University of Arkansas corner back commitment Devin Bush signed with the Razorbacks on Friday, the last day of the early signing period.

He committed to Arkansas on Nov. 11 during an official visit to Fayetteville, but appeared to be waiting to sign in February.

Bush, 6-0, 187 pounds, of New Orleans Edna Karr had reported scholarship offers from Arkansas, Virginia, LSU, Oklahoma, Clemson, Florida, Tennessee, Auburn, Georgia, Florida State and others. He initially planned to enroll in January but will wait to report in the summer.

ESPN rates him a 4-star prospect, No. 16 cornerback and No. 219 overall prospect in the nation. Cornerbacks coach Mark Smith and safeties coach Ron Cooper recruited Bush.

National recruiting analyst Tom Lemming of CBS Sports Network rates Arkansas' class No. 15 nationally and Bush a 4-star-plus prospect.

"I've seen Devin since his freshman year because I go by Karr High School every year," Lemming said. "He's a cover corner. He's got length and he's also got the confidence I like to see in a ball player. Very impressed with him on film. He's another guy I think will play right away as a true freshman."

Bush is the third defensive back to sign with Arkansas, while cornerback Adonis Otey of Blackman High School in Murfreesboro, Tenn., is committed to the Hogs, but plans to sign in February.

Bush became Arkansas' No. 21 signee for the 2019 class.
