USF’s huge July recruiting haul will bring dividends

 

With the start of fall practice, the University of South Florida Bulls are looking forward to this season. Some key components, led by quarterback Quinton Flowers and running back Marlon Mack, provide good reason for optimism.

Football programs are always looking to build long-term stability based on recruiting. As the month of July began, Coach Willie Taggart had to be apprehensive about who would be following Flowers, Mack and others after they moved on.

Just two weeks ago, USF had precisely one commitment, receiver Jernard Phillips, for the 2017 recruiting class. Phillips committed in April, but as of July 19, no one had followed him to Tampa.

That changed dramatically in the month of July as Taggart received 12 commitments over the final 12 days of the month. The class was topped off when four-star athlete Bruce Judson of Cocoa Beach chose the Bulls over the college football elite programs that had expressed interest.

We are, not quite as limited as we thought we would be but at the most we have 6 spots available. Original projection was around 15.
