Bush visits the Jackets

This past weekend the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets hosted a number of prospects. Amongst those on campus was Miami (Fla.) Columbus defensive back Deon Bush.
"I got to view Atlanta a little bit," Bush said. "I went to practices and met with the coaches. It is alright up there. I guess it is cool up there."
Bush arrived in Atlanta on Friday and departed Monday night. He visited Georgia Tech on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Friday and Saturday were spent watching practice and meeting the coaches while Sunday was an opportunity to spend time with some of the current players.
During his time with the coaching staff, he had an opportunity to speak one-on-one with head coach Paul Johnson.
"He said that they like my ability to play cornerback," Bush said. "They said I have a lot of range like a safety but the athletic ability to be a cornerback. They like how I can cover as a corner. He said that is what they really like about me. He also said, like every college program says, that he would like me to come there and make his program better."
The Jackets are interested in Bush as a cornerback. In addition to talking to Johnson, he also spoke to his prospective position coach, Charles Kelly, as well as defensive coordinator Al Groh.
"They were just basically telling me that they want me to come there and play corner," Bush said. "Basically it was just them telling me that I am number one on their board."
In recent months, Bush has visited Florida and Miami in addition to Georgia Tech. He talked about where his most recent visit stacks up compared to the two in-state trips he has taken.
"It was good, it had a nice city surrounding it," Bush said. "I don't think their program is the same level as Florida and Miami, but it is a nice place to be at."
At this time, Bush is hoping to visit LSU next weekend but he isn't sure if that trip will occur. If he doesn't make it to Baton Rouge, he is likely to visit the University of Florida for their spring game.
With over 20 offers to his name, is Bush any closer to narrowing things down?
"I am basically narrowing it down right now," Bush said. "I am not complete with my narrowing it down, but I am trying to get it down to at least five right now. I am not sure who it will be right now that makes that list."
The 6-foot-1, 177-pound defender knows what he wants in his future college home.
"I just want a good program where I can get a chance to prove myself and get on the field early," Bush said. "I want a school that graduates their players."
Bush is a part of the East Squad in the 2012 U.S. Army All-America Game.
