Miami senior S Deon Bush is "a versatile athlete who simply needs to show more consistency in his senior season to ensure he’ll be one of the more coveted free safeties on teams’ draft boards," wrote ESPN's David Hale.
Bush finally broke out in 2014, recording 53 tackles, two interceptions and five forced fumbles. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Bush is a former ESPN 150 prospect. He's struggled staying healthy over the past few years, so draftniks will want to monitor his durability this fall. May 18 - 10:08 PM

Miami sophomore S Deon Bush has been medically cleared to play, but his status for the school's opener is uncertain.

Bush suffered a sports hernia in June which caused him to miss time. "I don’t know. It’s up in the air right now. He’s cleared to play, so it’s just a function of how comfortable he feels," Al Golden said. The Canes open against FAU on Friday night.

Miami starting freshman S Deon Bush will likely miss Saturday's game against Virginia with a stinger suffered last week.
