In addition to compiling the seventh most interceptions in program history, former Cincinnati Bearcats cornerback Arquon Bush set a school record with three blocked kicks in his career!
Bush finished his time at Cincinnati with 115 tackles, 21 pass deflections and nine interceptions in 49 appearances en route to receiving All-AAC honors following his senior campaign.
Playing alongside a ton of talented defensive backs, Bush showed off his versatility by starting at nickleback for three years before transitioning to cornerback prior to last season.
The Cleveland product was a significant part of a record-breaking 30-game win streak at Nippert Stadium, back to back conference championships and the historic College Football Playoff berth.

After displaying his impressive footwork and speed at the NFL Scouting Combine and annual Pro Day event in late March, Bush is projected to get picked in the 2023 NFL Draft this month!
During his redshirt freshman year, Bush had a break out game with a fumble recovery and two interceptions including a 36-yard touchdown return against East Carolina in 2018.
Bush came up big with a game-changing interception in a comeback win over Miami last season as the Bearcats scored 21 straight points to secure a 16th consecutive win in the rivalry.

The senior cornerback participated in Pro Day last month alongside over a dozen former Bearcats including Ja’Von Hicks, Ivan Pace Jr, Tyler Scott, Jabari Taylor, Tre Tucker and more.
Bush reminisced on his memorable Bearcats career and more in a recent interview with me!
"“Some of my favorite moments and memories are just being around the team and with the guys in the locker room. It’s a brotherhood. You have 100+ guys in the locker room and everyone is just talking, joking around and laughing. I would say I finished off my career the way I wanted to. I did everything I needed to do and I felt like I put myself in a good spot to play at the next level. Our nickel ended up getting hurt and I came into start against East Carolina when I had two interceptions and a pick six. That’s when I started to play the nickel position. I remember when I first walked out, coach Marcus Freeman asked me if I was nervous and I said I don’t get nervous because it’s football, and I know I’m going to go out there and execute my job.”"
