LB Adds UM Offer

When it comes to talking about the best players in the state of New Jersey, Oradell (NJ) Bergen Catholic standout linebacker Brian Cushing's name usually comes up right away.

With two recent major scholarship offers added to his resume, Cushing's now up to 26.

"I got two big ones just recently," Cushing said. "Miami and Florida State both offered. Florida State actually came by the school and offered me on the spot. Then my coach called me in the other day and said that Miami's linebackers coach, Hargreaves, called to offer me a scholarship."

Cushing, who plans on attending camps at Boston College and Ohio State this summer, said he's still wide open with his college choices. Cushing is high on the Hurricanes.

"Ever since I watched them dominate Nebraska for the title a few years ago then return to play Ohio State the next year, I've liked them," he said. "They play a fast paced defense and it's one that I think I could fit into pretty well."
