Ryan Bonner, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound, wide receiver from Tuscola, Illinois has seen his fair share of college recruiters come through his school. Word around the campfire is that if offered, Bonner will commit to Illinois.
"I don't have an offer yet." Bonner said. "There have been a lot of coaches visiting the school. Illinois, Purdue, Stanford and Princeton have all called me so far. My top schools right now would be Purdue, Illinois, Stanford, Northwestern and Michigan."
Bonner will be a three-year starter for Tuscola. Bonner plays running back and flanker and he projects as a wide receiver at the next level.
As a sophomore Bonner scored 28 touchdowns and he scored 29 touchdowns in 2001. As a junior he had 48 catches for 817 yards and eight touchdowns.
If Illinois offers a scholarship will he verbally commit?
"It's between Illinois and Purdue right now. It all depends on what I decide on as far as a major goes. If I decide to major in Pharmacy, I'll probably commit to Purdue if they offer. If I don't major in Pharmacy, I'd like to go to Illinois." Bonner said.
Bonner has been receiving high praise from college recruiters this month. Bonner is describes as being lightning fast (4.4 speed) and tough.
Bonner says he'll camp at both Purdue and Illinois this summer and he'll be attending the Illinois 7 on 7 tournament with his team. He carries a 4.9 GPA in the classroom and he scored 25 on his ACT.
July 20, 2002 Bonner says
I still don't have an offer. I camped at Purdue and Illinois and I went to a scouting combine as well. I'd say that Purdue, Illinois, Notre Dame, Missouri and Iowa are my favorites.
