USF locked down one of the biggest pieces to its 2018 recruiting class on Thursday as St. Pete Admiral Farragut wide receiver Zion Roland has signed his LOI to become a Bull.
Zion Roland will be signing his letter of Intent Friday December 22nd at Southside Christian School located at (3647 18th Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL 33711) at 9am. We cannot thank each and EVERYONE of you enough for the role that you have played in this accomplishment. Thanks pic.twitter.com/6wCw91Nmp8— Florida's Elite Inc. (@FloridasInc) December 15, 2017
For a while, Roland was the highest rated #Stampede18 verbal commit before USF snagged DE Stacy Kirby out of nowhere on Wednesday.
Listed as a four-star prospect by ESPN, Roland was originally committed to Louisville early in his recruiting process before decommiting in May.
The 727 product ended up verbally committing to USF in September (in the middle of Hurricane Irma no less) where he's stayed solidly committed since.
He also played a role in getting fellow teammate and three-star defensive tackle John Waller to verbally commit as well.
