The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Bimonte was impressive during performances at last month's Schiano Shootout 7-on-7 tournament and during an appearance at Rutgers camp a few days later.
"They're supposed to call my high school (Monday) because their coaches have been on vacation," Bimonte said. "But I think they're going to talk about it in the office (Monday). So, I'm hoping."
But even if the Scarlet Knights come through with an offer, Bimonte isn't planning on making a snap decision.
"If they offered me," he said, "I would want to take a visit and then talk to my parents and coaches around me and stuff like that and see if that's the best fit for me."
Bimonte has heard from other Big East schools, including Syracuse and Connecticut, but his only camp was at Rutgers. Meanwhile, the Owls are making a strong push while other schools decide whether to offer.
And Temple made sure Bimonte knew where he stood on its recruiting board.
"They told that they need a quarterback and I am that guy," Bimonte said. "I can't take forever. Say I don't choose them, then they're kind of beaten out of a quarterback. They haven't pressured me. They told me I'm their guy.
"They've said all positive things to me, try to make me commit there, but I'm trying to wait it out and see what's the best option for me."
However, Bimonte will not be waiting long to make a decision because his focus is about to turn toward his senior season at Manalapan High and a quest for a state title.
"I really want to get this done within the next week," Bimonte said. "My high school team, we have a ton of returning starters and very high expectations. I'm very dedicated to my senior year. I don't want that college decision to be on my mind, thinking about that while I'm trying to get better with my team."
