Clemson was the first to offer Bush, but they certainly won't be the last as he is receiving attention from some of the top programs around the country including Michigan and UCLA. The 6-4, 230 pound defensive start continues to remain firm with his leader. "Clemson is still my leader," stated Bush.

"My parents really wanted me to schedule a visit to Clemson as soon as possible. I talked with my coach this week and he setup the visit. I will be going to Clemson with my parents on July 18. I look forward to meeting all of the coaches and some of the players. I want to see what everything is like."

Don't expect a commitment from Bush when he visits the valley later this month. "I don't think I'll commit. I still want to wait till later this year."

What makes Bush, who had an impressive 88 tackles including 6 sacks as a junior, such an impressive defensive prospect? "Speed and strength," said Bush.

The Jack Britt High School star plans to work hard his senior season to continue to improve. "I will try to get faster and a lot stronger. I want to gain some more weight. I will also practice staying low out of my stance."

Coach O'Cain is recruiting Bush as a weakside defensive end for the Tigers. Bush plans to attend night school this fall to work on his GPA to insure that he can play Division 1-AA football next season.
