Hot prospects: With a big group enrolling this month and a small senior class leaving, USF only has 3-4 scholarships left in play, but it hopes to land QB Chris Moody of McDonough, Ga., who has visits to Vanderbilt and South Carolina remaining. Two possible commitments who have already visited campus are Oakland Park OL Kam Davis and Gainesville LB Tashon Whitehurst, a Syracuse commitment who went to school with early enrollee Chris Bivins. The Bulls might make a scholarship offer to Citra North Marion RB Jamie Gilmore, a teammate of commitment Sean Price who is very interested in USF.
