Later than usual this week, but we're back with another edition of our weekly recruiting roundup. This is 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).
Before we dive into the usual suspects, USF has a new verbal commit... sort of.
Two weeks after visiting for the Cincinnati game, Merritt Island LB/LS Andrew Beardall announced (using the Notes app, of course) that he would be taking his talents to Tampa.
He doesn't have a a profile on any of the major recruiting websites and has not yet been listed with the other #Stampede18 verbal commits. We're assuming that he's coming on as a long snapper in a preferred walk-on role.
Here are some of Beardall’s highlights:
-The Jacksonville Lee duo of Eugene Bowman IV and Vincent Davis Jr. helped the Generals clinch the District 2-7A title last week with a 20-6 victory over Fletcher. They close out the regular season at White this Friday before hosting Tallahassee Lincoln next week in round one of the state playoffs.
According to MaxPreps, Bowman has 26 tackles and a fumble recovery on the season while Davis has 34 tackles (two for loss). His impressive senior year outing earned him an invite to the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl in New Orleans.
The secondary tandem were also celebrated on Senior Night:

-Four-star St. Pete Admiral Farragut wide receiver Zion Roland and his team won a see-saw battle 35-33 against Northside Christian last Friday.
The Blue Jackets will host Zephyrhills Christian Academy this Friday.
Through nine games this season, McCloud has thrown for 1,556 yards and 19 touchdowns through the air. He’s added 264 yards and three scores on the ground.
-Moving back up to the Peach State, two-star Atlanta Mays linebacker Antonio Grier Jr. helped his Raiders lock up the 6-AAAAAA region championship with a 34-24 victory at Alexander last Friday.
The ATL product continues to lead his defense this season with 76 tackles (seven for loss), two interceptions and a sack.
-Really rough night last Friday for three-star Lakeland Jenkins defensive end Jordan Domineck and his team — they were blasted 38-0 by Osceola.
But the week wasn't all bad for the USF prospect. He was invited to the Blue-Grey All American Bowl Game being held in his future home of Raymond James Stadium.
And as always, do not tweet at the recruits.
