Dual-threat quarterback recruit AJ Bush of Norcross (Ga.) High announced his commitment to Nebraska on Feb. 2, 2014, becoming the 26th known member of NU's 2014 class just days before signing day. Bush had visited Lincoln the same weekend.
A 6-foot-3, 211-pound recruit, Bush chose the Huskers over Boston College, Kansas State, Cincinnati, Georgia State and others.
ESPN describes Bush as a well-sized dual-threat QB with average accuracy, very good mobility and an "ability to break more than one tackle on a play."
“I love watching film. I love preparing," Bush said. "I love sorting out defenses. No doubt in my mind I’ll be prepared when I come on campus.”
Bush joins Apopka, Fla., playcaller Zack Darlington as the second quarterback commit of the class. He is the first member of the 2014 class from Georgia.
According to 247Sports, Bush was primarily recruited by defensive backs coach Charlton Warren -- an Atlanta native with deep Georgia ties -- and offensive coordinator Tim Beck.
The Gwinnett Daily Post reports that Bush completed 121 of 235 passes for 1,795 yards, 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions as a senior, helping the Blue Devils to a second straight Class AAAAAA state championship.
“He’s a great kid and a great player, and did some great things for us," Norcross head coach Keith Maloof said. "He probably started out a little slow because he hadn’t been in our system for four years like some kids, and we were trying to figure him out at the same time.”
