Bush's parents impressed by visit

Defensive back Deon Bush

Four-star defensive back Deon Bush, because of his travel schedule, wasn’t able to make a planned unofficial visit to Auburn on Wednesday. But while he traveled to Oregon to compete with some of the nation’s top prospects in The Opening, his parents made the trip to Auburn anyway.

Garrett and Michelle Bush met with Auburn coaches and toured the campus. Garrett Bush had visited the campus previously with his son. It was Michelle Bush’s first visit.

Garrett Bush said they liked everything they saw.

“We just like the family atmosphere at the school,” he said. “We just wanted to come back and talk to the coaches. My wife didn’t come the first time, so I wanted her to check things out for herself. She was impressed.”

Deon Bush, from Christopher Columbus High School in Miami, is rated the nation’s No. 175 prospect overall and No. 11 safety by 247Sports. His father said Wednesday the top five he named earlier has not changed. It includes Auburn, Alabama, Miami, Florida State and Purdue.

When he will make a decision is one certain.

“There is no timeline,” Garrett Bush said. “I just know that Auburn is one of his top schools.”
