The USF staff kept the recruiting momentum going when Colquitt County corner back Johnny Ward committed to USF after the SuperBull camp on Saturday. Ward talks about his commitment, why he chose the Bulls and more.

Shorty after the USF SuperBull camp, Colquitt County corner back Johnny Ward committed to play college for USF.

"Yes sir I committed to USF today," said Ward. "I like the campus and the facilities are just amazing. I have a great relationship with the coaching staff. I can't wait to play for them."  

The 6'0, 165 pound cornerback had other offers from UCF, Middle Tennessee, Miami of Ohio, and South Alabama, as well as other interests before committing to the Bulls.
"I did it today because they've been showing me a lot of love," said Ward. "And I just wanted to make it known that I want to be a Bull!"

As a junior he had 64 tackles, 1 interception, 5, passes defended, 1 forced fumble, 2 fumble recoveries, and 3 sacks

"They said they really like how I play the corner position, and that I'd fit in great with their defensive scheme," said Ward. "Coach Smith and Coach Holtz are great coaches and they definitely know what they're talking about."

Ward talks about how the commitment went down.

"Coach was asking me how I like the place and I said yeah, I love it and want to commit," said Ward. "He was very happy and so was I. Now I just got to go home and tell my mom that I committed."

The Bulls new commit said he's very happy with his choice and thinks that big things are in store for USF.

 "I'm very excited now that I made my choice," said Ward. "I feel they're a program that's on the rise and are going to do very big things in the near future."
