Former Georgia Bulldogs junior wide receiver Tommy Bush, who dealt with nagging injuries the majority of his time in Athens, has transferred to the North Texas Mean Green. North Texas plays in C-USA and went 4-6 during the 2020 college football season.
Tommy Bush will look to earn more playing time with the Mean Green. North Texas is looking to replace former star wide receiver Jaelon Darden, who was drafted by Tampa Bay in the 2021 NFL draft.
The 6-foot-5, 195 pound receiver will give North Texas a red zone threat. Tommy Bush joins other Georgia Bulldogs wide receivers in transferring this offseason.
Bush was involved in a hit-and-run car accident in October where he suffered a concussion and lost a tooth. Prior to this incident, Bush was nursing a sports hernia/groin injury. He did not see the field last season and never truly unlocked his potential. He had only recorded one catch during the 2019 season.
The former 4-star recruit is a Texas native and has at least two years of eligibility left in his college career. Now, he’ll be closer to home.
Tommy Bush attended Samuel Clemens High School in Schertz, Texas. Bush entered the NCAA transfer portal in Feb. 2021.
