Purdue, Arizona State and Colorado State have offered Bruggman, a junior quarterback from Phoenix (Ariz.) Brophy College Prep, and he's recently received lots of new interest from Vanderbilt, Michigan State and Indiana.
He took an unofficial visit to USC for its rivalry game against UCLA and came away impressed by the experience.
"I had a nice talk with their quarterbacks coach before the game so we'll see how that goes," Bruggman said.
"It was very neat. I had never been to a game at USC before. They played UCLA that week so being a rivalry game it was high intensity and it was a great atmosphere there. Their tradition at USC is one of the best in the country. Hopefully the recruiting process with them will keep moving forward."
As for the instate schools, Bruggman said he hopes his offer from Arizona State still stands and that he'll have to talk with the new coaching staff.
In regards to Arizona, he had been talking to interim coach Tim Kish and wants to get a dialogue going with new coach Rich Rodriguez and his staff.
"I was in contact with coach Kish, who was the interim head coach, but since coach Rodriguez was at U of A I haven't talked to him or gotten anything in the mail," Bruggman said. "I know he just got there so we'll see what happens but as of right now I haven't had any contact with him.
"I actually got an offer from (Arizona State) from coach (Dennis) Erickson but with the new staff, we don't know who it is yet, so we'll see."
This off-season Bruggman is not sure about how many camps he'll attend but he does want to get out on some visits. He's also considering a trip to the U.S. Army National Combine in San Antonio.
"I would like to go see some schools if I'm able to," Bruggman said. "I probably won't do many camps. I got invited to the Army combine and the Semper Fidelis one but I'm not sure if I'm going to do those or not.
"I probably won't do many camps. I know the colleges have camps in June so I'd like to get to one or two of those if it fits into our passing schedule."
In his junior season, Bruggman threw for 2,497 yards with 37 touchdowns and two interceptions.
