QB Kyle Parker 6'1, 180 (Bartram Trail HS, Jacksonville) – Bulls need to land a QB, Parker looks to be number one on the board early on.

OG Braxton Cave 6'4, 240 (Mishawaka, IN) – Has interest from Notre Dame, Michigan, South Florida and Florida. Seems like one of the recruits USF would normally not have a shot at, however he is coming for an unofficial visit this March.

LB Nigel Carr 6'3 220 (First Coast HS, Jacksonville) – Already offered by USF.

LB Shaq Wilson 6'1, 210 (First Coast HS, Jacksonville) – Has a USF offer and offers from South Carolina and Georgia Tech.

OL Michael Brewster 6'6, 280 (Edgewater HS, Orlando) - One of the top overall prospects in the state of Florida's 2008 class, Brewster played his sophomore season at Lake Highland Prep and will played his junior year at Edgewater. He's already one of the state's best linemen and his best days are still way ahead of him.

CB/WR T.J. Bryant 6', 175 (Lincoln HS, Tallahassee) – Also plays safety. FSU and UF are front runners.

LB/FB Ramon Buchanon 6'1, 190 (Palm Bay HS, Melbourne) - One of the state's top linebacker prospects for the Class of 2008, Buchanon is a tremendous fullback but it's on the defensive side of the ball where he projects in college. He made over 100 stops as a junior and scored three touchdowns in his team's playoff loss. He should get recruited like Reggie Nelson did at Palm Bay a few years ago.

RB/WR Averin Collier 5'11, 195 (Churchville, NY) – Look for USF to recruit the New York/New Jersey area this year. The Monroe County all-star scored 15 touchdowns- nine on receptions, four rushing, and two on kick returns. Nine touchdowns receiving tied a school record. Selected to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle All-Greater Rochester Football Team.

DT Marcus Forston 6'2, 290 (Miami Northwestern HS) - One of the top defensive line prospects in the state of Florida for the Class of 2008, Forston finished the season third on his team (the 6A state champions) in tackles and registered 11 sacks.

S Karnell Hatcher 6'1 185 (Atlantic HS, Delray Beach FL) - One of the top safety prospects in the state of Florida, Hatcher finished his junior season with 65 tackles and one interception.

DE Toby Jackson 6'4, 245 (Griffin, GA) – USF will have to fight GT, UGA and AUB for Jackson. They hope to use the momentum of landing Lawrence McCoy, Dontavia Bogan and Patrick Hampton in their 2007 class.

WR Aldarious Johnson 6'3, 190 (Miami Northwetern) - One of the most talented wide receivers to come out of Florida in many years, Johnson may have been the best wide receiver in the state as a junior. He finished the regular season with 47 catches for 855 yards and 12 touchdowns. He finished the year with 149 yards and two scores in the Class 6A title game.

CB Patrick Johnson 6', 190 (Pompano Beach) – Johnson had a big junior campaign recording seven interceptions and 54 tackles on defense. He recorded 11 total touchdowns on offense. Johnson returned three kick-offs for touchdowns and added 10 rushes for 213 yards.

RB Richard Samuel 6', 190 (Cartersville, GA) – Currently a Georgia commit. Has great vision and balance and runs in traffic extremely well. Rarely brought down by one man and has excellent speed in the open field. Can run with power, but often can beat a player without having to absorb contact. He is also an excellent defender, but he's too good with the ball in his hands to move him to defense full time on the next level. -- Scott Kennedy, Scout.com.

QB/WR Brandon Smith 6'2, 180 (New Brunswick, NJ) – Has offers from Syracuse, Rutgers and Colorado.

WR Marcus Sales 6'2, 185 (Syracuse, NY) - One of the nation's top wide reciver prospects in the Class of 2008. Had 25 catches for 625 yards and nine touchdowns as a sophomore and 33 catches for 600 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior despite missing two games. He averages 23 points, five assists, five blocks and six rebounds a game for CBA's basketball team.

DT Deangelo Tyson 6'2, 275 (Statesboro, GA) – Has interest from FSU, GT, Ole Miss, USF, UF and Auburn.

WR Avis Commack (First Coast Jacksonville) – Offered by USF.

Anthony Hill (Pensacola HS) – Teammate of 2007 signee Terrell McClain. USF is expected to be a leader for Hill. More on him as we gather more info.

WR Kendall Tompkins (Miami Northwestern) – Super quick, great ball skills. Aggressive and attacks the ball while in the air. A slot receiver, difficult to cover one-on-one.
