Michigan Football Recruiting: Ian Bunting Receives Offer From Oklahoma


2014 tight end Ian Bunting has seen some quality offers roll through the door since March 21st. That trend did not change on Thursday as the Top 15 tight end received an offer from Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma Sooners.

The four-star recruit has received offers from the Oklahoma Sooners, Michigan Wolverines, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Ohio State Buckeyes, Oregon Ducks, Vanderbilt Commodores, Wisconsin Badgers, Illinois Fighting Illini, Indiana Hoosiers, Iowa Hawkeyes, Minnesota Golden Gophers, Missouri Tigers, Nebraska Cornhuskers, North Carolina Tar Heels, Northwestern Wildcats, Ole Miss Rebels, Purdue Boilermakers, South Florida Bulls, USC Trojans, and Virginia Tech Hokies.

There is no surprise that the conference most interested in the Illinois recruit is the Big Ten.

Bunting has offers from ten Big Ten teams thus far and still is receiving interest from the Michigan State Spartans and the Penn State Nittany Lions.

The six teams that the 2014 TE is most interested in are Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Vanderbilt, and Wisconsin. Bunting has three visits scheduled with some of the teams in this “Top 6.” He will visit Oregon on April 6th, Notre Dame on April 13th, and Michigan on April 22nd.

Outside of the “Top 6,” there is no team that poses a challenge to land Bunting in 2014. The teams in the driver’s seat at this point are the Michigan Wolverines, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and Ohio State Buckeyes.

As a junior in 2012, Bunting recorded 412 receiving yards on 16 receptions and four touchdowns.

The four-star recruit is currently ranked 11th in the state of Illinois and 11th among tight ends in the Class of 2014 by 247Sports.
