HOT PROSPECTS: The Bulls' biggest needs are at quarterback and running back. There likely will be a oral commitment or two this weekend with Kissimmee's Stafon McCray and DeLand's JoJo Kemp making official visits. Quarterback isn't as solid. Former USF commitment Asiantii Woulard is visiting UCLA after visiting Clemson last weekend. Backup plans include Fort Lauderdale's John O'Korn, who is pledged to Houston. Another key visit this weekend is Jesuit TE Travis Johnson. The Bulls might get a teammate of committed tackle Dominique Threatt: offensive lineman Jeremi Hall, who had committed to Georgia Tech.
