Bunting Adds SEC Offer

Bunting Adds SEC Offer

The second offer is in for Hinsdale Central (Ill.) tight end Ian Bunting, and it comes after a pretty exciting visit. Check out the latest with Bunting on his newest offer, general recruiting and more.

2014 tight end Ian Bunting of Hinsdale Central (Ill.) visited Vanderbilt Saturday -- and came away impressed.

"They took us on a whole campus tour and I really liked the campus, its really nice," Bunting said. "We got in pretty early on Saturday so my mom and I just hung out in Nashville for a while which was a lot of fun."

He continued, "We went to some good restaurants and listened to some country music. After that we went to school for the recruiting stuff and took the tour, and met the coaches."

The coaches also impressed Bunting on his visit.

"Coach Franklin gave some really good speeches before the game and is a really good guy," Bunting said. "Vanderbilt would be a good opportunity, Coach Franklin was talking about it before the game."

He added, "He was saying do you want to go to a school that already has a legacy or make history here, that is definitely intriguing."

Bunting's Saturday became even more exciting right before the game.

"Right before they were going into the locker room, Coach Franklin ran over to my mom and myself, and then told me how much they liked me and that they wanted to see me in person."

He continued, "And he said now that they saw me in person, they said they were gonna offer me a full scholarship."

Adding his second offer, was something that Bunting wasn't quite expecting.

"I don't know if I would say I was expecting an offer," Bunting said. "I had a good feeling, that something productive would happen. But I didn't want to jinx myself so I was trying not to think about it."

Overall, Bunting graded out the visit pretty highly.

"Definitely an A, I loved it," Bunting said. "It is definitely one of my top schools, and it is a really good combination of athletics and academics which I am interested in. I really liked the campus too, and I got to talk to a bunch of the recruits, and some guys that already committed there -- they are all really nice guys."

Bunting added another new school to the mix -- Ole Miss -- who he has recently begun hearing from as well.
