Bisharat, the No. 289 overall prospect in the class nationally, said he is being recruited by ASU co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Chris Ball. So far it has been difficult for Bisharat and Ball to talk on the phone, with coaches unable to initiate any calls until May.
“We haven’t been able to connect,” Bisharat said. “I know he’s coming out this spring some time to come out and hang out and all that.”
Bisharat said the last time he talked on the phone with Ball was when Arizona State offered him a scholarship last year during his junior season.
Other schools have also offered scholarships to the 6-foot-2, 210 pound athlete from Jesuit High School in Carmichael, Calif. Bisharat is ranked the No. 6 athlete prospect in California.
He said he has about 20 scholarship offers, including Arizona, Boise State, Boston College, Cal, Colorado, Colorado State, Fresno State, Michigan State, Nevada, Pitt, UNLV, Washington and Washington State.
Bisharat said he wants to take a visit to Arizona State at some point in the offseason. He said his sister attends Central Arizona College. When he visits her, he said he will check out both the ASU and UA campuses.
Two weeks ago, Bisharat said he was on his spring break and he was busy taking visits to other schools. He said he visited Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, Washington, Washington State and flew out to Michigan State during his week off from school.
Bisharat is still curious about ASU. The next time he connects with Ball, Bisharat said he wants to find out how the coaches would use him at ASU.
“I kind of want to know what position they want me to play for them,” Bisharat said. “I don’t think that was a huge conversation when I did talk to him, when I have talked to him or whatever. But yeah, I kind of want to figure out where they need me and then what I can do for them and all that.”
He said his personal preference would play a position on offense but said he is willing to play defense.
Bisharat said he will participate in the Nike Opening regional in Oakland on May 17.
When it comes to college camps, he said if a program that has offered him and sets up a camp in the Sacramento area he will meet up with the coaches and do some drills.
Bisharat said he should narrow his choices down soon and release a top 10 or top five in the next couple weeks.
He wants to learn more about the ASU program. After the Sun Devils won 10 games last year, Bisharat knows one thing about ASU.
“They compete and they win games,” Bisharat said.
