Dalis Bruce has transferred from Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista to Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, where four-star wide receiver Bryce Treggs is the star, for his senior season and Bruce said the move could help in his recruitment.
It will assuredly bring more exposure to Bruce, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound cornerback who has offers from Oregon State, Utah State and San Diego and could pick up many more early in his senior season.
"Right now I haven't been doing much with recruiting because I've been focused on learning the new offense at Bosco," Bruce said. "I'm sitting back and focusing on my senior year and the season coming up but everything is going well.

"That was one thing mentioned when they found out I was transferring down here that it was going to give me a lot of exposure. I wasn't thinking about it that way. I was thinking about how fun it was going to be to play with Bryce and others who have great talent. It will be fun to be on the same field as them."
According to Bruce, a lot of college coaches are waiting to see his first couple games to figure out if they're going to offer. So far, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Cal and Oregon have been showing the most interest after Bruce performed well throughout the spring and summer.
Playing on a bigger stage at St. John Bosco can only help his recruitment.
"There are a lot of coaches who have called and have talked to me and are interested in me and would love to make an offer," Bruce said.
"I think they're going to wait until my first game. I started the recruiting process late and a lot of coaches didn't pay attention to me my junior year. It really picked up this spring and all through the summer so they want to see me a little more."
Rivals.com rates Bruce, a three-star prospect, as the No. 54 cornerback in the 2012 class and No. 68 in the California state rankings. He had an especially good performance at the Stanford NIKE Camp.
