The running back room remains status quo.

NCAA Football: Gasparilla Bowl-Marshall vs South Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Two week after initially learning that USF Football running back JaJuan Cherry was in the NCAA Transfer Portal, The Daily Stampede has learned from a source with direct knowledge of the situation, that “as of right now” Cherry is back with the team and participating in off-season workouts.

The same day redshirt quarterback Octavious Battle announced that he would be transferring from the school, we noticed a new name in the 247sports Transfer Portal in JaJuan Cherry.

The former 2018 three-star from Okeechobee switched positions from safety to running back before spring practice and showed some promise at his new position. He injured his shoulder at the open practice in Clearwater, just a week before the spring game, which he missed as well. The Daily Stampede was told that Cherry will stay at running back.

It is unknown if Cherry remains in the transfer portal at this time.
