USF held a one-day skills camp on Monday for players looking to learn a few things and impress the staff. One player who came in looking for an offer was T.J.

T.J. Fleeton, QB Daphne – A 6'2, 215 pound prospect who's listed as a pro-style but said he's a dual threat that likes to sit back in the pocket and throw. The teammate of Eric Lee has a few small offers, but told me he would love to get one from USF.

As a junior Fleeton threw for 1199 yards on 93 of 148 passing (.628) with 9 TD's against 3 interceptions

Daphne's T.J. Fleeton, a pro-style quarterback from Daphne, Al, came to the USF skills camp to improve his game and hopefully impress the Bulls staff.

"It was a great experience, and I learned a lot," said Fleeton. "Coach Fitch taught me a lot and I learned how to improve my steps my footwork, and be a better quarterback.

Fleeton came in early to tour the campus and was very impressed.

"The campus was just beautiful, I'd love to be able to come down here to play and live here, it's really a beautiful place to be."

The 6'2, 215 pound prospect is listed as a pro-style quarterback, but Fleeton said that's not entirely true.

"I consider myself a duel-threat QB," said Fleeton. "But mainly I like to sit back in the pocket, make my reads and throw the ball."

On the recruiting front Fleeton just started receiving college offers.

"I've got Louisiana Lafayette, Jacksonville State, and Alabama A&M," said Fleeton. "I'm also getting interests from USF, FIU and other schools though."

The Daphne standout said he has a short list of schools that stand out to him.

"USF for one, Jacksonville State, and FIU," said Fleeton. "The USF coaches said they liked me a lot, and may offer me a scholarship."

Fleeton talked about why he's high on USF.

"I like the campus, how academically they are, and the coaching staff and just the team period," said Fleeton. "There's nothing here not to like."

The Alabama prospect was also teammates with USF freshmen defensive end Eric Lee, who tells him a lot of good things about USF.

"I'm friends with Eric and he just tells me how good of a school it is," said Fleeton. "He really likes the staff and is real happy here. He said it's a great place to be."
