Bulls land 3 weekend commitments
In the immediate wake of their last on-campus recruiting showcase of the summer, the Bulls have landed three non-binding verbal commitments from the Class of 2017.
On Sunday, Orange Park Oakleaf DB Nick Roberts and North Marion OT Jeremiah Stafford both announced via Twitter they have committed to USF. The night before, shortly after the Bulls wrapped up their Saturday Night Lights event on campus, Miami Dr. Krop WR Randall St. Felix tweeted his commitment to the Bulls.
The latest pledges give USF five non-binding commitments for the Class of '17.
Roberts (5-foot-10, 170 pounds), a three-star prospect according to 247Sports, reportedly has nearly two-dozen offers including Florida, Miami, South Carolina, UCLA and Penn State. Stafford (6-4, 285) and St. Felix (6-2, 190) are deemed two-star prospects by Scout.com.
Though in perpetual recruiting mode, Coach Willie Taggart and his staff now shift from summer camps to preseason camp.
Taggart and select Bulls players will attend the American Athletic Conference Media Days Aug. 1-2, with Taggart slated to join a handful of other coaches at the ESPN "Car Wash" at the network's Bristol, Conn., campus on Aug. 3.
Preseason drills begin later that week; a complete schedule should be released in coming days.
