He has offers to play for Miami (FL), Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, N.C. State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Rutgers, South Carolina, Syracuse, Tennessee, Central Florida, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

“Right now, I am just enjoying the process,” Bonitto said regarding if he had a top list.

When asked about Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, Bonitto said, “Great coach. Everyone has bought into what he’s doing in the few years he’s been there. That says a lot.”

Bonitto made 43 tackles for St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida last season. He logged 14.5 tackles for a loss, six sacks, two pass breakups, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.
