Recruiting: Bussey grabs flashy Rivals rating
Sam McKewon Omaha World-Herald

Nebraska’s 2015 recruiting class has another four-star prospect attached to it.

Rivals rated New Orleans Isidore Newman running back Kendall Bussey the No. 170 overall prospect in the country this week. Rivals also rated Bussey as a four-star running back. He’s the No. 20 running back nationally.

Other nationally-rated Rivals players include defensive backs Eric Lee (No. 132) and Avery Anderson (No. 220).

Only Alabama, Arkansas, Florida State, Tennessee and Texas A&M have more committed players inside the Rivals 250. Lee is the No. 137 player nationally according to 247 Sports. Bussey is a three-star according to 247 Sports and the No. 62 running back in the country.

Ratings change often, especially this far from the next Signing Day. Remember: At this time last year, NU’s top-ranked recruit, Tanner Farmer, wasn’t even a two-star prospect.
