Notre Dame Football Recruiting

Frost Gets Going Quickly

December 6, 2017

Scott Frost wasn’t going to leave Central Florida before his team played in the American Athletic Conference Championship Game, but he wasn’t wasting any time once he was announced as Nebraska’s new head coach.

Frost signed a memorandum of understanding with his alma mater on Monday, Nov. 27th, but while he was considered the favorite to take over the Cornhuskers’ position, news didn’t officially begin leaking until UCF was wrapping up its AAC title win over Memphis on Saturday, which was unfortunate.

But by the time of his introductory press conference in Lincoln one day later, Frost was already turning his focus to recruiting for Nebraska, which included an immediate pitch to one of Notre Dame’s top targets, Texas wide receiver Tommy Bush.

“He actually called Tommy right after his press conference,” Bush’s father, Tommy Bush Sr., said. “They touched base and he re-offered him, told him he was going to re-offer him and he was one of the top guys he was looking at. He also had a Central Florida offer as well.

In fact, Bush’s offer from Central Florida was one of his earliest offers, but it kind of fell off as Bush’s profile exploded around the time he excelled at The Opening earlier this year.

The Nebraska staff will be in Texas today. After checking on top Cornhusker commit Josh Moore in Yoakum, Nebraska will head out to visit with Bush.

Bush already took an official to Nebraska during the fall as well as one to Michigan State. He heads to Georgia this weekend while Notre Dame is one of a handful of other schools hoping to land on his official visit list in January.
