    Oradell (NJ)
    Bergen Catholic
    Inside linebacker

    Height: 6-foot-3
    Weight: 225 pounds
    40-yard dash: 4.5 seconds

    Bio Notes: Cushing was named all-county, all-North Jersey and all-state as a junior.

    top schools right now are Stanford, BC, Miami, tOSU, USC and VA Tech

    Originally he wanted to go to scUM but they apparantly have turned him off because they offered another NJ LB instead of him.

    He will visit tOSU this summer.

    scUM has now offered 3 LB's before Cushing. Reynolds (no brainer), Logan (reach IMO that was offered to solidify McKinney's commitment), and this kid from NJ now. Looks like LLLoyd blew it. That's a shame.

    the latest Rivals update also makes it seem that tOSU has a real shot at Cushing- he will camp at tOSU and BC this summer

    he also is interested in making an early decision

    this is the kid that LLoyd blew off Cushing for (offering him instead of Brian)

    Cushing is up to 19 offers- he lists his current top 5 as FSU, Stanford, BC, Ohio State and USC. Pretty impressive for tOSU to make his top 5 since we haven't offered yet. Maybe an offer comes when he visits tOSU camp this summer??

    the latest Insiders update reports that Cushing is up to 26 offers and was just offered by FSU and Cryami

    He still states he will camp at BC and tOSU this summer- you have to assume he is a good candidate for an offer when he attends camp- tOSU has apparantly visited his school recently

    In a Rivals update Cushing lists a top 8 and Ohio State is not in it. That may change with an offer but you wonder if it will be too late if and when that offer comes?

    It also does not appear he is camping at tOSU this summer. The article only mentioned BC- he was originally camping at BC and tOSU

    maybe he didn't feel like he needed to prove himself to tOSU (considering 28 other schools didn't need that reaffirmation before they offered)???

    according to Insiders Brian Cushing was just offered by tOSU and USC

    that is 33 offers for Cushing- Coach Hazell offered in person at Brian's school

    He plans on keeping his original plans of visiting tOSU this summer

    Great news, 86!! This kid's numbers are unreal and his video is excellent. Nice to know we're still in the thick of things despite offering him a little later than a lot of schools. It will be interesting to see how well Hazell does in the east.

    According to the latest Rivals upate 3/4 of the schools recruiting Cushing are looking at him as a LB and that's the position he feels like he'll play in college(Until tomorrow and he'll want to play TE :wink2: ) He hopes to have his favorites list narrowed down to 5 before the season starts.

    There have been a lot of stories on Brian Cushing recently. In an arrticle on Huskers Illustrated, Cushing stated that he would definitely visit Miami and USC, and that he was also seriously considering Ohio State and a few other schools.

    It appears that Cushing was on the same trip to VA with Monroe. They are now in his top 3 with Miami and USC. But he still plans on going to camp with tOSU.

    Brian Cushing's school, Bergen Catholic, took 1st place at the Rutgers annual 7 on 7 camp. Cushing reportedly performed quite well.
