Rivals.com ranks Wolfley as the No. 5 overall prospect in the state following a senior season with MHS in which he was named All-State Special Honorable Mention.

Bush, a 5-foot-8, 170-pound running back, hails from New Orleans. In his senior season with Landry-Walker High School, Bush racked up more than 2,500 all-purpose yards and 29 touchdowns on the way to winning the 5A state championship.

Bush is a 3-star athlete who ESPN rates as the No. 67 athlete nationally with offers from schools like Louisville, Texas Tech and Arkansas.
