It's another edition of 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).

With USF having a bye this past week, the coaching staff had an opportunity to visit some of these kids in person and see them in action as their senior seasons wind down.

Let's dive in:

-Four-star St. Pete Admiral Farragut wide receiver Zion Roland was limited offensively this past Friday. He and his Blue Jackets fell to Berkeley Prep, 14-7.

No stats available for the #BayMade product just yet, so here's a few highlights from this season.

-Three-star Tampa Plant quarterback Jordan McCloud had a monster first half on Friday in the Panthers' 43-0 destruction of Wharton.

The hometown kid went 10-of-19 for 211 yards through the air, with four touchdowns (all to sophomore Frank Murphy) and one interception. McCloud and his team will look to remain undefeated when they visit Leto this Friday.

-Three-star Belle Glade Glades Central DB Gerald Jackson III and his team had a good showing this past Friday, stomping Lake Worth 50-8.

The Raiders are 4-2 on the campaign and will take on Boynton Beach this week.

-Three-star Jacksonville Bartram Trail guard Brad Cecil helped clear the paths for six rushing touchdowns Friday night as his team dominated Oakleaf, 48-14.

He and his fellow linemen have played a key role in a balanced Bears offensive attack. They're averaging 202.7 yards passing and 223.9 yards rushing per game.

-It was a dominant effort for two-star Atlanta Mays linebacker Antonio Grier Jr. and his team on Friday, crushing Region 5-AAAAAA foe Douglas County 35-3.

The Peach State product continues to lead the Raider defense with 55 tackles (4 TFLs) on the season.

-To say that three-star Venice defensive tackle Tyrone Barber and his team ran into a buzzsaw on Friday would be an understatement. The Indians were dominated by IMG Academy, 38-12. It's understandable considering that IMG is literally nothing but future Division I prospects being specifically groomed for the college game.

The Sarasota County lineman has 41 tackles (5 TFLs), three sacks, and three QB hurries as his Indians are sitting pretty at 5-1 on the year.

-Three-star Lakeland Jenkins defensive end Jordan Domineck and his team were outmatched at home by rival Lakeland on Friday, losing 52-20 to the visiting Dreadnaughts.

Coming off the weak side, Domineck was able to get into the backfield a few times throughout the contest and even recorded a sack.

Also of note from last week is that USF moved down to No. 2 in the AAC 2018 rankings after Luke Fickell and staff picked up a few verbal commitments for their class. It remains to be seen if any more players will commit to #Stampede18 during the season.

And as always, don't tweet at recruits.
