Bundy Talks Flip

New Mexico commit Marquis Bundy talks flip from Montana to UNM

Anthem (Az.) Boulder Creek wide receiver Marquis Bundy committed to Montana in December but flipped to New Mexico after visiting Albuquerque last week. Bundy talks with Scout.com about his change of heart.

Bundy says, "Coach Davie came by my school last Wednesday and we talked for about an hour and he said I have an offer from UNM and he would like me to come and visit. When I got back to Phoenix (after the visit), I called Coach Pflugrad from Montana and told him I would not be coming, it was hard but it was the best decision for me. Playing for Coach Davie is a great opportunity and I wont be looking back."

Bundy (6-4 200) also had offers from South Dakota State, Illinois State, Air Force, Cornell, North Dakota and NAU.

He continues about the official visit, "The trip was great and more than anything, I really liked many of the other recruits. We talked about how great it would be to turn the program around. Some other factors in my decision were the facilities, they were great the indoor facility was really nice. I think that the hiring of Coach Hilgart from ASU will help me get stronger. I really like the fact that its only six hours away and that my family can get on Southwest and watch me play easily. I am excited for the opportunity to play against teams like Arizona State, Texas, and Texas Tech. I get to play against the best. I think we can turn things around at New Mexico and I am excited to be a Lobo."

Bundy caught 31 passes for 362 yards and 4 TDs as a senior.
