Follow along as we check in with some of USF football's Class of 2018 verbal commits and see how they're performing on Friday nights.

Hey, remember the bajillion recruits that verbally committed to USF football around a month ago?

Well, another new thing we're going to try to do this football season is keep tabs on how they're doing in their senior years for their respective high school teams. I'm going to feature about eight guys each week, because screw going through all 97 of them. That would take forever.

Expect this to drop every Sunday or Monday. Let's jump in:

  • Three-star South Dade tight end Chris Carter Jr. caught a touchdown in their 26-18 victory over Coral Gables.
  • Yo, watch Okeechobee verbal commit Jajuan Cherry commit theft and house it the other way. His Brahmans ultimately fell to Treasure Coast, but this highlight is pretty sweet.
  • On the opposite sideline from Cherry was three-star defensive end commit Rashawn Yates, who blew up Okeechobee's left tackle for most of the game and even got a touchdown on offense.
  • Checking in with one of USF's Atlanta verbal commits, Carver quarterback Octavious Battle has led his team to a 2-0 mark so far this season. In the two victories, he's gone 23-for-30 for 464 yards and three touchdowns through the air while rushing for 65.
  • Chiefland running back Brian Norris Jr. ran for a touchdown and made a few plays defensively in the Indians' season debut vs. Trenton on Friday.
  • Miami Central's Dwayne Boyles was all over the field on Friday as he helped his Rockets smash Chaminade-Madonna 48-24. Playing opposite Boyles on the Chaminade-Madonna side was fellow 2018 verbal commit Sebastian Sainterling.
  • Three-star guard Adonis Boone helped clear paths for the Mainland offense on Friday as they shut out DeLand 24-0. He and his Buccaneers will welcome the aforementioned Cecil and Bartram Trail this Friday..

As always, don't tweet at recruits, even if they make a sick play during their games.
