“Even though he plays for a high school program that runs a flexbone-style offense, Bryant Wesco made a major impact at receiver as a junior. Wesco had 58 receptions for 1,160 yards and 14 touchdowns. He even had a 93-yard touchdown reception and averaged 20 yards a reception. “Bottom line, we want to win ball games,” Midlothian coach Doug Wendel told the Dallas Morning News. “You win ballgames by getting your best players the ball. We felt like we needed to alter our offense a little bit to get him involved more. Make sure that at the end of the game – regardless of if it’s the 15th game, the 16th game or the 10th game, whatever – if we lose a game, we need to make sure that the best players touch the ball all the time.” 

“He has had to work hard to get to the point where he’s become one of the top playmakers in the Lone Star State, but others believed in him early on. “(My trainer) kept telling me that if I kept training this way, I’d be one of the best players in the state,” Wesco told the newspaper. “At first I thought he was saying that just to say that. Now that I see it, I’m like, ‘Wow, I really am one of the best receivers in the state.’” Wesco is also a high and triple jumper on the Midlothian track team.”

Wesco ranks as the No. 34 player according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He also tabs in as the No. 9 wide receiver and the No. 7 player in the state of Texas.
