Signing Day - Mid-day update: On Andre Davis, Watson and ones that got away
It's been a very busy - and productive - signing day for the Bulls, who were able to pull in a huge get with Miami Booker T. Washington DT Elkino Watson.
The rivals four-star recruit is officially in, and in picking USF over Miami and Florida, made for one of the biggest upsets of the day. Already in are locals including Robinson HS Ruben Gonzalez and Jefferson WR Andre Davis (more on him later). The Bulls did miss out on Armwood QB/S Josh Grady, who picked Vanderbilt over USF, and Miami Central OL Marquis Lucas (who picked West Virginia).
Davis, who helped lead Jefferson to the state championship this year, said USF is a really good "up-and-coming program" and should be able to get some of the top recruits in the next couple years." A video of Davis is at the top of this blog.
