The transfer help that USF coach Charlie Strong hinted would arrive has started trickling in.

The latest arrival: former Notre Dame safety Devin Studstill, who announced via Twitter he’s headed to Tampa as a graduate transfer. A four-start recruit from Palm Beach Gardens High, he’s set to earn his degree in May, according to ndinsider.com.

Studstill (listed at 6-foot, 200 pounds last season) joins Oklahoma State grad-transfer linebacker Patrick Macon, who announced earlier this week he’s also headed to USF.

Both should be eligible for the Bulls immediately.

Studstill had 38 tackles, a forced fumble and interception for Notre Dame as a freshman in 2016. From there, he watched his playing time and productivity diminish as the Irish defensive coordinator job became a revolving door. In three seasons, he totaled 60 tackles.

The Bulls will hold a public scrimmage today starting at 11:15 at Clearwater Central Catholic.
