Bernardo Nunez talks about Junior Day at RU

DE Bernardo Nunez attended Rutgers junior day last Saturday and talked to SOR about the trip and his recruiting. Come see what he had to say.

Hoboken High School defensive end Bernardo Nunez attended Rutgers' junior day last Saturday and came out of the experience with positive things to say about the program.

"I was very impressed with their weight room," Nunez said. "I like how the coaches represent themselves."

Nunez said that he hasn't been given any new offers yet. He also said that his top five hasn't changed and that it's Florida, Boston College, Syracuse and Virginia.

On what junior day's he might go to, Nunez said he "maybe" going to Syracuse's and Virginia's.

The three main factors in his final decision has changed since his last interview. Before, when he brought up the location, he was focusing on what type of area it was in, but it's now meaning how close to home it is. Playing time has also become a major factor.

"Location because I want to be close to home so my parents could see me play and I would be able to go home if I wanted to," Nunez said. "Also, the coaches style. I want an upbeat coach that is strict and is big on discipline, but one that is also outgoing. Playing time is another factor."

Rutgers wasn't considered a favorite to Nunez before because he didn't know much about it. Now that he's attended a junior day and is interested in a college that is close to home, the Scarlet Knights seem to be picking up steam in the race for Nunez's services. Also add in the fact that the coaches style is important to the defensive end prospect and he had good things to say about Head Coach Schiano and his staff.

"There a good school and I could see myself playing there," he said.

Rutgers is currently the only school that he holds an offer from.
