"I could probably say I can name a top eight now," Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic linebacker Brian Cushing said. "Miami, USC, Virginia, Penn State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Rutgers, and Maryland. All of them have offered."
"I'm considering maybe two or three others outside of those eight. Boston College and maybe Stanford. Probably those two."
"My only official visits I have set up are Miami and USC. Miami is Dec. 10 and USC is Dec. 17."
"I really don't think I have any favorites."
"I might go to the Rutgers-Michigan State game."
The 6-foot-4 and 216 pound Cushing made 120 tackles including 10 sacks during his junior season. He also intercepted seven passes. Cushing is the No. 2 overall prospect in the state of New Jersey in the Rivals.com player rankings and the country's No. 4 outside linebacker prospect.
