Crazy part is, I feel like Bush can be just as physical. We now have some CB's that play physically at the line, and have recovery speed to get back into plays down field.
It's a joke that Bakas had this kid rated as 23 prospect in the state. A CB with great feet, is physical, good ball skills and will stick his nose in there and hit. Love what I what I saw.Cripes. And Bakas thinks this kid is overrated... One of the best corner prospects out of SFL in the past few years post Peterson.
Deon is going to be a great asset against bigger receivers. In addition to that he'll physically manhandle smaller guys. With these two we have an amazing future at corner, now it's time to get some bona-fide safeties.His ability to leave his man and go make a play on the ball is as good as I've ever seen from a HS corner. He's as natural of a corner in the way he moves as anyone I've ever seen. If he had elite speed he'd be through the roof, but he's going to be a damn good player for us anyway, I think.
And, by the way, re-watching that SFExpress tryout video really reminded me that Deon Bush is legit. I was starting to think he was DVD part 2 the way folks around here spoke of him being soft and just being an 'athlete'.... DVD never in his life got as physical as Deon got in that vid, and he ran step-for-step with some ballers. I got a lot more excited about his potential at corner after re-watching that.
