Huskers Out of the Running for 4-Star WR Tommy Bush

January 10, 2018

One thing is for certain as we head down the stretch with 2018 Nebraska recruiting class. There will be twists and turns, not all of them will be positive. Wide receiver has been a huge need all cycle long and while Scott Frost and his staff have done a good job filling the need, one player in particular was still of interest that was being recruited by the previous staff.

4-star Tommy Bush‍ is a rangy wideout (6-5, 187) with track speed, which has made him a very coveted prospect this recruiting cycle. He took an official visit to Nebraska during the season for the Wisconsin game and had a great relationship with former receiver coach Keith Williams. He has had good contact with the current staff as well, getting an in-home visit from offensive coordinator and wide receiver coach Troy Walters.

However, it was not enough to keep Bush’s interest. He informed me via text on Wednesday that Nebraska is no longer in the running for him. He also said that he informed the staff of his decision.

As I outlined in my piece yesterday predicting the rest of the class, there are a lot of receivers still on the board for Nebraska to round out the class. Some of those prospects are 4-star Solomon Enis‍, 4-star Andre Hunt‍, 4-star John Jackson‍, 3-star Chris Olave‍, 3-star Geordon Porter‍, 3-star Dominick Watt‍, and junior college prospect Mike Williams‍.

The Huskers already have Justin McGriff, Katerian Legrone and Jaron Woodyard signed, with Woodyard and McGriff being early enrollees. The position is not in the tough spot it was in back when Joshua Moore left the class. Bush is a terrific prospect and will likely have a very good college career.
