Bullough Keeping All Options Open

Traverse City St. Francis (Mich.) sophomore DB Byron Bullough talks East Lansing trip this weekend and the unexpected school who dropped in last week.

Where will Byron Bullough go to college? It's too early to tell for the class of 2014 prospect. What position will he play? That is also up in the air as he played running back and defensive back as a sophomore.

What is known is that Bullough, the youngest of three brothers, is a good football player in his own right and should be heavily recruited over the next two seasons.

On Saturday, he visited Michigan State for their spring game, a place where his oldest brother Max is committed, and where middle brother Riley is set to begin school at this fall.

"The spring game was awesome," Byron said. "It was exciting. It was fun to get out and watch the players. I thought they looked extremely well and I think they can do some pretty good things this upcoming season."

Obviously, Bullough is pretty familiar with Michigan State and their coaches. He did have a chance to reconnect with them again over the weekend though.

"I talked to a few coaches, Coach Tressel and Coach Dantonio. They said just say hello and thanks for coming."

Bullough is being recruited by a few programs early on and that number should grow over the next few months. Last week, he had another Big Ten school drop in.

"Yes, I've heard from a few programs, Michigan, Purdue, Central Michigan, some other schools too like Youngstown State. I'm getting mail and a few coaches stopped in by the school. A Michigan coach just came in last week."

While they are a heated rival of the school both his brothers and several family members, Bullough is happy to be recruited by the Wolverines, or any program for that matter.

"I would definitely look at Michigan. They're obviously a storied program and I don't have any offers, so I'm willing to look at anyone who has interest in me."

That is precisely why he will hit a number of camps over the summer.

"I haven't decided yet. I'm still in the process of planning, but I plan on going to MSU, Notre Dame, and a few other Big Ten programs."

Bullough continues to grow and mature, but while both of his brothers ended up at linebacker, he is unsure if that is in the cards for him or if he will continue to play his more natural positions of running back and free safety. What he does know is, he just wants to be on the field.

"It's too early to talk about position, but I'm just free wherever. Either side of the ball, it doesn't matter to me. Whatever the team I'm going to, what they want me to play, that's what I'll play."

And if he has any questions about that, or anything else, he could not have two better people to ask them to than Max and Riley.

"It's great. I've followed them throughout the recruiting process, Max I've followed while he's playing in college. It's great to have that with me and the advantage over other people. I ask them questions all the time. It's great."
