Name: Peter Bush
Weight: 220 lbs.
High school: Newport Beach (CA) Corona del Mar
Position: Running back
Class: Fifth year senior
Jersey number: #45
Last year: I ranked Bush #75 and said he would be a backup tight end (LINK). He played special teams in all thirteen games and made 1 tackle.
TTB Rating: N/A
Bush has had quite the journey through the football world. A high school quarterback, he played linebacker initially before moving to fullback to tight end to running back. The switch to running back in 2019 was mostly because the team got rid of the fullback position, but Bush has never really been in the discussion at running back, even when there was a slew of injuries in the spring.
Nothing much should change this year. Bush will probably play special teams, and the addition of Chris Evans – who missed the 2019 season due to suspension – will keep Bush tethered to the bench when the offense is on the field. Special teams should remain Bush’s best opportunity to make his mark.
Prediction: Backup running back, special teamer
