Bush considering visiting Florida Gators and others in January

ORLANDO- New Florida Gators head coach Dan Mullen has already received two receiver transfers since he arrived in Gainesville but he’s not done trying to rebuild the position.

Mullen and company are trying to add size at the position and that makes receiver Tommy Bush (6-5, 191, Schertz, TX. Samuel Clemens) a high priority.

Bush was offered by Florida in December but his relationship with Mullen and his staff date back to Mississippi State when Mullen offered him there.

“Mississippi State’s staff. I’ve been comfortable with them,” Bush said on why he’s thinking about visiting Florida. “So when they moved to Florida, we already liked Florida, but we’re considering it the most right now for that.”

Mullen and receivers coach Billy Gonzales have made sure to let Bush and his family know that the Gators need.

“Same thing as they said at Mississippi State,” Bush said on Florida’s message to him. “The only thing that changed was schools. I’m still a priority for them. They still want me there.”

Bush is a big receiver but also a guy that has good speed and that’s why Mullen is telling him that he can be a difference maker for the Gators in Gainesville.

“Just a big receiver that stretches the field,” he said on how Mullen wants to use him. “He’s been comfortable talking to me and everything as a priority, so he’s been in contact with me for that.”

Heading into January, Bush says he has several teams vying to get his last official visits before he makes a decision.
“Florida, Notre Dame, Ole Miss and Baylor,” Bush said on schools he’s considering for an official visit. “I have two visits left.”

After Bush makes those two visits, the receiver says that he will likely make a final decision on his college choice.
“We’re going to announce Mid-January,” Bush said on when he wants to announce. “We were trying to announce after the Under Armour game but we decided to take a little bit more time. We’re gonna commit before signing day.”

INSIDERS TAKE: Michigan State is considered the favorite with Georgia also lurking in the picture after he visited them in December. Right now the Gators chances are slim but a visit could change that.
