USC REPORT
Bush Meets With Agent and Carroll
By Gary Klein, Times Staff Writer


Running back Reggie Bush met with Coach Pete Carroll and a prominent agent for about an hour on campus Monday, but the Heisman Trophy winner said he still had not decided whether he would turn pro.

Bush, a junior who is regarded as the possible top pick in the NFL draft, met with David Dunn, who negotiated Heisman winner Carson Palmer's contract when the former USC quarterback was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals with the top pick in 2003. Carroll, Trojan running backs coach Todd McNair and Jayice Pearson, a former NFL player who is Bush's cousin, also attended the meeting at Heritage Hall.


Players have until Sunday to declare for the April draft.

"I'm still trying to figure everything out and put everything in perspective before I make my decision," Bush said after the meeting.

Bush said the meeting with Dunn would be his last with agents, but he emphasized that he had not chosen who would represent him if he turns pro.

"I'm far from making my decision," he said.

Dunn, who was accompanied by several associates, declined to comment.

While cognizant of the deadline, Bush said there was no timetable for an announcement about his plans.

"I've just got to be 100% sure of what I'm going to do before I make my decision," he said. "That could be as early as [today] or it could take as long as up to the end of the week, or until Sunday, the actual day."

Running back LenDale White, offensive linemen Winston Justice and Fred Matua, flanker Steve Smith and safety Darnell Bing are other draft-eligible USC juniors.

After an afternoon team meeting, Carroll said White had left him a phone message, but that he had not spoken to him Monday. White said last week he would announce his decision Thursday.

Justice said he was "still up in the air" and that he planned to meet with Carroll. Matua also said he was undecided. "It would take a lot for me to leave this university," he said.

Smith said the NFL had evaluated him as a possible third-round pick and that he would talk to his family about a possible decision on Monday night.

Bing did not attend the team meeting, but Carroll said he would meet with him this afternoon

Bush needs to declare soon cause all this VY love is making me sicker than a dog.

I'll be happy with Young or Bush. Both are gamebreakers.

The #1 pick is great, after all we worked hard for it.:redtowel:

I saw on ESPN news a couple minutes ago that LenDale White is supposed to be declaring for the draft later this week (the article mentioned he would announce his decision on Thursday, one way or the other), but apparently he has opted for the NFL.

I still think he is coming out, but this is rather shocking. He's far from a decision??? I'm guessing if San Fran. had the 1st pick he would have declared already. That's more a poke at you anti-VY folks...

He also says he is far from deciding. Boy life on this board and in the Texans front office would be better if he stayed in school.
