USF is developing strong inroads with some of Central Florida’s top 2013 prospects.
Winter Park quarterback Asiantii Woulard (6-4, 205) and DeLand running back JoJo Kemp (5-10, 190) visited Tampa this weekend, along with several other Central Florida prospects, for the program’s junior day event on Sunday, and both came away high on the Bulls.
“Honestly, USF is a great school and right now, they’re number one,” said Kemp, who holds offers from USF and Marshall.
Woulard, who’s been offered by USF, Pittsburgh and Florida A&M, also but the Bulls at the top of his wish list after the touring the campus and visiting with South Florida’s coaching staff.
“Right now, they’re number one,” said Woulard, who regularly makes a USF baseball cap part of his wardrobe. “I can see [committing to USF], big time.”
Winter Park defensive back Blake McClain (6-0, 185), ranked No. 67 in the Florida Top 100, has USF in his top three along with Miami and Notre Dame. USF is the lone school to offer McClain at this point.
Freedom receiver Jeff Badet (5-11, 170), ranked No.63, as well as Olympia offensive lineman Shawn Curtis (6-5, 265, No. 75) and defensive end Ramar Dennis (6-2, 225, No. 94) also attended the junior day and were told by USF coaches that they could receive offers during spring practice.
USF has had success recruiting Central Florida in recent years, landing Winter Park WR Dvario Montgomery, Orlando Oak Ridge ATH Guito Ervilus and Orlando Olympia DT J.T. Hamilton in 2012, and Orlando Olympia safety Corian Hamilton, Orlando Boone OL Max Lang and Evans OL Darrell Williams in 2011, while 2010 recruit Mark Joyce of DeLand has seen extended action as a safety and will be a junior.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
