Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel will bring at least five days a week. The rundown for Monday offers an update on 4-star wide receiver Tommy Bush, a quick check on just how committed 5-star outside linebacker Nolan Smith is to UGA and an overview of the prospects who were in town over the weekend on their official visits.

The flight ended up being delayed 2½ hours. It was 9 p.m. before he finally made it home to Schertz, Texas.
That repeats the chorus from his third official visit, the one he took to UGA. Bush and his family were thankful for the “above and beyond” treatment they received while his return flights were delayed multiple times.
He also experienced travel delays on his official visit to Michigan State.
Bush took some time during the weekend to update DawgNation on where things stand with his recruitment. To start with, it seems as if he has made a change in the timing and manner of his commitment.
He said he had hoped to commit to a college before National Signing Day on Feb. 7. That still might be the case, but he said he won’t make a public pronouncement when he does.
Texas hopped into the picture for Bush last week, but the wide receiver said nothing had changed regarding with the way he views UGA.
“No, sir, they are still good with me,” Bush told DawgNation

The thinking is he will use another official visit before he shares his final decision in a ceremony airing on ESPN from Samuel Clemens High School in Schertz. That’s not too far from San Antonio.
That is close to both Baylor (175 miles approximately) and Texas (65 miles approximately). He also has taken official visits to Nebraska and Michigan State.
That trip to Lincoln, Neb., was to see the Mike Riley staff, and the 6-foot-5 standout has since shucked that program from his list of contenders. Baylor and Michigan State still seem to be the other main contenders for Bush.

Despite the scant space in the UGA class, it sounds as if Bush is still very much in the picture with UGA.
Bush said Georgia offensive coordinator Jim Chaney has spoken to him twice recently. Chaney even paid him a visit last week.
“He’s a low-pressure recruiter,” Bush said. “My dad says maybe [he’s using] reverse psychology.”
He also used the term “great people” to describe how he feels about his connection with UGA.
