Sun Devils doing well with Bundage

Calvin Bundage visited Arizona State unofficially this summer and the state of Oklahoma's No. 1 prospect is already planning a return trip.

Four star safety Calvin Bundage, the No. 1 prospect in the Oklahoma ranked by OKPreps, has had relatively quiet summer when it comes to his recruitment.

As the summer comes to an end, he said he does not have a school leading his recruitment, but he will definitely visit one school officially. That school will be Arizona State.

“I like ASU a lot,” Bundage said. “I went down there for an unofficial this summer, seeing everything they were building, all the stuff they had and I got a good relationship with the coaches so I like Arizona State a lot.”

Bundage said the main reason he is interested in ASU is his relationship with the coaching staff, especially defensive coordinator Keith Patterson. Bundage said he is set on officially visiting ASU and has not decided where he will take his four other official visits.

At 6-foot-2 and weighing 190 pounds, Bundage plays safety for Santa Fe High School in Edmond, Oklahoma. He is the No. 16 ranked safety prospect in the country according to Scout.com.

Other schools that have reportedly offered Bundage a scholarship are Arkansas, Michigan and the in-state contenders Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

On his unofficial trip to ASU, Bundage said he got a chance to talk extensively with Patterson, safeties coach Chris Ball and head coach Todd Graham.

They spent time in the film room and he said the coaches told him he would play the Spur hybrid safety and linebacker position at ASU.

Since his visit, Bundage said Patterson has kept in contact and they communicate daily.

When Bundage takes his official trip, he wants to check out all everything about the program, meet with the coaches again and talk with some players.

When he talks to players and coaches on the official trip, he said just wants the coaches and players to be honest with him.

“(I want to know) really everything and what I’d be playing, how they think about me, are the players going to give an honest opinion about all the coaches and everything,” Bundage said.

Going forward, Bundage said he should make his commitment at the end of his high school football season. He said he wants to take five official visits before making his decision.

SunDevilScource.com reported in June Bundage had a Top-7 list of ASU, Arkansas, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon and TCU.
