BIO: Junior college transfer who was an All-Conference performer as a senior posting 56/741/8 at receiver while also averaging 15.3 yards on 10 punt returns and 25.1 yards on 20 kick returns, one brought back into the end zone.
POSITIVES: Productive pass catcher with special teams abilities at the next level. Quickly releases off the line, uses his frame to shield away opponents and works back to the quarterback, getting separation from opponents. Does not break stride to make the catch. Solid downfield blocker who displays strength at the point of attack. Explosive kick returner who impacts the game.
NEGATIVES: Does not display soft, consistent hands and takes his eyes off the ball, which leads to drops. Body catcher who consistently lets the ball get inside his frame. Must attack blocking assignments.
ANALYSIS: An improving ball player, Rush lacks the pure size/speed numbers for the next level yet could find a home as a slot receiver and return specialist.
