Big Time Center Eyeing Bulls

With the Bulls starting center leaving this year, there are not many recruits out there that have the potential to come in and play right away. However Kevin McCaskill from Tallahassee is talented enough to do so. Read on to find out his top 5 and what he thinks of USF.

The offensive line has played surprising well this year. One of the reasons for the solid play has been John Miller at center, but he is a senior and he will be leaving a gapping hole in the middle. Who could fill this spot? Kevin McCaskill of Godby in Tallahassee (FLA) would be a guy who could possibly come in and compete as a freshman. The 6-foot-3 285 pound giant, started all four years on a team that is always one of the best in the state.

Recently McCaskill has taken a liking to South Florida.

"I really didn't consider USF until about the last month or so."

McCaskill says he talks mostly with offensive line coach Greg Frey.

"He has been calling me recently" adding, "we talk about what's going on with the team and about the depth on their offensive line."

With only about two months left till signing day, McCaskill has 10 offers but is only seriously considering 5 schools.

"In no particular order they are Louisville, USF, WVU, Auburn and Marshall. The only schools on that list I don't have an offer from is Auburn and West Virginia."

As for visits, the only one he has set up is with USF on January 20th. He may also set one up for next weekend with another school but as of today there are no plans to do so.

The factors for making his decision will come down to playing time, academics and how he relates to the current players on the team. This is good news for USF because he would probably be near the top of the depth chart as a freshman. He would be a great acquisition for the Bulls, he's big and strong but also has great athleticism. He can push around defensive lineman but he's also great at getting down field and finishing off the linebackers. Adding McCaskill could be the beginning of an excellent O-line class if they also keep left tackle Daron Rose at home.
