USC tenders offer to Midwest tight end

USC signed one player from the Midwest in the 2013 recruiting cycle, four-star running back Ty Isaac of Joliet (Ill.) Catholic Academy, and the Trojans appear to be looking for more this year.

A handful of offers have been extended to Midwest prospects in the last week, including tight end Ian Bunting (Hinsdale, Ill./Hinsdale Central).

The 6-foot-6 prospect got the offer on Wednesday from new assistant coach Mike Ekeler, a former coach at Indiana and Nebraska who is plenty familiar with the area.
