USF Moves Up Walters List After Visit

Following an imposing 38-7 preseason victory over East Lake High School on Friday evening, Manatee (FL) running back Trevon Walters took some time out of his busy schedule to visit the nearby South Florida Bulls Saturday afternoon and caught up with Trevon for the latest.

It's been a great past few days for Manatee (FL) running back Trevon Walters, who's ranked as the #62 best running back in the nation by Fox Sports Next. Walters and his Manatee High School team took down East Lake High Friday evening with an impressive display of talent on display on each of the sidelines for the Sunshine State schools, 38-7.

After a good night's rest, Walters took trip to Tampa to visit South Florida and see how he'd fit into the program that fellow Manatee alumni Willie Taggart installed in Tampa Bay.

"The visit went good. That was actually my first time talking to them again besides the time I went up there over the summer," said Walters. "I like the facilities, it's nice and I like the area. Yesterday, we were actually at Raymond James Stadium, and if I went there, that's the field I'd actually play on."

With the Bulls previously dipping into Manatee, securing a commitment from offensive lineman, Michael Galati and Walters enjoying his visit on Saturday, the Bulls now have a few things in their favor.

Prior to making his trip to Tampa on Saturday, Minnesota was ahead of the race for Walter's services. Fast forward 24 hours later, and that may no longer be the case for the Manatee star.

"I haven't really talked to them much over the summer, but when I saw the coaches yesterday, they showed me a lot of love, they really did," said Walters. "So yeah, the visit moved them (USF) up."

The 5-11, 194 lb. running back states that the same trio of schools are sticking out to him, which include USF, Minnesota, and Missouri, stating all three are equal in the race for his services.

"Those are my top three schools," said, Walters. "As of right now they are in no particular order and they're all equal."

Trevon has a pair of visits set up for the Fall for Toledo (9-14) and Minnesota (9-28).
