When he made the top eight in early April, Miami, Ohio, and Texas were also on his list, but those schools didn’t make the final list.

The No. 5 forward and No. 58 prospect in the 247Sports Composite industry rankings is looking to make a summer decision.

“I want to make a decision in July, after the visits,” he said.

In the spring, he visited several schools, including one in Georgia.

“Another team with different coaches (than the fall) with (assistant) coach Fran Brown and (offensive coach) Stacey Sirels,” he said. “Meeting them for the first time was amazing. It was great to visit Georgia for the first time. Big school, great football program, good study. Everything went very well.
“Coach Kirby Smart is fun to hang out with.”

He also visited LSU.

“Coach Brian Kelly has been recruiting me since Notre Dame,” Bizontis said. “It was amazing. Coach Brad Davis, offensive line coach, he seems like a great guy. We have a very good relationship. Not only in football, but in life.”

Bizontis was at Michigan State in late March and his relationship with offensive line coach Chris Kapilovich remains strong. Also in the “Spartans” is now a former teammate Jalen Berger.

“I love the coaching staff and coach (Mel) Tucker and when I was there I was able to spend some time with Jalen Berger so I know I would be comfortable if I decided to go to Michigan State,” Bizontis said. . “Coach Cap shows that he is interested in me, he often comes to my school to see how I train, we talk a lot on the phone. I have a strong relationship with him.”

Texas A&M continues to move northeast and has made a statement about how it is recruiting Bisontis. The fact that former Boston College coach Steve Addasio, who is known for developing offensive linemen, is now with Aggie is a plus.

Texas A&M is the only one of the five that he has not visited yet.

“I plan to go there on an official visit,” he said. “Coach Addasio and I get along very well. He’s a guy from the northeast. He really treats me. They develop kids.

Rutgers is a public school and has brought it to campus many times.

“I feel like they are outsiders,” he said. “I think, with or without me, they will soon become the top program in the Big Ten. If I went there, it would be a dream to help them achieve it.”
