2017: Hoggins once again proved to be a force in USF’s secondary, tallying 53 tackles, eight pass breakups, and two interceptions. He had a season-high nine pass breakups and two interceptions in the Birmingham Bowl. You can listen to him talk to Collin and Nate at AAC Media Days here.
2016: Although he missed two games due to injury and only started seven, Hoggins still racked up 53 tackles, two interceptions (against Cincinnati and Navy), and three pass breakups. He forced a fumble at Syracuse, and recovered one at SMU. Twice Hoggins hit double digits in tackles — a career-high 12 against Syracuse, and 10 against Memphis.
2015: Ronnie wasted no time making an impression in his true freshman year. He played in all 13 games, starting the last 10. He made a total of 26 tackles, 1.5 for loss, and intercepted passes against Florida A&M and UCF. Hoggins also led the team with six pass breakups. At the end of the year, Ronnie won the team’s Freshman of the Year award.
How He Came To USF: Ronnie played at Monarch High School in Coconut Creek, about halfway between Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton. He had a monster senior year, intercepting 15 passes for the Knights and returning four for touchdowns as Monarch reached the second round of the state playoffs. He finished with a total of 28 high school interceptions and chose USF over a slew of other offers, including Cincinnati, Louisville, TCU, Temple, Texas, and Wisconsin.
High School Highlights: Here you will find Ronnie intercepting a lot of passes.
