One of the priorities of this year's class is landing a solid group of wide receivers. One of the early targets is Sterling Griffin out of Monsignor Pace down in the Miami area. The Bulls recently offered the 6-foot-2, 175 pound receiver.

"USF offered me two weeks ago." Said Griffin, "They are the first team to offer me."

The first, but surely not the last. In his junior season, Sterling caught 46 balls for 910 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also plays on the defensive side of the ball where he totaled 55 tackles and 2 INT's at the safety position.

"I play defense in high school, all the colleges are recruiting me as a receiver."

Even though Griffin lives four-hours from Tampa he says he's familiar with the city and the football program. Griffin has a cousin that attends USF as a student.

"I've been following USF, plus I went to the team camp in Tampa my sophomore year. I went with Miami Norland, that was before I transferred to Pace."

"My cousin and I talk about the Bulls a lot. He tells me about the games, and says they are a rising team. I see they got a lot of good players and they got a top cornerback in the combine (Mike Jenkins), they are putting some guys in the league."

Growing up Griffin says he was a fan of football, not a particular team.

"I like to watch teams that run a spread offense like Florida or Tennessee."

Griffin is a self described Play-Maker who is looking to find a good academic school with a coaching staff he can relate to.

"My favorite route is the post corner. I'll run anything though, just put the ball in my hands and I'll make a play."

Sterling Griffin is being recruited by tight ends coach Larry Scott from South Florida. He currently has a 3.5 GPA and an 810 on his first try at the SAT.
