Louisville Commit Visits The Bulls

When the South Florida Bulls hosted the Louisville Cardinals this past Saturday, Cardinal commit George Rushing was in attendance to check out Willie Taggart's program in the AAC matchup. How solid is Rushing's commitment? USFNation has all the details.

After a two game winning steak in the American Athletic Conference over Cincinnati and Connecticut, South Florida took a step back over the weekend and got embarrassed in front of their home crowd at the hands of Louisville, 34-3.

One prospect that was in attendance to check out Willie Taggart's program was Louisville wide receiver commit, George Rushing. USFNation caught up with the Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Cardinal Gibbons wide receiver on his time spent in Tampa Bay.

"The visit went awesome," Rushing said. "I like what the coaching staff is trying to do. I love coach (Willie) Taggart, coach (David) Reeves, and coach (Eric) Mathis - it was a really nice experience. I came there for the game on Saturday and came back Sunday morning. We went over a bunch of schemes and stuff like that. I like what they're trying to do with the program. I loved my experience there at USF."

There's a certain USF commit that was recently advertising the Bulls to Rushing - trying to get him to flip his commitment to stay instate.

"I just played (Quinton) Flowers two weeks ago," Rushing said. "We're in the middle of the game and he came up and talked to me about USF. I've been talking to him a lot."

With a few months until signing day, several schools have kept the heat on the Cardinal Gibbons receiver.

"South Florida, LSU, Missouri, Pittsburgh, Wisconsin, Utah, Washington State and a couple other schools have been on me."

Is Rushing still fully committed to Louisville?

"Yeah, I am."

On the year, Rushing has caught 40 passes for 564 yards and 13 touchdowns for Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons.
