Kevin Williams – Gibbs The former Gibbs HS cornerback/ receiver was to join USF this spring after earning a qualifying score on the ACT exam. However, in a suprising turn of events, he's not with the team just yet. After discovering a glitch in his transcripts, Williams is not currently enrolled at USF, and won't be this spring.  After the discovery that Williams was missing a semester of Spanish, he says that USF placed him at the City College of San Francisco to complete it. "I'm sure what happened, I though I was set, but they said I have to go here for a semester then join them in the summer."


Josh Bellamy – RB Boca Ciega HS – There was a lot of talk of the Gators and other schools trying to swoop in and pluck Bellamy lately. Bellamy who recently took his official visit to USF, said schools are calling but not to worry. 

"My visit to USF was good, it was great, I really enjoyed it, I really liked seeing the school, the facilities all of it." Said Bellamy, and then added that his highlights were "Playing video games and hanging out with the guys." Bellamy's host was Keeley Dorsey. "He was nice, I didn't know him well but we talked some." 

As to Grades Bellamy still has some work to do to get eligible.

"I've got a 2.5 GPA, and I got a 750 on the SAT, but I need to get an 800, I take it again this weekend. I've been studying, working on my English and math." 

To stay in shape Bellamy runs track, the 200-meter, and the 100-mete, and his favorite the 4x100 relay 

What of the rumors of other schools trying to come in late?

"Schools were calling especially Florida, but I'm set with my decision." 

Are you taking any more visits?

"No, I'm done with visits, and I'm excited for signing day, and to get to campus."



Joe Jones – RB South Broward - With addition of 4-star recruit Mike Ford, plus 3 star Tyson Butler, and 3 star FB Richard Kelly one might wonder how this affects the recruiting Joe Jones. The answer is that the Bulls are still on Jones who just visited Temple last week. 

"I went to Temple last week, it went good, I liked everything it was nice."

They were talking real good, talking about me playing for four years, and going up there and changing the program." 

Jones says schools recruiting him the hardest are USF, Iowa, Temple, FIU, buts says he has no real leader right now 

" I'm still talking to USF, and Coach Franks came by and visited me this week. We talked about the running back situation, with Mike Ford, and that other running back that committed. Stuff like that." 

What are your plans for the next two weeks?

"I'd like to see Iowa, USF, and FIU, I was going to see one of them this week, but I'm taking the SAT this weekend instead, I need to get that in order" 

With only two weeks left and three schools vying for visits, are you going to schedule more then one school in a week?

"Yeah I can probably take one, and probably take FIU during the week." 

What about the last week?

I'm not sure right now, I'm still scheduling visits but it's probably going to be either USF or FIU or Iowa."
