Kameron Davis, a three-star offensive lineman from Oakland Park (FL) Northeast, has chosen to play for Coach Holtz and USF.
The 6-foot-5, 295 pound recruit was considered one of the top uncommitted o-linemen in the state of Florida and was the Bulls top O-line prospect.
The 3-star recruit is rated the No. 81st best offensive tackle and received over 20 offers through the recruiting cycle, but was deciding between South Florida, West Virginia,and East Carolina, before choosing the Bulls on Wednesday.
Davis visited both WVU and ECU months ago, but visited USF last two weeks ago.
After his visit Davis's Head Coach Donnell Bennet said that Davis really enjoyed himself and had a lot of good things to say aboutUSF.
"He really liked his visit to Tampa, said it really went well and he really had a great time over there" said Bennett. "He said he liked the campus, the facilities, and really liked all the guys he met over there. He enjoyed being around all the staff and the players."
Bennett said what kept the Bulls among his top choices.
"I think they've been doing a great job up there. Coach has done a tremendous job of turning out great talent. They have a great schedule and play competitive games every year. and the program is definitely on the rise."
"South Florida is a great place to be and they have a great environment over there," said Bennett. "They have great facilities, Coach Holtz has done a tremendous job since he arrived. They had a lot of close losses last season, and they're going to be able to build off that and continue to get better."
He also mentioned the coaching staff and how good of a job they did recruiting Davis.
"They have a great staff and that's what it's all about. Putting the pieces together and giving the team the opportunity to win championships."
I asked Bennett how important relationships are with Davis and he told me that's one of the biggest factors in his decision.
"His relationship with the coaching staff is huge for him," said Bennett. "He's a very family orientated person, and the coaches had to be close to him and his family, like they are part of his family. That's the way he's been raised and that's the way he wants to have it. He really likes the Bulls staff."
"When me and Kam speak, he told me he wanted to go to a place that's very family orientated," said Bennett. "He wants to go where the coaches are really going to care about him, going to be genuine, and going to be straight up forward with him. He wants a coach that's going to push him, get everything out of him, and develop him into a great player."
