Arizona Western Juco TE Adrian Palmore Transfers to USF

Former Tampa Bay area recruit transfers back home to USF. Where have we heard this before?

The offseason means transfer season with players entering and leaving the program. This week Willie Taggart and company made a new addition to their roster in the form of a JuCo #BayMade tight end.

Coming out of community college powerhouse Arizona Western, TE Adrian Palmore will transfer and join the Bulls roster this fall. Our friend Joey Knight reports that he will come in as a walk-on.

A class of 2013 recruit out of nearby Lakewood High School (and teammate of Rodney Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling), the 6'3'', 245 LB St. Pete native receive slight interest from FAU and FIU during the recruiting process before deciding to attend Arizona Western.

Palmore only played one Yuma, AZ before missing the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL and MCL. Despite this setback, he received offers from Alabama State, Prairie View A&M, and Indiana State before deciding to come back home to the bay area. At this point, his grades need to be cleared with the university per Matt Manuri of, which shouldn't be an issue before the fall.

It is yet to be seen whether or not Palmore sees any playing time this season, especially with Elkanah Dillon and Mitchell Wilcox sitting firm as the primary options at tight end. But the extra depth certainly doesn't hurt, especially with the Class of 2016 not featuring any tight ends coming in.

Here's a highlight video from his 2014 campaign at Arizona Western:
