nearing a decision.
"He's kind of getting tired of the whole recruiting
process," the elder Bush said. "He told me the other day he was kind of getting
tired of all the phone calls and constantly talking about everything. Somebody
got his cell phone and started calling him on it, and that kind of bothered him.
He may be looking to make that decision sooner than he expected."
Bush, a member of the
Rivals100 team and the No. 3
athlete in the nation, is the Bluegrass State's "Mr. Football" and a leading
candidate for the top award in basketball as well. He's been playing in a
holiday tournament in Florida this week.
His father said there have been no new official visits
scheduled in the last two weeks. He'll be heading to Ohio State on Jan. 10.
After that, it remains to be seen if he'll make the Tennessee (1/17) and Wake
Forest (1/24) visits. Auburn was a possibility until Tigers offensive coordinator Bob Petrino was hired as
the new Louisville head coach when John L. Smith left for Michigan State.
So it appears it could be a showdown between the
Buckeyes and Cardinals for the gifted athlete, who finished his senior season
with 2,891 yards passing and 35 touchdowns. He also rushed for 911 yards and
seven touchdowns. As a junior, his primary position was wide receiver, catching
64 passes for 1,090 yards and 17 touchdowns.
