Bulls offer Rod Strickland's son
Tampa Catholic rising junior PG Tai Strickland, son of USF assistant Rod Strickland, has received an offer from the Bulls.
It's Strickland's first offer, according to the Crusaders.
Raised around hoops royalty in hotbeds such as Washington, D.C., Memphis and Lexington, Ky., Strickland (5-foot-8, 150 pounds) played at Jesuit his freshman season before transferring to TC last summer. He averaged roughly eight points this past season, helping guard the Crusaders to the Class 4A state tournament.
In the regular season finale against Jesuit, he scored 19, hitting six 3-pointers.
