The Lincoln star was hampered during his sophomore season, but turned in a junior year performance that has put him on the map.
One of the Des Moines Metro's best running backs, Bernstine rushed for over 1193 yards on 19 touchdowns, averaging nearly 10 yards a carry.
The CIML coaches voted him on the elite CIML All-Defensive team.
His nearly 1200 yards on the ground was good, but his 83 tackles on defense was even better.
"USC just invited me down to all there summer camps and I had a Notre Dame coach coming to my school asking about me," said Bernstine to HI on Wednesday night. "It seems like I'm getting on every ones radar and I haven't ever even been to a camp or sent my highlight tape out yet. When I do, I don't what is going to happen."
He will look to attend junior days at all five schools.
"No verbal offers yet, but coaches are definitely letting me know that I have talent and they are evaluating me," said Bernstine. "They say I can play at the next level."
Coming into the 2010 season, Bernstine told Scout.com that he had seen a lot of growth in his game. Something he is looking to replicate again going into his senior year.
"The biggest thing that I'm working on is probably my footwork. You can never be fast enough and I'm looking to improve my balance. Balance is everything in football."
HaweyeInsider.com will continue to monitor Bernstine and inform Iowa fans if he makes it to the Hawkeyes junior day.
