Tyler Bruggman already has one offer and is hearing from many other programs but the 2013 pro-style quarterback from Phoenix (Ariz.) Brophy Prep said he's more focused on a big junior season than his recruitment.
"I'm looking forward to the season," Bruggman said. "It should be a big year for us and we've had a good month leading up to our first game. I'm ready for the season to start.
"I'm going to focus on what I can control. I can't be on Rivals and look at all these other guys to see what they're doing. That's not making me better. I'll continue to work hard. What you do on Friday nights under the lights is what the coaches look for. I'm looking to have a big season and then recruiting will take care of itself."
Colorado State has already offered Bruggman, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound prospect, and he said Stanford, Michigan, Michigan State, Arkansas, Boise State, Texas A&M, Arizona State, Washington, Utah and Penn State are showing the most interest.
The Phoenix prospect camped at Stanford this summer and was supposed to visit Penn State but that couldn't be worked out. He also attended passing tournaments at Arizona State and San Diego State.
Since it's still so early in his recruitment that college coaches can't call him yet, Bruggman said it's difficult to gauge which teams are his favorites.
"It's hard to tell," Bruggman said. "Colleges aren't allowed to call me yet so it's hard to say. I don't have a great relationship with one school over the other so I don't know a lot about a lot of schools.
"I'm just keeping an open mind and I want to gather as much information as I can to learn about the possible options."
In his sophomore season, Bruggman threw for 1,304 yards and 11 touchdowns. Brophy Prep opens its season Friday night against Glendale (Ariz.) Mountain Ridge.
