One that got away: Bass picks Illinois
Jamar Bass, the junior college offensive lineman from Apopka who had narrowed his choices to USF and Illinois, said Friday that he'll be joining the Illini this spring.
"I guess the atmosphere was it, the people there, the staff and the players," said Bass, who played at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas this fall.
Offensive line will continue to be a priority in recruiting, as the Bulls lose four senior starters from this year's starting five. USF remains in the running for another junior college standout, tackle Carlos Savala from College of the Desert.
