Nebraska Cornhuskers Gunning For Second QB Commitment With AJ Bush

With Zack Darlington already enrolled, Nebraska has a quarterback for its 2014 recruiting class. The real question is whether he’ll actually play for the Cornhuskers or not.

The Apopka, FL native suffered two concussions in a two-month span, one requiring him being air-lifted to a nearby hospital during a game. With the Huskers already young at quarterback, can they move forward with a question mark behind Tommy Armstrong, Jr. and Johnny Stanton?

The answer appears to be no.

While Bo Pelini has publicly stated that Nebraska will fully honor Darlington’s scholarship regardless of his eventual medical situation, that doesn’t fill a depth chart.

6-foot-3 210-pound dual-threat quarterback AJ Bush received an offer from the Cornhuskers today and subsequently planned a visit to Lincoln for this weekend.

Bush’s trio of touchdowns in the Georgia 6A Championship Game led the highlight reel for his Norcross High School squad, and his efforts haven’t gone unnoticed.

He holds offers from Kansas State, Cincinnati, Boston College, Marshall and Troy. Norcross isn’t exactly a diamond in the rough when it comes to college football talent, either.

He’s has been working with four wide receivers that will sign with either an FBS or FCS school.

Nebraska’s newest coaching acquisition, secondary coach Charles Warren, will be visiting with Bush this evening. At the rate this relationship is going, the visit to Nebraska may only be about showing off Bush’s new digs.

Not only would Bush’s commitment ensure Darlington the time he needs to recover and get proper clearance if he is able to play, but pulling in a commitment from Georgia is never a bad way to end a recruiting season.
