Defensive coordinator Bob Diaco likes tall cornerbacks, and at 6-foot-1, 178-pounds, Deon Bush appears to have caught Notre Dame's attention.
"I've been getting a lot of stuff in the mail from them," Bush said. "In fact, I just got one from them today and I know they requested my transcripts from my counselor.
"I've talked to (Rabasa) about them. He said that it's a good school, and it has a good atmosphere. I like Notre Dame. I don't know much about them, but I know they have a good tradition.
"I saw them play last year," he said. "My brother (Gary) plays wide receiver for Purdue. He's a red-shirt freshman."
In addition to the mail he's receiving from Notre Dame, Bush is receiving recruiting material from just about every program in the country. Over the summer he attended camps at Florida International and Ole Miss, and shortly afterward received verbal offers from both schools.
"I'm really open to everyone right now," he said. "I'm just going to look for the best school for me in terms of playing time, and academics, so I really don't have a favorite school in particular.
"I get a lot of advice from my brother. He tells me to find the best school for me and not to rush into anything. He said to try to get to know the coaches, look at the academics and graduation rates of the players."
Although Bush doesn't currently play cornerback, he feels that he will be his best position in college.
"I play a little receiver, but I play mostly on the defensive side of the ball," he said. "I play safety for my school, because that's where they need me, but I think I can play corner at the next level.
"I've played corner at plenty of combines, and I went to a lot of camps this summer and played a corner."
