LB Sutton pushed back to January
Linebacker Calvin Sutton of DeLand will not report to USF with this year's incoming freshman after failing to qualify academically and hopes to enroll as part of the Bulls' 2008 class.
"I won't be there til January," Sutton said Wednesday. "My GPA slipped and I didn't get the test score I needed. I'm going to be at USF in January though."
Sutton said he'll stay in Tampa with his father, Calvin Sr., while taking the entrance exams to get the necessary scores for initial eligibility. He's the second signee confirmed as failing to qualify, joining defensive end Claude Davis of Lake Gibson. Coach Jim Leavitt had said as many as five or six signees might not qualify, and USF had signed more than the maximum 25 recruits anticipating this.
