Capehart is Eager to Learn

Tahj Capehart is one to watch in the 2017 class. The Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes wide receiver already holds three offers and could be on the cusp of landing others. Capehart talks the latest after the Virginia one-day camp.

Tahj Capehart may only be a 2017 prospect, however, with three offers in tow, the Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes wide receiver is one to watch.

“I have offers from Virginia Tech, Old Dominion and UNC-Charlotte,” he said. “Virginia and James Madison are also showing interest in me.”

Capehart was at UVa’s one-day camp, and he certainly left an impression.

“I definitely showed I can run routes very well, that I have great footwork, and I am determined to do what I need to do to get a scholarship.”

During the camp, Capehart was able to receive some tips from Virginia assistant and wide receivers coach Marques Hagans.

“(He helped teach) how to get out your brakes, how to run routes better, and how to use your footwork when you use your routes… and always go out there and do 100 percent all the time.”

Although he does not hold an offer from the Wahoos, the 5-foot-10, 165-pound Capehart already feels connected with the UVa program and would welcome an offer.

“It would be great. All the people I work with, Turtle (Corwin Cutler), Jamil (Kamara), Quin (Blanding), all of them go here now. It will be a great honor to get an offer from them.”

He is also eager to learn more about the Virginia program for himself.

“I am trying to learn a little more about the program. How they work, their work ethic-because I know Jamil’s work ethic is ridiculous- so I want to see how they work at UVa.”

For now though, Capehart is enjoying being a high school student athlete and is welcoming the return of football.

“I’m just waiting for the season. Our DBs all of them have offers from the like of Oregon, so practices are very hectic with them,” he explained. “ I definitely want to get on my catches; I don’t want any drop balls. This fast paced offense (at Ocean Lakes) is going to be real good.”
