Super RB Talks About UM

This talented running back prospect already has a handful of scholarship offers. He talks about the University of Miami and where the Hurricanes rank on his current list of favorites.

When he was eight years old, San Diego running back Reggie Bush made everyone understand that he was going to be an outstanding running back.

"The first game of my career, I played running back," Bush told me. "I finished that game with 544 yards and eight touchdowns. I knew from there that I definitely wanted to be a running back."

The talented runner went for over 2,100 yards and 28 touchdowns as a junior last season, and is now considered one of the top running back prospects on the West Coast.

At 6-feet and 183 pounds, Bush also competes in track and has high hopes this coming season.

"I ran a 10.4 electronically at the state meet and finished third in the state," he said. "Both guys in front of me were seniors. In the 200, I ran a 21.06, which was also third."

Bush, who carries a 3.85 GPA inside the classroom and is still waiting for his test score results, said he had a busy spring talking to college coaches from all over.

"I spoke on the phone with Notre Dame, Washington, Stanford, UCLA, Oregon, Colorado, Texas, Miami, pretty much everyone," he said.

The talented running back has six written scholarship offers.

"Stanford, Washington, UCLA, North Carolina, Colorado, and Texas have all sent one," he said. "The schools I'm most interested in right now are Stanford, Washington, UCLA, Notre Dame, Oregon, Texas, USC, and Colorado."

Bush talked about the Hurricanes.

"I talked to so many coaches that I don't even remember which Miami coach I talked with," he said. "Miami might be a great school and everything, but it's a guarantee that I will stay on the West Coast. I really don't want to go to the East Coast or anything like that."

Bush said he hasn't attended any summer camps because he'd rather stay home and work out with his teammates.

"We have lots of people coming back," he said. "The big goal is to win another title. We've won it back-to-back so I want to do it again this year even though we're everyone's top target."
