"I got a letter from them yesterday," said Bernstine. "I was really excited. It's always been one of my favorites. I'm just really happy with the news that I got. I also heard from Iowa State. They want me to come to their junior day."
"I know a lot of people who have offers went to camps last year. I never did that. So my recruitment is going to be fine. Teams just want to see me," said the 2012 prospect. "I'm going to the Colorado camp, the Texas A&M one, I've been invited to the USC camp, the Iowa State one, and probably a couple more.
"My coach I know is talking to a few schools about me, so I expect something to happen soon."
