USF hopefuls show football skills to scouts

TAMPA — Former USF cornerback Trae Williams and linebacker Ben Moffitt helped their draft stock with solid times in the 40-yard dash as NFL scouts gathered Friday for USF's pro day workouts.

Williams, who ran a 4.53 at the NFL combine, was clocked at 4.48 seconds and Moffitt, who didn't run at the combine because of a tweaked hamstring, was timed at 4.55 seconds. Moffitt, who weighed in at 224 pounds, 21 less than he was listed last season, recorded a 37-inch vertical leap, 5 inches better than his mark at the combine. Both players are projected as mid-round picks.

Cornerback Mike Jenkins, projected as a first-round pick, did not run Friday, content to let the 4.38 he ran at the combine stand. Jenkins ran through positional drills for scouts.

SOFTBALL: USF completed a 5-1 win over Saint Joseph's in the Under Armour Invitational in Clearwater. The game was postponed by rain Thursday in the fourth inning.

The Bulls then defeated North Carolina State 4-3 in nine innings. Pinch-hitter Laura Wolf singled to right-center to drive in Lauren Rodriguez for the winning run for the Bulls (13-8).

USF faces Jacksonville at 3:30 p.m. today, then takes on the U.S. national team at 6:30 at the Eddie C. Moore Complex.

Times staff writer Greg Auman contributed to this report.
