Irish offer Seminole legacy

Florida State legacy Devin Bush Jr. of Pembroke Pines (Fla.) Flanagan touts a lengthy offer list, and Notre Dame is the latest program to join the mix. Bush explains the appeal of an Irish offer and dishes on the details of his recruitment.

On Tuesday, Notre Dame offered three-star inside linebacker Devin Bush Jr. of Pembroke Pines (Fla.) Flanagan.

“I like all the tradition behind Notre Dame,” Bush said. “They’re a high-powered team with a lot of great athletes. They play great teams every year, how could you not want to be part of that tradition?”

Bush’s father, Devin Bush Sr., played safety for Florida State and was a first round NFL draft pick for the Atlanta Falcons in 1995.

“Schools like me within their defensive scheme more than an inside outside linebacker thing,” Bush said. “But most like me at inside.”

Bush has yet to narrow his list offer list of 30-plus schools, but he’s in the process of contemplating which programs will get official visits.

“It’s hard to pick, honestly,” Bush said. “There are a lot of schools coming after me right now. I’m considering a bunch of schools for official visits and I haven’t decided on any of them for sure, but I’m thinking about Auburn, Georgia, Alabama, and schools like that.

“I’d like to visit Notre Dame, but I just have to talk to their coaches to figure out when and that type of thing.”

Bush will announce his commitment at the Under Armour All-America Game next January.

“The comfortability factor will be the biggest thing,” Bush said. “I want to feel at home and feel welcome. I want to play for a great defensive coordinator and in a solid conference. I want to compete for the national championship and go to big bowl games.”

Bush is a three-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 16 inside linebacker in the Class of 2016.
