If there’s one thing 2016 Inside Linebacker Devin Bush (Pembroke Pines, FL) is fully aware of it’s that the Georgia Bulldogs would love the opportunity to have him on their depth chart.

“They were there for my spring game,” Bush said. “Coach Ekeler came down for it. He gave me a slap in the head, of course. He can’t hold it back. He slapped my head a couple of times. He says if I don’t let him coach me, he’s going to kill me. He and Pruitt are telling me to keep them in mind. They want to make sure I look at the real opportunity they have for me. I could start early and make an impact for their defense.” (Jake Reuse, UGASports.com)

The Bulldogs have been on him for quite some time now, but there are so many hooks in his waters—Auburn, Florida, Michigan, and Alabama to name a fews—t’s tough to gauge just how strong of a hold Jeremy Pruitt has on him right now.

Even so, Georgia won’t give up on the 4-star prospect until it’s clear he’s no longer in striking distance because, if there’s anything that’s still remotely clear about Georgia’s defensive needs, it’s that they would like to add more talent at the inside backer spot—there simply aren’t enough warm bodies to fill the gaping hole that has existed there for better than two seasons and Pruitt isn’t willing to give up on any possibility of procuring a playmaker at that spot.
