Bundage Pleased with Iowa Opportunity, Planning Visit
The heat is on Calvin Bundage. The top-rated prospect in Oklahoma has offers from the in-state Sooners and Cowboys.
"I feel the pressure," he said.
Fans are pushing the Edmond Santa Fe High Safety to choose between the Sooner State rivals.
"I don’t pay any attention to it. Wherever I think is the best fit, that’s where I’m going," he said.
Bundage could disappoint both fan bases. He’s looking at options outside the borders.
"I’m considering everyone. I haven’t narrowed anything down," the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder said.
Iowa jumped in with a scholarship offer for Bundage on Tuesday.
"It was a surprise. I hadn’t talked to Iowa or received any mail from them. But I’ll most definitely consider Iowa. I hope to get a chance to visit there," he said.
Recruiting coordinator Seth Wallace called the safety with the offer.
"He explained how good I fit into the defense and how Iowa is a good place to play football. He said he liked how I hawked the ball down and how I stopped the run," Bundage said.
The Rivals.com three-star prospect said he’s begun learning about the Hawkeyes.
"I know a little bit about the program, not too much. I know that they play real physical in the Big Ten where they play. They know how to stop the run," he said.
Bundage also reports offers from Arizona, Houston, Michigan, Tennessee, Texas Tech and Tulsa.
"I’m looking to take visits in the summer. I’m going to try to go to as many schools as possible, mainly the close ones. I’m looking for a place where they do a lot with their safeties and nickel backs," he said.
Bundage, who competes in the long jump for the Santa Fe track team, said he’ll commit to a college on signing day in February.
