One of the several talented prospects at Miami (Fla.) Pace high school, running back/athlete Adrian Bushell has made a cross-country move.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder, who had been living with his grandmother in Miami, has moved in with his mother who lives in DeSoto, Texas. Now, Bushell will line up for the talented DeSoto team who already has a host of Division I prospects such as Cyrus Gray, Tony Jerod, and R.J. Young.
Coach Dave Meadows hasn't seen Bushell's film yet, but has had a chance to watch him run with DeSoto's track team.

"We've seen him run and workout and he's got all the intangibles," Meadows said about Bushell said. "I'm going to be completely shocked if he's not a good player here."
Bushell is currently running in several events with DeSoto's track team including relay events and as a hurdler.
With his size and speed, there are plenty of spots that are options for Bushell according to Meadows.
"We're going to use him at corner to start with and we look for him to be a shut down guy there," Meadows said. "Offensively, we're open-minded about where to play him. We may play Cyrus (Gray) at quarterback again and we could put Adrian as a running back next to him or as one of the receivers. We could move him around like we did with Cyrus."
Recruiting hasn't come up yet, but Meadows says he's getting his information out quickly like he does with all of his other prospects.
"If he has any offers, he hasn't told me," Meadows said. "We don't have any film to send out. They're all interested in him, but they want to see him in the spring."
