Philip Sylvester RB, Marianna- USF has a lot of interest in Sylvester. He will attend the camp this weekend but will not participate. He basically just wants to visit. It will be his first trip to Tampa and he seemed excited about it.
Last season he rushed for over 1,300 yards and 14 scores, he also had 3 kick returns for touchdowns. This summer Sylvester has been working hard on his strength and speed. He was invited to the FSU camp last month and said he had a strong showing. As of now he has no offers but is getting interest from Maryland, Florida State, South Carolina and USF. He said Coach Gregory sends him letters about once a week.
Rudell Small RB, Trinity Catholic- Small is best known for being the guy who gets the hand offs from John Brantley. However, he is starting to get out of Brantley's shadow. USF offered the 5-foot-10, 190 pound back before the sling and shoot camp. While he was there he toured the campus and the facilities. He commented to me that it was one of the nicest facilities he's seen.
Last season he had 14 touchdowns and is frequently compared to an Emmitt Smith type back. As of now he doesn't have a top 5. He also said he will take all of his visits before deciding and USF will definitely be one of his three officials.
Janarous Jenkins RB & Casey Hopson S, Pahokee- Both kids are on USF's radar. I talked with each of them and neither had strong feelings for USF, but their coach told me they have been getting attention from the coaches and he thinks South Florida would be a good fit. He also said its early and they are waiting on all their offers to come in. This looks to be a typical case with these two, they both want to go to "the U", but when the attention they want isn't there they will begin to really evaluate their options. Remember these names in December.
