The day after a 24-17 loss to SEC West rivals LSU, Arkansas fans got some good news on the recruiting trail.
Louisiana native Devin C. Bush, the No. 25 cornerback in the country per the 247Sports Composite, announced his commitment to Arkansas on his Twitter account Sunday afternoon.
While Arkansas has looked like one of the worst teams in the SEC this season, first-year head coach Chad Morris is patiently working on bringing in the players that will fit his plans in Fayetteville, and Bush can be a key piece to an Arkansas defense that has allowed 35 points per game this season.
Here is Bush’s announcement:

Chad Morris’ official Twitter account celebrated the commitment as well:

Bush held offers from the likes of Clemson, Auburn, Tennessee, and many other Power Five schools. However, the fact that Morris was able to wrestle Bush away from LSU in his home state is a good sign for Razorback fans.
The Hogs are 2-8, with a road game at Mississippi State next, but patience will be needed in Fayetteville as Morris starts from scratch. So far, the future appears bright, with a top-20 2019 recruiting class as it stands.
