George Rushing has felt the effects from the fluidity of college football coaching changes first-hand, and now has four weeks to decide on a college to attend.
Rushing -- who led all Broward Country wide receivers with 13 touchdowns last season -- decommitted from Louisville on Wednesday after rumors linked Bobby Petrino to the Cardinals' coaching job, replacing Charlie Strong, now at Texas.
“I’m just dealing with it so far,” the Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons product said. It’s been frustrating, but I’ll get through it.”
Rushing, who committed to Louisville in May, has official visits lined up in the coming weeks to Wisconsin on Jan. 17, LSU on Jan. 24, and TCU on Jan. 29-31. He also a list of schools he’s interested in but keeping it to himself for right now.
“I’m just wide open right now,” he said. “I just want to see who’s interested in me and just go from there.
“I just want to go to the best situation.”
As for staying close to home and attending the University of Miami, Rushing said he “last time I talked to UM was a while ago.”
However, Rushing said UM offensive coordinator James Coley reached out to his coach in December before winter break.
“I don’t know anything about it,” Rushing said regarding the talk. “I don’t know my status with [UM] right now.”
For Rushing, an underrated three-star prospect by multiple media outlets, finding some sort of clarity since having so much of it before Strong’s departure to Austin, Texas might take all the time he has left.
“Unless I just go somewhere and absolutely love it, my timeline [to make a final decision ends on] National Signing Day,” he said.
