Tyler Bruggman thought he would have a good time at Arizona State's junior day but the Phoenix (Ariz.) Brophy College Prep said the trip exceeded all of his expectations.
"It went great," Bruggman said. "It was more than I expected to say the least. It went really well.
"I saw the facilities and they were great but meeting with the coaches I didn't know what to expect. I really like coach (Todd) Graham and coach (Mike) Norvell, the offensive coordinator. Just spending the day with them I got to learn a lot about them and I really had a good time."

During the visit, Bruggman, who threw for 2,497 yards with 37 touchdowns and two interceptions in his junior season, got to watch some film to get a peek at what Arizona State's new offense would look like.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound pro-style quarterback liked everything about it - especially talking with the new coaches about what they envision.
"We watched a little bit of tape just to get a little feel for what their offense is like but the next step is to learn as much as I can about the offense and go from there," Bruggman said.
"I really like their passion and how they want a good group of guys to coach and be around. They don't just want anybody there. They want great guys around them. Their passion and their enthusiasm also stood out."
Bruggman, one of the top prospects in Arizona's 2013 class, said he plans to take things slowly in his recruitment.
Arizona, Arizona State, Purdue and Colorado State have offered and the junior quarterback is planning to take unofficial visits to USC and UCLA next month.
"I'm just trying to learn as much as I can about all my possible options and then go from there," Bruggman said.
