Luca Bruno has five offers and two are especially standing out but the Oak Park, Calif., three-star defensive end said he's keeping a close eye on one school in particular and he hopes it offers soon.
TCU might be a surprise favorite for some but Bruno said he has always liked the program, enjoys watching the defense play and the Horned Frogs have been in contact so he's hoping to get offered soon.
"TCU is one of my really, really top picks on my list," Bruno said. "It was always a dream to get recruited by them and that coming along made me very happy.

"Everyone knows how great Texas football is and a Texas school looking at a kid from California, to go out of their way to see somebody says a lot.
"I've watched them a couple times on TV and their defense plays hard-knock football and I like that."
Arizona and Oregon State stand out among the schools that have offered - Fresno State, Hawaii and San Diego State are also on the offer list - and Bruno said TCU, Utah and Cincinnati have shown the most interest recently.
Other than TCU, the 6-foot-4, 277-pound prospect said he's been really excited to hear from the Utes.
"Utah is also a great football team," Bruno said. "Hearing from those coaches was very, very exciting."
The three-star defensive end said an offer from TCU would mean a lot but if he had to decide at this point then it would probably be between Arizona and Oregon State, his two favorite offers.
An offer from TCU or USC could change the equation though.
