Bush Down To Two

While much of the recruiting buzz around the IU football program in recent weeks has been about potential January visitors, there are a handful of players who have already taken their IU visits, yet remain undecided. One of those is Puyallup, Wash., offensive lineman Chris Bush.

While much of the recruiting buzz around the IU football program in recent weeks has been about potential January visitors, there are a handful of players who have already taken their IU visits, yet remain undecided. One of those is Puyallup, Wash., offensive lineman Chris Bush.

The 6-5, 275-pounder from Governor John Rogers H.S. made his official to Indiana Oct. 7, and there hasn't been much follow-up since that visit 2 ½ months ago. According to Bush the reason is because not a whole lot has changed since.

"It's pretty much the same – I haven't been on any other visits," said Bush. "I don't have any others planned right now, so there's not much of an update."

While not much has changed, Bush said Indiana is very much in the running to land him. He said he still talks to the IU coaching staff once every couple of weeks, and his decision will likely come down to Indiana and Idaho.

He plans on scheduling a visit to Idaho sometime in the not-too-distant future.

"Hopefully I can make my decision pretty soon," said Bush.

While Indiana's season came to a disappointing end after a 4-1 start, Bush said he still saw plenty of progress on the football field, which is a big reason why he has the Hoosiers at the top of his list.

"I like the fact Coach Hoeppner has been improving the program a lot," said Bush. "They didn't go to a bowl game this year, but they were in contention early on. They are definitely going up."

Academics is another big selling point for Bush, who plans to major in business in college.

"It's got a great business school, so I know a degree from there would really mean something," said Bush.

Ultimately, Bush said it will come down to whichever program he feels most comfortable at, which bodes well for the Hoosiers after that October visit.

"I got a really good feel for (Bloomington), and I feel I could fit in really well there," said Bush.
