Bulls a favorite for 2014 stand out WR

Gabe McClary is an emerging 2014 receiver at Winter Park (FL) that has been getting attention and already has two big time early offers. The 6-foot-3, 193 pound prospect talks about the offers, his early favorites, and more.

Winter Park is a school that has been churning out top prospects recently, and the next one could be 2014 standout Gabe McClary, who competed with his team at the last USF Sling & Shoot.

"The tournament was real good even though it got cut short we did pretty well," said McClary. "We got a lot of good work in with our back up QB Jeff Whitted, who did great. I think I had a good weekend as well.

In terms of recruiting, creating a pipeline is always a good thing, and that's what the USF staff is creating at talent-rich Winter Park, a school that has been churning out top prospects.

Last year it was 4-star receiver Dvario Montgomery, who signed and was an incoming USF freshman this summer. This year it's 4-star QB Asiantii Woulard, who is commit to the Bulls.

The next top prospect to come out of Winter Park is McClary, a rising junior who plays both wide receiver and safety for the Wildcats, but is project on the offensive side of the ball.

"I play both but I definitely see myself as more of a receiver," said McClary. "I had 30 catches for 364 yards and scored three touchdowns."

Things are going good for the 6-foot-3, 190 pound prospect who has two early offers.

"I got to offers from USF and North Carolina," said McClary. "I received both in May, and I feel really blessed about it.

Just as the Bulls staff was the first to offer Montgomery and Woulard, they were also the first to offer McClary, who was thrilled to get that offer."

"It felt great to get that first offer and it was very surprising," said McClary. "Mainly because I was only a sophomore and had a boot on when I got it, so I was very surprised and thrilled to get it."

McClary had a chance to check out the Bulls campus and facilities and liked what he saw.

"The school is really nice and I love the campus," said McClary. "I like the new receiver Coach Pathon. He said he's real excited about me, and can't wait to see me play my junior year. He's new there, but so far he seems like a really nice guy and a really good coach."

With one of his former teammates in Montgomery already with the Bulls and his current quarterback committed to USF, McClary said that means something to him.

"Yeah it does because me and Dvario are real close and Asiantii is our quarterback, so it would be like family to go to South Florida."

It's still early in the process, but the 2014 standout said he already has a short list of schools that he likes.

"I definitely like South Florida, also Florida and OSU are on me heavy, and they're great schools too."
