The South Florida Bulls coaching staff has been on the road during the month of May and they've been visiting some familiar territory. Last year they landed center Kevin McCaskill from Godby and this year they have already extended a scholarship offer to his younger brother Keith McCaskill. The younger McCaskill played defensive end last year and put up some pretty big numbers. At 6-and-a-half 238 pound the little brother racked up 95 tackles, 8 sacks, 12 tackle for losses, 3 forced fumbles and 2 fumble recoveries. However, this year he plans to switch to linebacker because he says that's where he sees himself playing on the next level.
"Last year I played defensive end, but I'm playing linebacker next season." Adding, "I run a 4.7 forty, and I've been working a lot on my footwork."
Although he put up outstanding numbers for a junior, McCaskill still only has one offer and that's from USF.
"Coach Leavitt actually came to my house a few weeks ago and offered me in person."
As of now he says the Bulls are at the top of his list, but he's not ready to commit just yet. After watching the recruiting process play-out with his brother, Keith says he'll see what offers come in before making any decisions. He also says the fact that Kevin is there won't play a big role, but I wouldn't be too sure of that.
"Everybody thinks it will be a factor, but I don't think so." When asked how close the too are Keith replied, "Oh we're real real close. When he leaves it will be the longest we've ever been apart."
In the end Kevin wants what is best for his younger brother, but he openly admits he would love to be playing along side him as a Bull. Kevin is also letting his brother tag-along in two weeks when he comes to Tampa for freshman orientation.
"I've never been down to USF," adding "it will be a good chance to check-out the school."
After Keith gets back from dropping his brother off at college he will start training for next season, and because of the position change he will be doing lots of agility drills including jump rope, cone drills, dot drills and some sled work. He will also be attending a team camp in Valdosta, the Down and Dirty camp and possibly the Alabama camp.
