East Lake defensive back Devin Abraham committed to USF Saturday, continuing the Bulls' run on bay area recruits.

Abraham, a senior, is listed as a three-star recruit by 247Sports. He had seven offers and said his decision came to down to Middle Tennessee State and USF.

On Friday, Abraham visited USF with his father, former Tampa Bay Buccaneer standout and current Clearwater coach Donnie Abraham, as well as the rest of the family. Abraham said he called Bulls coach Willie Taggart Saturday night to tell him the news.

“I’ve been familiar with the school for a long time, and just knew it was for me,” Abraham said of USF. “I just felt like there wasn’t a need to wait any longer.”

Last year, Abraham had 67 tackles and four interceptions and helped the Eagles advance to the Class 8A region final for the second straight season.

He is the third bay area player to commit to the Bulls within the past week, joining Jefferson quarterback/defensive back Deiondre Porter and Wharton quarterback Chase Litton.

Abraham also is the third Pinellas County player from the 2014 class to decide on USF. Largo’s Jarvis Stewart and Frankie Hernandez are the others.
