Bungum Talks Gopher Camp

Although not a household name, one of the most impressive players from this past week of Gopher camps was wide receiver Adam Bungum of Triton (Minn.) High School. GoldenSports.net caught up with Bungum to learn the latest on his camp season and his recruitment.

At 6-foot-2 and 180-pounds, Bungum has great receiver size to along with speed that helped him lead his 4x100 relay to a third place finish at state. Bungum recently showcased this athleticism at a recent Golden Gopher camp.

"I was clocked at a 4.71 and my short shuttle was 4.20 and I broad jumped 9'4.5"," he said. "I was hoping they would have tested vertical since I recently jumped a 38-inch at the Air Force camp."

"I felt I had a pretty good day and Coach Poore said they would be in touch after all the camp evaluations are over," said Bungum of his performance at camp.

The Minnesota coaching staff took notice of Bungum's skills.

"Coach Poore and Coach Kill said I did a nice job of catching the ball and that they like my size and strength," he said.

As a Minnesota native, Bungum is a lifelong Gopher fan.

"I was born and raised in Minnesota," he said. "I love the state and wish the Gophers had more recent success but I believe coach kill can turn it around. I like the fact that he is straight forward and tells it like it is."

Although Bungum is a big fan of the Gophers, his recruitment is still up in the air.

"Army sent me their registration link and Air Force is just completing their camp eval and Iowa State is very excited to get me down to camp," he said. "Coach Poore said I am still in the mix with the Gophers as well as UNI, South Dakota and North Dakota all want to see me at their camps so it is still pretty wide open."

With solid athleticism and a hardworking attitude, Bungum knows what he can bring to his future college team.

"A strong work ethic and a desire to be the best," he said. "I am committed in the classroom with a 3.8 GPA and I push myself every day to be the best I can be."
