BIOGRAPHY: Rotated into the starting line-up as a freshman and sophomore, then became the team.s feature runner in .05. Played one-half of football last season before breaking his leg. Had a rod inserted into his tibia during the surgical procedure to repair his leg.
POSITIVES: Big, powerful ball carrier with terrific football instincts. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and makes defenders miss in a small area. Slides through the open creases of the offensive line, has a slashing style and is tough to bring down.
NEGATIVES: Runs with an upright style and is prone to taking a lot of hard hits. Suffered with minor nicks and bruises during his sophomore and junior campaigns. Does not take his conditioning seriously, and tires over the course of the game.
ANALYSIS: A big, strong ball-carrier who also can run with a finesse style, Bush offers great potential for the next level. Durability issues and weight problems will push him further into the draft than most expect. Has the tools to be a productive starting back
