Rush Adds Another Offer, Talks Future Plans

2017 Northeast Mississippi DT Anthony Rush (6-4, 295) added an offer from a Sun Belt program recently and he updated on where things stand as far as visits are concerned...

"Southern Mississippi just offered me," Rush told 

The offer from the Golden Eagles is the sixth for the talented and versatile defensive line prospect, joining the ones he already had from Bowling GreenMiddle Tennessee StateMississippi StateOhio and UAB.

Rush also took a visit to Alabama for their camp and felt he performed well.

"It went good," Rush said of the trip. "I felt like I did well, but they didn't offer.

"I just want to go to a place to wants me and needs me."

As far as other visits are concerned, Rush doesn't have any scheduled currently, but he's looking at setting up his officials shortly and hopes to take all of them before the end of his sophomore season.

"I was hoping to take one or two officials before my season starts, but it looks like they are all going to be during the season or right after it," Rush noted.

As a freshman last season for the Tigers, Rush totaled 40 tackles, three sacks and nine tackles-for-loss from his three-tech spot.

"I can actually do it all. I'm not really limited to one thing or another," Rush noted. "I can rush the quarterback pretty well and I can stop the run. I enjoy doing both of those because it helps my team.

"I put my heart into every play. I don't take plays off. I've been doing this since I was six, so I just love to play and I play with that passion every chance I get."

Rush has already been hard at work this offseason, getting in work on the field and in the weight room.

"I'm working a lot on my overall technique as well as my speed and explosiveness," Rush said. "I'm running a lot, working on my legs, my get-off and just being the best player I can be."

Rush is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
