One of the state’s top wide receivers is headed to Athen, as Schertz Clemens standout Tommy Bush committed the Georgia Bulldogs on Wednesday, announcing his pledged on ESPN2 with a crying baby in a UGA shirt.
Maybe she’s a Longhorns fan.
Bush chose Georgia over Texas and Baylor, among others. Michigan State and Ole Miss also received official visits.
A big-time testing performance at a Nike camp last summer launched Bush’s recruitment, but the Longhorns waited until the middle of June to offer, then fell out of contact during the fall after Brennan Eagles and Al’vonte Woodard committed during the summer.
In the final weeks of the process, the Texas coaches once again established communication with Bush and attempted to make up for ignoring Bush for so long. To the extent that the staff was able to secure an in-home visit and an unofficial visit after Bush’s final official visit to Baylor last weekend, it worked.
However, it wasn’t enough in the end.
A consensus four-star prospect, Bush is ranked as the No. 196 player nationally, the No. 37 wide receiver, and the No. 23 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Texas did manage to secure a strong wide receiver class, though there’s not a pure slot receiver — Eagles, Woodard and late commit Joshua Moore are all ranked among the state’s top 11 prospects.
