51. *** Bakari Bussey (6-3, 190, WR, West Chester Lakota West)

Bakari Bussey is another player that I am surprised has not drawn more interest.

Bussey is such a big, athletic kid and has a great upside.

I don’t think we have seen nearly the best of Bussey. As a big, over-the-top receiver, he dominates defensive backs. Get him one on one, throw it up and let him go up and get it. He is the kind of player that will win the majority of those battles and plays big. Bussey goes after defensive backs after the catch knowing they are unlikely to bring him down and he is a very good blocker.

He has offers from Indiana, Toledo, Miami (Oh.) and Ohio*. He will likely pick from one of those three MAC schools as there just doesn’t seem to be the kind of interest I thought there would be for Bussey, the son of former Cincinnati Bengal defensive back Dexter Bussey.
