'07 Recruiting Class Predictions

Here are our predictions on South Florida's 2007 recruiting class. Get a position by position breakdown of how the class fills out. Also find out who will be among the last minute additions! Only on USFNation.com

Quarterback:

Alton Voss- 100% committed. He will be the only QB taken in this year's class. He has all the athletic tool, just needs some polishing. Voss also has the ability to play in the defensive secondary.

Runningback:

Mike Ford- 100% committed. He is also enrolled in classes and will be able to participate this spring. USF finally landed "the big one" with Mike Ford. A pro-style back that couldn't come at a better time. Grothe was forced to run more than his body is capable of, but with a back like Ford to balance things out, Grothe can concentrate more on putting up yards through the air rather than on the ground.

Josh Bellamy- 100% committed. Bellamy was a great runner at Boca Ciega, he also was the starter in this years Pinellas County all star game. Bellamy will start out at RB, but could be moved to WR or punt returner.

Fullback:

Richard Kelly- 100% committed. Kelly is one of the most exciting players to watch in this years class. He has great size, at 6-foot and 240 pounds Kelly still runs a 4.7 forty. One of the best pickups in this years class.

Wide Receiver:

Carlton Hill- 100% committed. Hill is listed as WR commit, but has a better chance to work in with the saftey's. If Hill can utilize his speed and strength on the defensive side of the ball he could make a significant impact.

Patrick Richardson- 100% committed. With how picky USF is at this position this year it says a lot about how highly they think of Richardson. At 6-foot-1 185 pounds Richardson runs a 4.4 40, he'll most likely redshirt due to the current depth at this position, otherwise he would probably see early playing time.

Dontavia Bogan- 100% committed. Bogan is a "slash" type player who could also see time on defense and special teams.

Kevin Williams- 100% committed. Problem with Williams is his grades. It looks like he'll have to attend JUCO for at least one season in order to become eligible at South Florida.

Tight End:

Kavenski McGee- 100% committed. Just when it looked like USF wouldn't take a tight end in this class, they go out and find a gem. Size- 6'4, 245 and speed- 4.7 40 time, makes McGee a match up problem for defenses. Cedric Hill was supposed to be that guy, but he hasn't added the weight and therefore plays more of a WR/TE position.

Mike McGowan- 90% chance for USF. Originally McGowan said he would not accept a gray shirt from the Bulls. However, USFNation is hearing that things have changed, he talked it over with his dad and decided USF will be his school of choice.

Offensive Line:

Lawrence McCoy- 100% committed. McCoy is the ideal lineman USF is looking for, athletic, strong and has room to grow. Coach Frey may have left, but he sure helped USF by landing McCoy before splitting for West Virginia.

Sampson Genus- 100% committed. Genus is a monster in the middle. He benches over 400 pounds and has great feet. He'll probably redshir this year, you'll definitly hear from him in the next few years.

Jatavious Jackson- 55% chance for USF. He will choose between FSU, WVU, Clemson and USF at 3:30 on signing day. It's hard to get a good read on this one. A week or two ago I'd say there was only about a 20% shot, but with him waiting so long FSU and Clemson might be full by tomorrow. This is the most interesting one to watch.

Thomas Edenfield- 80% chance for USF. The Bulls were on him early, then fell off. Leavitt made an in-home visit with him two weeks ago and now it looks like USF has him. He'll decide tomorrow morning at school.

Kevin McCaskill- 100% committed. Part of USF's class last year, McCaskill failed to qualify. He has already enrolled and will participate in spring practice.

Defensive Line:

Terrell McClain- 100% committed. One of the recruits USF was on from the start. McClain has the size the Bulls were looking for coming into this offseason. He could be one of the few recruits from this class to see immediate playing time.

Darren Powe- 100% committed. Probably the most underrated player in this year's class. Already at 6'3 237, Powe is a tireless worker and will come in this summer in superior shape.

Kyle Dampier- 100% committed. Another big boy, very athletic at 6'3 275 Dampier could also play on the offensive line.

Jeremiah Warren- 100% committed. Failed to qualify last year, he is currently enrolled at USF. Look for Warren to play mainly on the offensive side of the ball.

Claude Davis- 100% committed. After all the rumors Davis made his visit to USF and confirmed with USFNation that he is solid. Davis was the first commit of the '07 class and one of the best. Davis will be a monster coming off his defensive end position for years to come.

David Fonua- 100% committed. Fonua failed to qualify last year, he is currently enrolled at USF and will compete in spring drills.

Patrick Hampton- 100% committed. Hampton was another one that came on late. A few weeks ago it looked like Hampton might end up at Auburn, but after his visit Hampton decided USF will be his home. He is fast and athletic, could be moved to outside linebacker.

Patrick Grant- 70% chance for USF. Grant is one of the top defensive prospects in the state. He was originally committed to Nebraska, things went south with the two and now he's leaning toward USF. Louisville and Iowa are also battling for Grants LOI. He'll make his decision on signing day at school.

Corrian Garrison- 85% chance for USF. Garrison will choose between USF and WVU on signing day. The two Big East rivals have been competing all year for different recruits, this is one battle that USF will probably win.

Linebacker:

Calvin Sutton- 100% committed. An absolute steal for USF. Most considered him, Big 3 talent but somehow he flew under the radar and got scooped up by the Bulls.

Donte Spires- 100% committed. With the loss of Nicholas and St. Louis it is good the staff is bringing in someone with experience to help ease the transition. Spires is expected to play right away.

Defensive Backs:

Charlton Sinclair- 100% committed. Here's another one the staff liked since April and closed on months later. Sinclair plays a smashmouth style from his safety position, almost like having another linebacker on the field.

Tyson Butler- 100% committed. A great RB in high school, Butler also has the potential to be a lock-down corner. With the acquisition of Bellamy and Ford, Butler's best option will be corner.

Quenton Washington- 100% committed. Washington is another hidden gem in this year's class. Caught behind his teammates hype (Noel Divine), Washington quietly committed to the Bulls early in the season before putting up huge offensive and defensive numbers.

Kickers:

Michael Taylor- 30% chance for USF. Taylor was offered a grey shirt, but will most likely choose Troy if they offer him a full scholarship.
