Rushing wrote, “I have considered the recent advancements and strides the program has made.” “Even if it is clear that the program is growing, I must think about my long-term objective. I’ve decided that, in terms of my development, the program is not the best place for me to go next.


Elijah Rushing “desire as a hometown kid was to stay here and reach the next step in his development, but we’re deciding to decommit to weigh out all the options moving forward,” according to George Rushing, the father of the athlete, who spoke with Blair Angulo of 247Sports.


“As a program, they have accomplished a lot of really good things and made some great strides, but they’re building more long term,” the elder Rushing said to Angulo. “The plan isn’t in line with our objectives and the actions we want to take to advance further while vying for titles.”
