Now, he's helped planned a trip to watch the Cardinals play.
Bonnafon, a senior at Trinity High School, said the commitments all have a chat group they communicate with each other through and when talk turned to watching U of L in the Russell Athletic Bowl he perked up.
"We just all started talking about it," he said.
On Saturday, Bonnafon will spend the evening with two other U of L commitments watching the Cardinals play Miami in the bowl game.
"It should be a lot of fun," Bonnafon said. "We all just talked about going and Desean and George are going to be here."
"We already knew each other from our visits," Rushing said of the trio. "We all can't wait to get started (at U of L).
"I can't wait to see the game. I feel like I'm ready to get out there and be part of the team. I don't like Miami. I live about 20 minutes from campus and can't wait till we beat them."
There will be plenty of recruits watching the game from afar but Bonnafon said it was "cool" that three could watch it together in the stands.
