Nicholas Bonaparte has a few offers to his credit but he seems to be waiting on a couple of schools that have been showing interest.
Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Hampton are the three schools that have offered the 6-foot-4, 280-pound offensive center from Baltimore (Md.) Dunbar, and while he plans to officially visit each of those schools those trips probably won't come until after the season is over.
He would like to take a couple of other officials if those opportunities arise.
"I've taken unofficials to West Virginia and Maryland and I'm really liking them," Bonaparte said this week.
"I went to West Virginia when they played Baylor. They're just kind of saying they'll wait and see. That's what I've been hearing from West Virginia . Their offensive line coach really likes me and likes my film.
"I went to Maryland when they played Connecticut and Wake Forest . Everything is still the same with them."
"Still the same" refers to a holding pattern similar to where he finds himself with the Mountaineers.
West Virginia has three offensive line commits but the fact that one is a center, Tyler Tezeno, would seem to hurt Bonaparte's chances with the Mountaineers. Maryland has just two offensive line commits and while neither is a pure center prospect Jajuan Dulaney could get a look at that spot.
