Rush Headed To Tempe

Salt Lake City (Utah) East defensive end Korey Rush wrapped up his recruiting process Thursday when he committed to the Sun Devils…

Twenty four hours ago, Salt Lake City (Utah) East defensive end Korey Rush was excited about a new offer from Utah State and the possibility to visiting programs this summer. However, the Arizona State coaches came by his school today and were rewarded after with their third commit in the 2014 class.

"Coach Chip Long came out again today and every time I am around him I feel like that is where I need to be," said Rush. "I trust the people down there and the program. I think I can do big things there."

"I committed to Coach Long and I am calling the rest of the coaches later," said Rush. "Coach Long was saying how pumped he was about my decision. They offered me the first time they saw me, I know I am undersized and that makes it harder to like me, I just trust them."

Rush has been leaning toward the Sun Devils for some time and has visited the campus twice.

"I was down there once for a basketball tournament and once just to check it out during spring training," said Rush. "The campus is just beautiful. We were walking down the street and they were showing us the dorms, just how nice the campus is. It's not why I decided to go there though, it's about the people, the coaches they have and the players."

Rush's father is a coach in the Los Angeles Angels organization and that allowed Korey to spend many of his springs down in Arizona.

"I have been going down there since I was eleven," said Rush. "I know the area and I have been around it a bunch."

Rush is not sure about his summer schedule, but no longer plans to attend as many college camps.

"I may go out to a couple camps, just see how the summer goes. I will for sure be at the All-Poly camp," said Rush.

He also talked about the pressure this takes off his final year in high school.

"It just made it so that my senior year I can try and win a state title for East High School," said Rush. "Now recruiting is not my main priority."
