Versatility Is The Key To Bonaparte's Game

2018 Independence S Jasias Bonaparte (6-3, 197) is a versatile defensive back who has started to garner some interest from FBS schools...

After posting 42 tackles, two tackles-for-loss and two interceptions from his safety spot as a freshman in 2016, Bonapart has several schools interested in what he brings to the table.

"I have one offer right now -- Prairie View A&M -- and I have a few other FBS schools calling me and talking to me," Bonaparte told

Those schools include Alabama, Colorado State, Memphis, Northern Illinois and Purdue.

With lis length and ball skills, Bonaparte is the ideal candidate to play free safety at the next level.

"What sets me apart from other juco safeties is my ability to play the ball in the air and locate it and get up and get it at it's highest point," Bonaparte noted. "I feel like no receiver can jump with me since I'm as big as any receiver on the field.

"What I do best is being a signal-caller in the back end of a defense and locating and tracking the ball in the air. I can play man and zone and I can also come down and be a box player and I can also play the nickel position and cover tight ends and slots."

Bonaparte is set to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2017 football season.
