Texas Cornerback Likes Michigan Tradition
It's Bushell's defensive skills have caught the attention of the staff at Michigan, who have offered Bushell a scholarship. At 5-11, 180 pounds and with 4.39 sec. 40 speed, Adrian has the ideal size and make-up for a top-notch cornerback.
"Offensively, I'm explosive, elusive, and I can also make something out of nothing. Defensively, I have very good awareness and I'm good at tackling. I think my strengthsare my jamming ability and make-up speed. I try to play real physical like Sean Taylor. I'd like to work and improve in my zone coverage."
This hard-hitting and physical playing style is something highly coveted by defensive coordinator Ron English, and ‘new' U-M DB coach Vance Bedford who also recruits the Dallas area for Michigan – both of whom who preach defense that is fast, aggressive, and punishing. In turn, Michigan has caught Adrian's eye as well. "I watched several Michigan games last season and I like how they play."
Although Bushell is still trying to determine his summer workout schedule, he is planning on visiting Michigan, Florida, and Texas Tech. "I want to be patient and take some official visits to some of the schools for their big games. I want to tour the campus and see the game day environment for the Notre Dame or Ohio State games."
Hailing from the south, Bushell says that the weather is not an obstacle. "I'm looking for a school that can give me a good education and has good academic support. My mom is real strict with that. She tells me that I can't base the decision just on football, but on what it will help me with achieve during life after football. I'm also going to be interested in schools that offer early playing time."
The depth chart at cornerback for Michigan is certainly an attraction to prospects with the skill and work ethic to make early contributions. Bushell claims no favorites but stated, "Michigan, Florida, and Texas Tech (all of which have offered him) stand out … and Cal, West Virginia and Alabama."
Adrian did offer some interesting insight about what he liked about Michigan. "Michigan is like THE tradition. They have a really good winning tradition and I just want to be part of it …"
GBW will keep you updated on Adrian throughout the recruiting season.
