DeSoto's Diamond

After moving from Florida to Texas in between his junior and season seasons of high school, ATH Adrian Bushell fell off the recruiting map of several schools. Over the past few weeks there has been a complete 180. Bushell now holds 3 big-time official offers and Texas Tech is in the hunt for this elite prospect.

Adrian Bushell has made a big splash on the recruiting scene.

After playing his junior season in Miami, Florida and then moving to De Soto, TX, he fell off the radar of several schools.

Now that college coaches have had a chance to take a look at the 5'11, 178 pound prospect throughout the spring, attention has really begun to pick up for the versatile athlete with sub 4.4 speed.

After sitting on zero offers a month ago, Bushell now has 3 huge offers in hand.

"I currently have official offers from Florida, Texas Tech, and Michigan.  There are a few other schools that have told me they are going to offer, but those are the ones that are official."

When asked what he liked about each school he currently has offers from, Adrian offered up the following.

Florida: "At Florida I have a good chance of playing early on defense.  They are recruiting me as a defensive back and they are low on corners."

Texas Tech: "I like Tech because they want me to play offense.  The coaches told me I could play either running back or receiver depending on where I fit in best."

Michigan: "I liked Michigan growing up, and it would be cool to be able to play for a team I have been following for so long."

Adrian plans on taking all of his official visits before making a decision on where to spend his collegiate years.  He plans on hitting the road after the season gets underway to make sure he gets a good feel for each university.

"I'll probably wait and take my official visits during the season so I can take in the entire atmosphere of each school," said Bushell.  "I want to get a feel for what game day will be like at each school."

Bushell wouldn't mind staying close to home, but it won't be a very big factor in his decision.

"Honestly, it doesn't matter too much how far away I go to school.  I just want to go somewhere that I will get a chance to make an impact early on."

With the ability to play several positions, Adrian might very well get that opportunity.
