Biography: Two-year starter at guard.
Positives: Nice-sized, small-area blocker with outstanding vision. Jolts defenders at the point of attack and effectively places his hands into opponents, working them throughout the action. Sees the blitz or picks up stunts thrown by opponents. Competitive and works hard until the whistle blows. Strong and does not give up an inch to opponents.
Negatives: Bends at the waist and lacks balance. Ineffective in space and does not display top footwork. Struggles blocking in motion. Missed much of his senior season with a knee injury.
Analysis: Rush was a free-agent prospect heading into last season and started strong before being sidelined with a knee injury. He offers potential as an inexpensive utility blocker; must prove he's at full strength in camp this summer.
