Kudos to OC Matt Limegrover for bringing in one of the top offensive linemen prospects in the area to NIU.
"I really like Coach Limegrover, who recruited me and will be my position coach," Bush said of his reasoning for picking NIU. "I also like that Northern is close to home."
All of NIU's commitments so far have been pretty under the radar, but this player definitely has the guru rankings going for him. Wouldn't you think that the #1 OL recruit out of Wisconsin would end up going to the Badgers? We did beat out fellow MAC school Western Michigan for Bush though. Normally I don't enjoy watching offensive line highlights, but Bush's is one to watch. He's a mauler.
Anytime you can get one of the top 10-15 players out of Wisconsin, it's a good thing. Plus offensive line was one of our weaknesses last year. Rivals projects him as an guard in college as he is extremely athletic for his size. His high school has more left tackle pulls than I've ever seen.
