USF Football Recruiting Roundup

With less than a month to go until National Signing Day, let’s get you reset on everything that has happened so far.

NCAA Football: Birmingham Bowl-South Florida vs South Carolina Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

In 27 days, one of the best yet definitely the worst part of college football will be over. On February 1, faxes from all over the country will be sent to let programs know who will be attending their school to help them win football games for the next four or five years.

Since former head coach Willie Taggart took the Oregon job back in December, much speculation has gone on about who he will try to poach from USF’s 2017 class and the answer appears to be literally anyone that can be a difference-maker for the Bulls.

Athlete Bruce Judson, arguably the Bulls’ best recruiter outside of maybe Shaun King, reopened his recruitment:

That just so happened to be the day USF announced the hiring of new head coach Charlie Strong.

Wide Receiver Demetri Burch:

Both are still committed to USF, but will take official visits to Oregon later this month and will decide on NSD. Kinda like how you get engaged to someone, but still want to date other people right up until the wedding day just to be sure.

Fortunately, the Bulls have only lost two recruits since Taggart’s departure: Three-star defensive end J’Bril Glaze from Jefferson High School and three-star outside linebacker Michael Scott from Dunder Mifflin Paper Company-Scranton Branch North Florida Christian in Tallahassee.

New head coach Charile Strong has his work cut out for him in his first cycle, but he was able to land USF in the top five for five-star defensive tackle Marvin Wilson, which is huge and probably a courtesy to Strong.

Let’s pray these next 27 days fly by without any incidents or controversy and everyone can be happy.

One more thing,

DON’T TWEET AT RECRUITS!!!!!!
