Offers pick up for five-star Bullard

Offers are continuing to rise for newly minted five-star defensive end Jonathan Bullard. The Shelby (N.C.) Crest prospect pulled down two big scholarships recently and discussed what's next.
"I got offers from California on Friday and then I talked to Miami and got an offer from them on Sunday," he said. "They are pretty good. To get an offer from California, you're doing something right and it's my first one from way over there. It felt pretty good.
"The Miami one, that's where a whole bunch of football, NFL guys went, Ray Lewis and all that."

Bullard noted that he is intent on visiting Miami sometime soon and emphasized he's quite interested in the 'Canes offer.
"I'm really interested," he said. "I've heard it's a good school and a nice place. I don't know that much about it, but I want to know more about the place."
Bullard noted plans to visit Alabama sometime soon as well.
The latest scholarships put the No. 16 player in the country up to approximately 15 offers. Is there anyone he's hoping to get a scholarship from still?
"I'd like to get Texas," he said. "I've heard that's a really nice school and Vince Young is my favorite player. I want to get down to see how Texas is."
Following the offers, Bullard landed the five-star rating on Monday and discussed it more.
"That's a real big honor," he said. "I didn't really expect it. I'm glad I'm a five-star recruit it means a lot. I'm pushing myself and my coaches have helped me to get where I'm at. I'm going to keep working to use the talent I have.
"To be the No. 16 player overall in the nation, that's really big. I felt good."
