Bush, a former four-star prospect as a defensive back, spent three seasons playing for the Razorbacks before entering the transfer portal on Jan. 3.

He appeared in three games this season, making one tackle against Rice on Sept. 4. He has appeared in nine games over his three seasons.

Bush (6-foot, 200 pounds) has three years of eligibility remaining after redshirting as a freshman and earning a year of extra eligibility because of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

The former Edna Karr standout announced his commitment to Southern on Monday before changing course on Thursday.

In high school, he was rated as the No. 28 defensive back prospect in the nation after helping Edna Karr win three straight state titles. He chose Arkansas over Auburn, Florida, LSU, Clemson and Oklahoma, among others.

His decision means Bush will face Southern in the Bayou Classic next season and beyond.

Joined by No. 2 D-Lineman in Juco

Bush will be joined by a familiar face in junior college defensive lineman Myron Green.

The tandem played on Edna Karr's 2018 Class 4A state championship team and was Green's first season playing football.

Green attended Coffeyville Community College to play basketball, but he walked on to the school's football team as well.

The 6-5, 317-pound defensive lineman committed to Memphis after compiling 49 tackles, including five sacks in his only season at Coffeyville. Green never signed with the Tigers but instead wound up at Itawamba Community College in Mississippi.

After just a few seasons playing football, Green has garnered a three-star ranking and is listed as the No. 2 JUCO defensive lineman, according to 247Sports.

Green announced his commitmenton Twitter, only two hours after his former teammate.
