Another week, another edition of the our weekly recruiting roundup, where we check in with a handful of USF's Class of 2018 verbal commits (because it would take way too long to hit them all).
Let's dive right in:
- It's been a while since we've looked at Homestead South Dade tight end Chris Carter Jr., who verbally committed all the way back in April as the inaugural member of #Stampede18.
He and his Buccaneers are 3-0 on the season, beating Miami Jackson (where some guy named Quinton Flowers went to high school) 14-7 before enjoying a bye this past Friday.
No stats are available for the Homestead product, but here are some highlights from his senior campaign so far, including their game versus Jackson. He's #11.
- The Jacksonville Lee secondary duo of Vincent Davis Jr. and Eugene Bowman IV helped with a dominant defensive effort on Friday as the Generals shut out Atlantic Coast, 36-0.
Here's the two posing with former teammate and current freshman linebacker Keirston Johnson afterwards.
Through five games, Davis has 26 tackles and an interception while Bowman has 18 tackles and two fumble recoveries.
This Friday, the duo will face fellow DUUUUUUVVVAAAALLL 2018 verbal commit Devon Matthews when Lee visits Ribault.
- Hometown kid Jontrey Hunter and his Sickles Gryphons had a really rough go of things this past Thursday, getting torched by crosstown foe Plant 36-0.
Once again, the after effects of Hurricane Irma rescheduling has put another verbal commits' team into an undesirable position. Having played Plant on Thursday, Sickles is scheduled to play Wiregrass Ranch on Monday before taking on Leto on Friday. That's got to be tough.
- Miami Central defensive end Dwayne Boyles are 4-1 on year with the Rockets' latest triumph coming via a 23-12 victory over Norland on Thursday.
Here are some of his mid-season highlights:
- Chiefland running back Brian Norris Jr. and his team broke a two-game losing streak by shutting out Hamilton County 10-0 on Tuesday.
Through five games, the senior tailback/linebacker has 341 rushing yards on 5.2 yards per carry and two touchdowns.
- Port St. Lucie Treasure Coast defensive end Rashawn Yates and his team got a decisive 23-7 victory over Fort Pierce Central on Friday.
Even more impressive, check out this highlight from the week before of him turning a busted punt into six for the Titans.
As always, don't tweet at recruits.
