The TCU Horned Frogs are in dire need of a good offensive tackle prospect for the 2015 class and they’ve identified Denton Ryan’s David Bolisomi (6’6” 292) as a player that could help their program. HornedFrogBlitz.com caught up with “Big Dave” this evening to get his thoughts on the recent offers he’s received, namely the one he just picked up from TCU.
”It’s kind of surprising but I feel blessed” said Bolisomi. “I’ve been working for this all year and it’s finally paying off, so this is a good thing for me.”
Bolisomi, who is new to the offensive tackle position, is just now starting to take off on the recruiting front. With offers from Grambling State and Abilene Christian, the Denton Ryan lineman was getting interest from bigger schools but now, that interest is turning in to legit offers from big time programs.
Schools like North Texas and San Diego State decided to offer but in the last two days, bigger schools have thrown their hats in to the ring. Boise State offered, then others followed. Houston offered, then came Arizona State, then TCU and lastly, Oklahoma State. With a slew of offers over the last 48 hours, Bolisomi feels like he’s being rewarded for all of his hard work.
”Like I said, it’s a huge blessing for me because I’ve been working for this and trying to get better” he said. “All of those schools stick out to me because an offer is an offer and I’m truly blessed for the coaches to put their trust in me and for them to offer me.”
”Second of all, these big schools that are offering me, all of them are good programs so it’s just really great right now.”
Before the last 48 hours, Bolisomi didn’t have a lot of options and when doing an interview with our own Jeremy Clark, “Big Dave” told him that he would commit to TCU if the Horned Frogs were to offer. Well, things can change quickly in recruiting and Bolisomi’s recent scholarship haul has the big lineman slowing things down and thinking it through.
”I mean, obviously TCU is one of my top choices but I’m sitting it out right now” he said. “I want to see who all offers and stuff but no doubt TCU is up there among the top colleges on my list.”
With only a handful of games under his belt as an offensive tackle, Bolisomi says he’s looking forward to getting in to a good program and then taking a year to get stronger and improve on his game.
”I’m still learning the game and I’m definitely going to redshirt wherever I go” he said. “I want to take that year and get stronger because that’s a big thing on the o-line. I need to work on my foot work and still learn the game and that’s my goal. That’s my goal and that’s where I strive to be.”
Bolisomi says he would like to be in the medical field wherever he goes and wants to make the final decision on the school of his choice in the next few weeks.
