Bush to choose between two

Narrowing things down to two schools was tough enough for Hackensack, New Jersey tight end Malcolm Bush. The toughest decision remains, however, and will have to be made in the next couple of weeks.

The 6-foot-3, 211-pound prospect picked up offers from Cincinnati, Iowa, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse and others over the course of the recruiting process.

Back in December he took an official visit to Pitt, and this weekend his officially visited North Carolina. Bush had narrowed things down to those two schools. After visiting UNC, where do things stand?

"It went pretty good. I had fun meeting the players and had a good time with them," he said. I got to see the school's environment and Chapel Hill, so that was pretty cool.

"Pitt is the only other school I could compare it to and they're pretty much dead even right now. I had fun on both visits and both were good experiences."

Bush has good athleticism and projects as a pass-catching tight end at the college level once he bulks up a bit.

"They've both said they'll use me pretty much the same way. There are some small differences but it just comes down to them wanting to get me the ball."

With Signing Day rapidly approaching, can we expect a decision in a couple of days or a couple of weeks?

"I don't know," he said. "It's going to be pretty tough. It's probably going to come down to academics with two schools like these that are so equal to me. Even then, they're both great universities.

"I'm going to talk it over with my coach and with my family. Once I've reached a decision I'll announce it."
