USF linebacker Auggie Sanchez (43) and the Bulls appear in the top 25 of all prominent preseason rankings released so far.

19

June

If the preseason ended today, USF would be a consensus top-25 squad.

Alas, a bit more forecasting and prognosticating looms (it's only mid-June), but so far the Bulls appear in every prominent summer top 25. Here they are, broken down by publication:

Lindy's: 17th

Athlon: 24th

Street & Smith's: 23rd

Phil Steele: 18th

The Sporting News: 22nd

We're still awaiting the preseason rankings from ESPN and Sports Illustrated (not to mention the Associated Press), but aren't expecting any shockers. The Bulls were 19th in the post-spring rankings compiled by ESPN's Mark Schlabach, and SI.com had the Bulls 25th in its way-too-early top 25 released in January.

And of course, USF finished 19th in last season's final AP poll.
