Kissimmee RB McCray commits to play for Bulls



A key recruiting weekend for USF football has its first commitment, as Stafon McCray, a running back from Kissimmee Osceola, said he committed to the Bulls on Sunday during his official campus visit.


McCray has good size at 6 feet, 208 pounds, and has put up impressive numbers in the last two years at Osceola -- more than 1,700 yards and 25 touchdowns this season on a team that went 13-1 and reached the state semifinals, and 1,500 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior. He's a teammate and close friend of another USF commitment, defensive back Hassan Childs.

McCray had been looking at schools like Marshall and Utah State (which finished the year ranked), but Osceola coach Doug Nichols said USF and Louisville both made late pushes, and USF got McCray, thanks to solid recruiting by Ron Cooper and Stu Holt. Nichols said McCray is already academically qualified as well.
