CB Bush lists top 5

Devin bush 140712 1
Class of 2016 linebacker Devin Bush of Pembroke Pines (Fla.) Flanagan has a top five and it's UCLA, Georgia, Duke, Tennessee and Miami.
The Bruins, who offered during Bush's spring break, are the current leader.
"I feel like UCLA is a really good program," said Bush, who stands at 6-foot, 206 pounds. "(Bruins linebackers coach Jeff Ulbrich) has been in the pros, so I feel like he can teach me the way, improving my game and making me a better player."
Bush said he didn't want to give the Bruins much of a lead over his second favorite school, Georgia.
"Georgia is also in the picture," Bush said. "I really like their school. I went there my freshman year and I feel like (Jeremy Pruitt) is a really good defensive coordinator. And I feel like (linebackers coach Mike Ekeler) can make me a better player also."
Duke is high on Bush's list because of its academics and family ties.
"Duke has a great education," Bush said. "My cousin played there and he tells me it's a really great school. And it's in the ACC and I feel like it's a really good program for me."
Tennessee is another school in the mix.
"I like Tennessee because it's a program that's been around and it has a nice campus and nice coaches," Bush said. "It's a good program. They came to see me play during the school year and I heard back from them a few weeks later. The pulled the trigger and offered."
The last school on Bush's list, Miami, is the school he's most familiar with.
"I've been there more than any other college," he said. (Linebackers coach Micheal Barrow) played in the league a long time. He played next to Patrick Willis and all those other good players and he knows the game really well. He's a student of the game and a teacher of the game.
"Coach Al Golden - we have a good relationship. We talk sometimes. (Secondary coach Paul Williams recruited me. He's really good and I feel like I can grow as a person at the University of Miami."
Miami is the only school he's visited this offseason, which is one of the many advantages the hometown Canes hold.
"It's mostly in the backyard so I can get their faster," he said. "My parents would be able to watch me play. I could get a great medical education - I want to be a chiropractor. I feel like they have the right degree and the right major and it feels like home because it's Miami. I feel like I'd be close to family, so any problems I run into, I'm good.
"And a couple of my friends committed there, Sam Bruce and Jordan Scarlett and I feel like we could build something over there if I was to go there."
Bush, who has no further offseason visits planned, said he will make his decision following his senior year on national TV during the Under Armour All-American Game.
The son of former Florida State and NFL safety Devin Bush Sr. finished his sophomore season with 114 tackles, 3 interceptions, 4 forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks.
