In hopes of bolstering their offensive line the USF staff brought in Delmar Taylor, an interior lineman at Navarro CC in Texas. The 6'4, 275 pound prospect is originally from Miami Beach and is currently a FIU commit made the trip to see what the Bulls had to offer.

"The visit to USF was real nice and I had a great time." said Taylor. "Everybody treated me great I learned a lot about the program and liked what I saw."

The 6-foot-4, 275 pound lineman arrived on Friday, got to check out the surrounding area and tour the USF campus and facilities.

"I've never been there before and I really liked it," said Taylor. "Tampa is a real nice city and they have a great campus. The facilities they have were just great too."

The JUCO lineman also got to attend the USF-Miami game on Saturday and enjoyed the game experience.

"I had a good time at the game and the atmosphere was great," said Taylor.  "It was a tough loss, but it was a real good game, the defense played great."

The JUCO prospect said the Bulls are recruiting him at center and he enjoyed getting the chance to be around the USF coaching staff.

"It was good being around them and I got a real good vibe from them," said Taylor. "They said a lot of positive influential things to me.  I think coach Shank is an honest man and a real great coach."

The Bulls are losing two centers after this season, and the staff made that clear to Taylor during the visit.

"They said they're losing two centers after this year, and need help on the line" said Taylor. "That's a void that needs to be filled and they're looking for someone that can step in."

During the visit Taylor was hosted by USF senior lineman Jeremiah Warren and got to spend time with the other lineman.

"I got to meet a lot of the players and spent a lot of time with Jeremiah Warren and Kevin (McCaskill)," said Taylor. "They're really cool dudes and showed me a great time. I really liked all of the players I met. They're all real nice and cool guys."

"They said real good things about coach Shank and the coaching staff as a whole," said Taylor. "They said the staff really believes in proper development in a player."

After a great weekend Taylor talked about how the visit affected how he felt about USF.

"It really helped a lot," said Taylor. "It enlightened my knowledge about the school and the program."

Taylor is currently an FIU commit, but now has a much higher interest in USF than before his visit.

"I'm still committed to FIU, but I have strong interest in USF," said Taylor. "Those are the only two schools I'm considering right now."

The stand out lineman is going to be a December graduate, and said his visit gives him a lot to consider.

"I got some thinking to do now," said Taylor.
