After another set of recruits visited this past weekend, USF received additional verbal commits for the class of 2020, with Michael Cucci announcing his intentions to stay in the Bay Area and play for USF Football. It appears Cucci will be taking a preferred walk-on spot.
Wow! I guess you could say my dream has become reality. So thankful to announce I have decided to commit to the University of South Florida. Go Bulls @coach_jeffscott @xdye21 @JRashadWest @MustangFootball pic.twitter.com/WkQafmP0CG— Michael Cucci (@cucci_michael) February 2, 2020
WR Michael Cucci
6’4”, 171 pounds
Lakewood Ranch High School, Bradenton, FL
Recruiting Rankings: Not ranked by any major services (yet).
After getting stuck in a triple-option style offense his junior year, Cucci was finally able to showcase his abilities during his senior season under a spread-option style offense at Lakewood Ranch. The 6’4” senior wideout helped lead a team that went 0-10 the previous season to a 6-3 record his senior season and earning first team all district in 7A.
He compiled 51 catches for 654 yards and 11 touchdowns, including an overtime game winning touchdown catch against North Port to give the Mustangs a 3-0 start to the season. Where Cucci exceeds as a wide receiver is his route running and ability to go after 50-50 balls, both are highlighted well in his Hudl film.
