LBs Jeune, Pozniak, QB Floyd enroll at USF
USF has confirmed that as expected, three commitments -- quarterback Matt Floyd and linebackers Mike Jeune and Antoine Pozniak -- have enrolled in school and start spring classes today.
Jeune, a junior college transfer and former high school teammate of Bulls linebacker Sam Barrington, signed with USF last month and is expected to compete for the starting strongside linebacker job this spring. Floyd, a quarterback from Milton, will be able to compete in spring practices, as will Pozniak, who comes to Tampa from Oak Ridge Military Academy in North Carolina. These three are expected to be the only scholarship players joining USF for the spring semester.
-- Former USF center Sampson Genus has accepted an invitation to play in the Eastham Energy College All-Star Game, set for Jan. 23 in Arizona. Genus is the second Bulls player committed to the showcase game, joining receiver Dontavia Bogan. Defensive tackle Terrell McClain will play in the East-West Shrine Game in Orlando.
-- We tweeted last week that a North Carolina newspaper had identified USF offensive line coach Steve Shankweiler as a candidate for the head coaching job at I-A Elon. That job has been filled, going to N.C. State running backs coach Jason Swepson, who is just 40 years old.
-- One quick recruiting update -- Justin Scott-Wesley, the receiver from Camilla, Ga., said Monday that he will not visit USF as planned this weekend and is sticking with his commitment to Georgia.
-- Another Freshman All-America nod for USF's Terrence Mitchell, who made the Football Writers Association of America's first team -- Syracuse kicker Ross Krautman was only other Big East player on the team.
