A late push by the Texas Longhorns with Schertz Clemens wide receiver Tommy Bush fell short early Friday evening when the 2018 Under Armour All-American announced that the Baylor Bears will receive his final official visit:
The 6’5, 191-pounder saw his recruitment take off last spring after testing well at a Nike camp and was high on the ‘Horns after receiving an offer that nonetheless didn’t come until the middle of June. However, after Texas picked up commitments from Brennan Eagles and Al’vonte Woodard, communication with Bush died down.
As a result, the consensus four-star prospect started looking elsewhere, taking official visits to Michigan State, Nebraska, Georgia, and Ole Miss. Baylor was also a contender during that stretch.
Ultimately, when the staff decided it had room to take one or two more wide receivers in the 2018 recruiting class, it was too little, too late, though Bush considered taking an official visit to Texas until announcing his decision on Friday.
With Bush now out of the mix, the ‘Horns will attempt to close with Yoakum’s Joshua Moore, who is a virtual lock to join the class at this time, and New Orleans (La.) McDonogh 35 product Lawrence Keys III. Texas was able to secure a visit from Keys in January, but he’s still considered a Notre Dame lean ahead of his pending decision.
