More interest for NJ lineman

The hard work is starting to pay off for Tony Bonadies, but the offensive lineman from Leonia, N.J. is not letting off the gas.
"I'm working on dropping a little weight and getting quicker feet, more athletic and being faster," he said. "I thought we improved a lot as a team from last year. We are definitely looking good for next year. I improved a lot throughout the season so I was pretty happy with my last few games."
The 6-foot-4, 296-pound center, who said he would feel comfortable as a guard, tackle or center, has been receiving increased attention since the U.S. Army All-American Combine.

"The combine was a great experience and I liked playing against some really good competition," said Bonadies. "I'm hearing from Boston College, UConn, Rutgers, Temple, Pittsburgh, and recently Penn State and Georgia Tech."
Bonadies, who carries a 3.7 GPA, places a lot of importance on his education, which makes academics is a major factor in his decision making process.
"That's why I like schools like Boston College and UConn, because of the combination of athletics and academics," he said. "My dream school is Stanford, but right now I like Boston College and UConn.
"My dad grew up near UConn's campus and I feel really comfortable up there," said Bonadies. "I really like Boston College and the Boston area. I've been there a bunch of times and have a lot of family up there. Plus, I'm a big Red Sox fan."
