When Malcolm Bush was originally recruited to attend Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, N.J., as a freshman, it was at the quarterback position.

TE Malcolm Bush Profile

A few years later he is starring at tight end and defensive end at Hackensack High School, however this year he'll be going back to calling the signals again.

At 6-foot-3, 235 pounds Malcolm Bush has the size to play at either defensive end or tight end, however the programs showing him interest right now all seem to like him on the offensive side of the ball. While he has yet to pick up his first offer, he does have number of "verbal offers" and is receiving attention from around the country.

"Clemson, Boston College, Rutgers and Virginia have all told me that they are going to offer me," Bush said. "They just all want me to come and visit them so they can eyeball me and let me see the campuses before they do from what I've been told."

The Hackensack, N.J., native has yet to see up all of his visits, but will be going to those four schools and may attend some others showing interest as well.

"Ohio State has been sending me a lot of mail and says that they are very interested in me," Bush explained. "Apparently they are going to move Jacob Stoneburner out to wide receiver instead of tight end. They are a big-time program with a lot of prestige that always draws a huge crowd. They are also consistent winners and brought in a great class this year."

"I just talked to Coach Billy Napier at Clemson and he is ready to offer, but says he doesn't want another de-commitment at tight end like they had with a kid last year, so he just wants me to come down and campus before they put it in writing."

"Coach Urban Meyer spoke to my coach and wants me to visit Florida," Bush stated. "I just spoke to Coach (John) Hevesy yesterday and if they offered me I think I'd go there because I grew up a Gator fan and would love to be one."

As a junior, Bush caught 17 passes for 277 yards and two touchdowns. On defense he made 55 tackles, three sacks and forced three fumbles.
