Hackensack, N.J. tight end Malcolm Bush made his way to Pittsburgh over the weekend. The 6-foot-3, 211-pounder caught up with Rivals to discuss the trip and what is next.
"It was a nice trip, I had a lot of fun with the coaches and players," he said. "I got there around three on Friday and basically spent time with Coach Wannstedt and Coach Angelichio. I went around the campus on a tour, watched a basketball game and chilled with the players."
Bush was hosted on the trip by Oderick Turner.
"He's cool, being from Teaneck I'm familiar with him since we play them regularly in a Thanksgiving game," he said. "Basically, he let me know the coaches there want me bad and if they want you bad they'll take care of you once you get there. He also said he loved it."
Aside from hanging out with Turner, Bush took in a basketball game.
"It was cool, but it was kind of a blowout," he stated. "They won by 35-points. The semester ended, but the atmosphere was good. It was fun chilling with Coach Wannstedt."
Also on the trip, Bush attended a practice.
"The practice was tough, there was good competition out there," he said. "A lot of players were stepping up making hits."
Before heading out earlier today, Bush met with a few of the coaches one more time.
"Both Coach Wannstedt and Coach Angelichio were good guys," he said. "They let me know how I fit in the program and how bad they want me to come here and their vision for where they want the program to be. I think I do fit in well there.
"As for Coach Wannstedt, he's a regular guy. He wants to look out for you as a person. He's easy to talk to too."
The No. 17 prospect in New Jersey plans to take a second visit on January 16th to North Carolina. Does he have any other trips in mind?
"That's the only one I know of as of now," he said. "I am waiting on a few other schools to possible send offers, as of now those are the two I'm looking at."
