The top offensive lineman we saw at the Nike camp in Oregon this past summer was Puyallup (Wash.) Rogers standout Chris Bush. The lineman received two early scholarship offers and recently set up his first official visit.
Bush, 6-5, 280 pounds has a great frame and opened a lot of eyes at the Nike camp. He was somewhat of a sleeper prior to the event but showed good feet and mobility and was dominant in the one on one drills.
On the recruiting front, Bush received early offers from Indiana and Idaho and that still remains the case.
"Both of those schools have called along with Northwestern and Washington State," Bush said. "I have an official visit set to Indiana for (Oct. 7) when they play Illinois and I'm really looking forward to it. I wanted to take that trip during the season so I could check out the school during a game weekend.
"I'm also going to visit Idaho in December but we haven't worked out the exact weekend yet. Both Northwestern and Washington State told me to send in film after my first three games this year and that's what I'm doing. We're 2-1 right now and I've played pretty well. I haven't given up a sack yet and hopefully I can keep that streak going all year long."
The Hoosiers aren't known for recruiting out West too often and Bush was as surprised as anyone when he got the offer from them.
"It was the last day schools could call during the early evaluation period," Bush said. "I was just laying in bed late at night when they called and told me they were offering a scholarship. I guess they saw me while scouting another player and liked what they saw. Indiana could be a good fit for me because I also want to major in Business and they have one of the top Business programs in the nation.
"Right now, I'm just going to wait and see what Washington State and Northwestern think of my tape. It would be nice to have a local offer from Wazzu but if not, that's fine, I have no problem going away to school if that's what is best for me."
