Jefferson OL Jean Marcellus, ranked No. 19 on the Times' list of the top 100 local high school players for 2016, announced via Twitter on Monday that he has committed to USF.

Marcellus, a 6-foot-4, 301-pound Haiti native, is the fourth member of the Class of 2017 to give USF a non-binding pledge since Saturday night, when the Bulls wrapped up their one-day Saturday Night Lights camp. He projects as a guard in college.

"After Saturday Night Lights I felt something," Marcellus said in a text message Monday afternoon. "I love the atmosphere and the people around me. I really would like to play for my city."

Deemed a three-star prospect by 247Sports, Marcellus reportedly has 13 offers including Kentucky, Louisville and Miami.
