3-star WR Tommy Bush still waiting for Texas to show significant interest

The fast-rising receiver’s recruitment is beginning to take off, but the Longhorns are yet to jump into the mix with an offer.

Some of the nation’s most prominent programs are in pursuit of three-star Schertz Clemons wide receiver Tommy Bush.

Among his 31 offers are Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Oklahoma, Oregon, Notre Dame, Texas A&M and TCU, just to name a few. Alabama, Mississippi State, Texas A&M and Virginia Tech have all offered in the last week, alone.

Tom Herman and Texas are yet to do so, however.

In fact, Texas is among just three major in-state schools yet to offer the fast-rising recruit, along with Texas Tech and UTEP, but Bush still has significant interest in the ‘Horns.

“Still really good,” Bush said of his interest in Texas. “But still awaiting them to even say they are interested. Other schools have offered and are already in constant contact.”

Living just outside of San Antonio, Bush was able to watch Texas in person twice last season, and was among the multitudes to travel to Austin over the weekend for the Longhorns junior day.

“It was exciting to see all the players in one place at the same time, mostly from Texas,” Bush said. “Just knowing that Tom Herman is investing so much into the program such as new facilities, etc … Great visit.”

While in Austin, Bush was able to spend some time with former national championship quarterback Vince Young, whom he jokes is “big,” as well as wide receivers coach Drew Mehringer and recruiting coordinator and cornerbacks coach Jason Washington.

“We had small talk and I saw the upgrades in the facilities,” Bush said of his time with the staff. “Really liked the atmosphere and the family care.”

If Texas were to extend an offer and begin showing significant interest in the high-upside prospect just a few miles south of Austin, it’s safe to say the Longhorns will emerge as a likely landing spot. For now, though, Bush says Michigan State, Baylor, TCU, Oregon, Nebraska and Colorado State are the schools coming at him the hardest.

At 6’4.5, 187 pounds with a 4.47 40-yard-dash, Bush ranks as the No 353 player in the nation, No. 57 wide receiver and the No. 44 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.
