First three offers for San Antonio safety

San Antonio (Texas) Warren safety Joseph Bonugli knows that he can play college football. Now college football programs have joined him in that sentiment. The 6-foot-1 190 pound prospect has his first three offers in with potentially more on the way.

"Colorado State has offered me," Bonugli said. "Army has offered me. SMU has offered me. My first one (Colorado State) was about two weeks ago and then they started coming in about three days apart from each other."

Bonugli was excited to see the offers begin to come in as it showed him that his work is beginning to pay off. However, he also has expectations of more offers to come.

"I have dreams to just play Division I football anywhere so of course I'm interested in them," he said. "A lot of Big 12 schools I think are going to offer me soon. OSU and Iowa State are on the boarder line and Kansas too.

"They've been talking to me a lot. They've been telling me, we like you a lot and we're going to offer some safeties and we think you can be one of them."

While Oklahoma State, Kansas and Iowa State look to be the closest three to a new offer, Bonugli has his eyes on another Big 12 program that he hopes will join them with increased interest.

"I liked Texas Tech ever since I was little," he said. "I've been talking to their coach a lot and they like me too. They want to get me to their one day camp so that their DB coach can see me."

Along with his plans to hit the Texas Tech one-day camp, Bonugli has put some thought into some other summer plans.

"I got a personal invitation to go the Texas camps at UT in Austin on June 8th," he said. "I've got a bunch of brochures and I'm gonna get it planned out."

Between the whistles, Bonugli brings a lot to the table.

"I'm really good at readying plays and coming down hill and hitting people," he said. "I'm a good one-on-one coverer and I'm real good in zones. A lot of people say I attack real good. I know how to hit. I bring the heat. My coach tells me all the time I'm a real smart player."
