Bulls in mix for Gators transfer WR Story



A year after USF landed receiver Chris Dunkley and tight end Mike McFarland as transfers from Florida, USF is in the mix for another talented former Gator, as Nature Coast receiver JaJuan Story talked Monday night with coach Skip Holtz and offensive coordinator Todd Fitch.


According to Story's uncle, Nature Coast assistant Rudy Story, the Bulls indicated they are "definitely interested" in Story, who redshirted in 2011 and would have three years of eligibility after sitting out this season. Rudy Story said the Bulls would like to have Story visit campus and meet in person with USF's coaches after the Bulls return home from Vero Beach on Saturday night.

USF isn't the only suitor for Story -- his uncle said they made initial contact Monday with Wisconsin, TCU and Duke as well -- the TCU connection is former Miami coach Randy Shannon. They're not done evaluating what schools they will consider and will continue to build a list of potential landing spots. The only restrictions Florida placed on Story's release were to block him from other SEC schools, FSU and Miami, his uncle said.

USF is believed to have three scholarships available for this fall, thanks to offseason attrition. Another potential transfer, former Nebraska offensive lineman Tyler Moore, looks to be out of the picture as his father Brian told the Times' John C. Cotey on Monday that his son is not considering USF.
