They pretty much just said, well, if anything changes with South Florida, let us know so we can get back involved. But I never had any second thoughts at all. I realized it was the best for me and I want to stay in Tampa. My high school coaches were mad. They'd say, 'What if Florida wants to come in?' but that didn't mean anything to me. I wanted to be at USF. That's cool.There are way to many coaches who want to make sure that their kids go to Big Name programs instead of supporting them to make a decision that is best for them. I saw this way to much even at my HS growing up when our coaches would only push the big schools just so that could say they sent X number of kids to UF, FSU, etc. http://usf.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=816502 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
