LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Quarterback AJ Bush is making a big impression on new Nebraska coach Mike Riley this spring.

With the possible exception of incumbent starter Tommy Armstrong Jr., the 6-foot-4 left-hander has been mentioned more often in the new Nebraska coach’s post-practice comments than any quarterback.

Bush was an under-the-radar prospect. No recruiting service rated him better than a two-star even though he led Norcross High to the 2013 state championship in Georgia’s top division. He was one of the last members in former coach Bo Pelini’s 2014 recruiting class.

Bush said he never seriously considered transferring after Pelini was fired. He said he’s confident Riley and offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf are giving him a fair shot to earn his way onto the game field.
