LATEST IN LINE OF WEATHERFORD QB PROSPECTS PICKS USF

USF picked up its first quarterback commitment toward the Class of 2011, as Land O'Lakes quarterback Stevie Weatherford committed Friday.

"I've always liked USF," Weatherford said. "I've been thinking about it a lot. I really like (USF quarterbacks coach) Peter Vaas. The offense is a good place for me. The quarterback situation couldn't be any better."

Weatherford also considered Cincinnati and East Carolina. He threw for 2,052 yards, 27 touchdowns and five interceptions as a junior.

Weatherford, USF's sixth commitment overall, will join his two brothers as college QBs in the state. Drew played at Florida State, and Joe played at UCF before transferring this spring to West Georgia.

Weatherford is rated a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, which ranks him the nation's No. 25 quarterback for his class.

AD IN TROUBLE: Georgia athletics director Damon Evans tearfully apologized for his Wednesday night arrest on charges of driving under the influence in Atlanta, but his future remained in doubt.

In a statement, university president Michael Adams - who is on vacation but talked to Evans on the phone Thursday - said a decision on Evans' future will not come until more details are available.

According to the police report, Evans repeatedly referred to his AD position and asked the patrol officer if there was "anything you can do without arresting me."

Evans, 40, was charged with DUI and failure to maintain a lane. Also arrested was Courtney Fuhrmann, 28, who was charged with disorderly conduct. In the report, the officer noted he found a "red pair of lady's panties between (Evans') legs." When he asked Evans, a married father of two, what he was doing with the underwear, Evans said: "She took them off and I held them because I was just trying to get her home."

Information from Times wires was used in this report.
