a school says, 'Hey, we don't want you to play quarterback. We want you to play something else,' that's not going to be a huge deciding point."
The Cheyenne East star quarterback was in the middle of leading his team to a 14 13 victory over Natrona County in the Wyoming State High School Class 4A Football Championship game last November. He'd rush for both of the Thunderbirds' touchdowns on the day.
But though the position is a factor, Bartlett said it isn't a crucial one.
"To go to a school like Oregon or Utah and play linebacker, that's definitely not out of the picture just because I'm not playing quarterback," Bartlett said. "But I really like playing quarterback. That's what I've put a lot of time into the last 4 5 years. But if Nike Air Max American Flag Black
"That could be the perfect fit."
Another key element is not where he'd play in the country, but on the field. Both Wyoming and Colorado have said Bartlett would get a chance to play quarterback, the position where he threw for 1,521 yards and 13 touchdowns and ran for another 1,400 yards and 19 touchdowns in 2013 as a junior. Most other programs have Bartlett slated as a linebacker.

It's his state school. And for years, he has dreamed of representing it.
"I haven't actually been out there and seen the campus for myself yet," Bartlett said of Oregon. "Wyoming and Colorado, we've had a great relationship. I've been talking to them for over a year. So, you can't really put Oregon ahead of them."
Bartlett said a representative from Oregon flew to Cheyenne to speak with his coach as well as Bartlett. He also receives regular letters and communicates frequently on social media with the Pac 12 power.
Based on the numbers, it isn't hard to see why Oregon would be interested in the Cowboy State's premier prospect. Air Max Price Lebanon
"It would be really cool to bring that full circle and be able to play for them."
Until he sees more, Bartlett's rankings will remain fairly fluid.
The 6 foot 4, 215 pound athlete is plenty capable on the defensive side as well, having racked up 57 solo tackles, 30 assists and two fumble recoveries in the 2013 season. Much of that success was spurred by his background in wrestling, where the three time state champ posted a 46 0 record last season and is 138 5 in his high school career.
pretty good relationship," Bartlett said. "That's pretty important to me. You need to make sure you know and are comfortable with the people you're going to be spending the next 4 5 years of your life with."
Standing there, with an iconic bucking horse stamped at midfield, Bartlett, now a rising senior, couldn't help but wonder.
For a brief moment, Tevis Bartlett allowed himself to stand on Jonah Field and imagine.
The Cheyenne East standout, who is ranked as a three star prospect by Rivals, is in no rush to make a final decision. Bartlett would prefer to play out his senior season, and let the chips fall where they may.
"That's why Wyoming right now is my No. 1 school," he said. "I don't know if you could go find a house in Wyoming where there isn't something that says 'Wyoming' on it in their closet or on their vehicle or whatever it is. I grew up watching the Cowboys and rooting them on.
Bartlett, Wyoming's top in state target, currently holds scholarship offers from five schools: UW, Colorado, Colorado State, Utah, and most recently, Oregon. When asked to rank his favorites, the dual threat quarterback and linebacker answered in the following order:

"I really want to focus on my team and have a great season," he said. "But then at the same time, I don't want to shut any doors too early. You never know who could look at my senior film and say, 'Hey, we want to take a serious look at this guy.'
Or, the perfect fit could be sitting in his backyard. Bartlett said he speaks on the phone with Wyoming coach Craig Bohl roughly every other week. His relationship with the coaching staff remains strong, as it has been since the beginning.
Though Oregon, Colorado and Utah all belong to the Pac 12 Conference and tout gaudy stadiums and proud traditions, Wyoming has one advantage that its peers do not.
Bartlett, who attended Wyoming's individual camp last week, will be traveling to Palo Alto, California, in late July for a camp at Stanford, and then will drive from there to Eugene, Oregon, for his first unofficial visit with the Ducks.
"You're standing on the field and looking up and thinking, 'Man, it would be cool if this stadium was full and everyone was watching me and wearing the brown and gold,'" he said Wednesday. "I definitely saw that while we were there."
But despite the stakes, War Memorial Stadium also home to the Wyoming Cowboys was far from full. It was a venue Bartlett knew well, having watched countless games played there both in person and on television.
