The sunshine state is known for talent, especially down south where there is always the abundance of speed and athleticism. Last year the USF staff did very well on the other coast, and is looking to do the same this season.

When it comes to producing talent, no place may be better than Dade County, and this year Miami Central HS has its share of elite prospects, and they're led by 6'0-175 pound QB Jeffrey Godfrey who is in the midst of spring ball.

"The team is looking great, better than last year, now we just got to come together as a team and play football. We're going do some big things this year."

As a junior Godfrey threw for 2,126 yards and 26 touchdowns with only 5 interceptions while rushing for 680 yards and 11 more scores. He led his team to the second round of the state playoffs, and earned Class 6A Second Team All-State and All-Dade County First Team. This spring plenty of colleges are taking notice of the talented quarterback with plenty of visits at practice.

"There have been a lot of people coming by. Coaches from FSU, West Virginia, USF, Wake Forrest, Miami, Florida, Tennessee, and a bunch of others have all stopped by."

Godfrey has over 14 offers from the likes of Michigan, Florida State, USF, Miami, Tennessee, Ohio State, Georgia, S. Carolina, Oregon, and West Virginia among others. With plenty of other schools showing interest, Godfrey isn't ready to name a leader.

"I'm pretty open right now" said Godfrey. "I want to go where I can compete for the starting job and be the man."

The talented prospect is being recruited mainly as a QB, but some schools are recruiting him as a receiver, and others including Oregon State, Ohio state, and Florida are talking about switching him to defensive back.

"A few want me as a slot receiver or DB," said Godfrey. "But I've played quarterback my whole life and that's want I want to play in college."

"I'm only considering schools that want me at quarterback, said Godfrey. I look at depth charts because I want to play early and I don't want to get stuck in the shot gun all day either. I want to come up under center, do play action, and things similar to what we run now."

The USF staff is recruiting him as quarterback and with his elite arm, and ability to throw on the run is a perfect fit to run their spread offense.

"They say they want me as a quarterback," said Godfrey. "They think I can come in and compete for the starting job."

The Central gunslinger said he doesn't know everything about the program, but has seen them play several times, and knows a few players.

"They have a great quarterback and a great offense that they run. It's very similar to what we run and South Florida would be a great school to go to and they're in the running."

"I know one kid from Central that goes there, Sabbath Joseph, and I know the kids they got form Pace last year, Kavon Webster, and Sterling Griffin."

One thing the Bulls do have in their favor is they've already offered scholarships to two of Godfrey's teammates and best friends, Brandon Gainer and Joshua Reese. And the trio has talked about being together at the next level.

"We talk about it all the time and already decided that all three of us want to go to the same school together," Godfrey said. "We were just talking about it the other day, and that's what we want to do. USF, FSU, West Virginia, and Duke have offered all three of us. So they have an edge."

The Bulls hit a triple at Miami Pace with Kavon Webster, Sterling Griffin, and Derrick Hopkins and is hoping to do the same this year with the trio at Miami Central.

Godfrey and his teammates don't know their camp schedule yet, but knows they'll be going to a few. He also plans on being an early graduate an early decision is likely.

"It's got to be soon, because I'll be coming out in January. So I'll probably decide right after the season."
