Milton QB Floyd picks Bulls at Sling 'n' Shoot

25

July

Skip Holtz has picked up his second quarterback commitment this month, as Matt Floyd, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound senior from Milton, committed to the Bulls on Sunday afternoon at USF's Sling 'n' Shoot football camp on campus.

Floyd, who recently visited Alabama and Mississippi and had offers from Louisville, Clemson, Iowa State and Southern Miss, got to meet the other quarterback pledged to the Bulls, as he shook hands with Land O'Lakes star Stevie Weatherford as both talked with quarterbacks coach Peter Vaas and offensive coordinator Todd Fitch on the sidelines during the huge 7-on-7 tournament Sunday.

"He's a total, complete player -- he pretty much can do it all," said Bobby Johns, who took over as Milton's coach this spring. "He has a great understanding of the game, has great mechanics, makes decisions well under pressure.  He can run the option, play under center or out of shotgun."

Floyd isn't rated too highly by the major recruiting sites -- Scout.com rates him as a two-star recruit, and Rivals.com hasn't rated him yet, though Flavarsity.com ranks him as the No. 88 player in the state of Florida at any position.

As recently as April, Floyd didn't have a Division I scholarship offer, but he's had a busy three months -- he took part in the first-ever John Madden Football Camp at IMG Academies in June and was named Offensive Co-MVP.
