High praise for USF commitment Bellamy



We'd told you USF's first oral commitment for 2009, running back Adaris Bellamy of Dunedin, was in Orlando this weekend for the Football University camp. Here's what former Giants running back Rodney Hampton, who worked with the running backs at the camp, had to say about Bellamy:

"Adaris was one of the, if not the best running backs at the camp," Hampton said in a statement. "He truly has excellent footwork. You notice that right off. He is a complete, well-round running back. Very talented, great footwork, good hands, very coachable. I really enjoyed working with him. He needs to keep working all aspects of his game. It takes hard work, dedication and determination.

"These players today, like Adaris, are learning things in high school that I didn't learn until college. With all the camps and training they participate in they are well prepared for the next level. He definitely has what it takes to play Division I ball, and I think he'll find success at the collegiate level. I could see him playing on Sundays, too, but that is years from now. He is still in high school and has college to look forward to play, learn and grow."

-- Former USF defensive coordinator Rick Kravitz has landed at Western Michigan, where he'll coach safeties after being let go at Memphis after last season. It's Kravitz's fourth school in as many seasons, following stops at USF, N.C. State and Memphis. He'll recruit the South Florida area for the Broncos, who had 16 players from Florida on their 2007 roster.
