"Yea I've got a couple [of scholarship offers]," said Bussey. "Illinois and Kent State [have offered]." Schools like Duke, Stanford, Kansas State, and Michigan State are very much interested, but have yet to offer Bussey.
A quarterback at Washington (D.C.) Dunbar, Bussey's athletic ability makes him a viable option also at wide out or in the secondary.
"Certain schools it's for quarterback and certain schools it's as an athlete – probably safety," said Bussey. "Michigan State, Duke, and Stanford are recruiting me as a quarterback. All the rest are for athlete right now. Illinois offered me as an athlete at first, but now they want me as a quarterback, Kent State offered me as a quarterback."
Bussey, who says position isn't a factor, has already developed a list of a favorites.
"I got a top five I guess – Duke, Stanford, Michigan State, Vanderbilt, and UNC," said Bussey. "All those schools offer good athletics and good academics. And they all are interested in me, making me interested in them."
This spring Bussey has unofficially visited Maryland, thus far. He plans to include camps at Duke and Michigan State among his summer travels.
As a junior, Bussey quarterbacked Dunbar to a 9-2 record and the D.C. Interscholastic Athletic Association Title. On the year, he completed 125-of-218 passes (57%) for 2,543 yards, 37 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. He also rushed for four touchdowns.
