USF football is starting to pick up steam during #SummerCrootinSeason.

Less than 24 hours after receiving a verbal commitment from Okeechobee ATH Jajuan Cherry, the Bulls picked up anotha’ one for their 2018 recruiting class — Belle Glade Glades Central DB Gerald Jackson III.

After making an unofficial visit to campus earlier in the week, the Muck City athlete teased his decision via Twitter for the next few days before finally making it official Friday morning.

The Glades Central standout has spent the first two years of his prep career primarily playing wide receiver for the Raiders, but seemingly focused more on his role in the secondary during his junior season.

New USF defensive backs coach Blue Adams is credited as the one to pull Jackson to Tampa, once again making good use of his direct connections to South Florida.

Jackson becomes the fourth prospect to commit to the Bulls’ 2018 class, joining the aforementioned Cherry, South Dade TE Chris Carter Jr., and Bartram Trail OG Brad Cecil.
