At the buzzer: Bulls get Webster from Miami



How's this for finishing strong? For the second time in as many days, USF has beaten out Miami for a key defensive recruit, as Miami Pace defensive back Kayvon Webster, a longtime Hurricanes commitment, has switched and signed with the Bulls, joining two high school teammates.

"All three just signed with South Florida," Pace coach Andre Slaughter said Wednesday.

Webster, rated a three-star recruit by both and, joins two previous commitments from Pace, receivers Derrick Hopkins and Sterling Griffin. Webster had been committed to Miami since September, but has switched over to USF, adding to a huge class for the Bulls.

The pickup is especially important for USF since another top defensive back, Delray Beach's Jayron Hosley, opted Wednesday to sign with Virginia Tech instead of the Bulls.
