USC football and college sports Twitter came together to celebrate Reggie Bush’s reported return.

Reggie Bush is coming back to be embraced by USC football once again. At least, that’s what was reported by Kyle Bonagura of ESPN on Tuesday evening.

The news comes on the eve of the 10-year anniversary of the devastating NCAA penalties against USC, which included an indefinite disassociation of Bush and the Trojans.

While nothing is official yet, social media was buzzing with the possibility of Bush returning while calling for his Heisman to be restored.

Best social media reaction to Reggie Bush’s reported return to USC:

While news of Bush’s disassociation was just hitting Twitter, former Trojan quarterback Matt Leinart added fuel to the fire by hinting at big news on Wednesday.

It’s no longer a question of “if” USC brings back Bush, but how.

Antonio Morales of The Athletic got this telling quote from a former Trojan on the nature of Bush’s return:

Former USC defender Tony Burnett made his feelings on the matter known…

Former Trojan running back Marc Tyler stuck with emojis.

Even former Georgia tight end Arthur Lynch weighed in.

So did Lamar Jordan, a former New Mexico wide receiver from Texas.

The media seemed to come together to agree on one thing: Bush’s Heisman should be restored.

Kevin McGuire from Athlon kicked it off…

He was followed by Field Yates from ESPN…

…and Danni Santana from Front Office Sports…

…and Jonathan Jones from CBS Sports…

…and Josh Newman of the Salt Lake Tribune…

…and Clay Travis of Fox Sports Radio…

…and Adam Schein of…

…and Ohio State 247Sports affiliate editor Dave Biddle…

…and even Notre Dame alum Mike Golic Jr…

Countless others shared similar opinions.

Unsurprisingly, USC fans agreed with many of those sentiments as they celebrated the news.

The Bush news was also an opportunity to rehash old wrongs when it came to the infractions levied against USC.

Finally, Jason Smith of Fox Sports Radio laid out a dream scenario for Trojan fans.

The return of USC’s seventh Heisman along with the addition of an eighth Heisman winner would be quite the turn of events.

USC still needs to make the news official. They could do so on Wednesday or bide their time waiting for the right moment.

However it happens, public sentiment seems to support the idea of Bush returning to good standing as a Trojan legend.
