Jack Britt High School
Fayetteville, North Carolina

The impressive defensive end prospect had 88 tackles as a junior, including 12 tackles for loss and 6 sacks. Bush has all the tools to be an impact player on the next level as he combines a 6-4, 230 pound frame with outstanding 4.6 speed.

Bush went on record with CUTigers.com today to name a leader. "Clemson is definitely my leader," stated Bush.

Clemson is the only current offer for the rising star from Jack Britt High School, but North Carolina and Virginia are also showing interest. Michigan was showing interest early but appear to have backed off. Expect the interest level to increase in the fall as Bush plans to attend night school next fall to improve his GPA.

Bush plans to wait until the season starts to make a commitment. "I want to wait till the season starts to see if I get any other offers before committing."

Coach O'Cain has made a great impression on this prize recruit. "Coach O'Cain is an great guy. He is down to earth and someone I can talk to. He tries to get to know me and my family. He doesn't just talk football when he calls like the other coaches."

Summer camp plans currently include a July visit to Clemson and possibly a visit to Virginia. Bush is looking forward to camping at Clemson. "I want to tour the campus. I want to see the atmosphere and see how the coaches interact with the players."

Location and weather will both have an impact or where Bush will play his college football. "I don't want to play too far from home. I want travel expenses for my family to be low so they can see me play. I also want to play where it is warm. I'm not too good with the cold."

We will continue to keep you posted on this outstanding defensive end prospect, right up through signing day 2004.
