One of the main focuses of the USF football staff has been finding and securing top local athletes, and in an effort to bring you the best recruiting coverage anywhere, USFNation.com has will update you on how the Bulls local prospects are doing. This weeks focus is just over the bridge in Pinellas, where the Bulls have found several gems.
Over the past few years Pinellas County has had it's share of quality D-1 athletes and 2008 is no different. The Bulls have already gotten three commitments from Pinellas County recruits and here's the run-down of last weekend's games involving current USF commits:
Jaquez Jenkins, Lakewood: The 6'2-180 pound S/QB didn't play quarterback due to a strained rotator cuff, but on defense had 8 tackles, a fumble recovery and one interception in Lakewoods 35-13 win over Bayshore. So far this season Jenkins has over 600 yards passing with 12 scores, 300 yrds rushing with 2 scores, and on defense has roughly 25 tackles, 1 int, 1 forced fumble, and one fumble recovered. Jaquez was at the USF/Pitt game with Boca Ciega's Julius Forte & Darius Skinner, and said he saw Adaris Bellamy a few rows down.
Gerard Atkins, Dixie Hollins: The 6-foot-5, 225 pound tightend had two touchdown catches and 86 yards receiving helped lead the Rebels in a 34-28 victory over Seminole. Aktins is an offensive weapon and on defense has 2 picks, one of which he returned for a 99 yard touchdown.
Adaris Bellamy, Dunedin: The brusing back didn't need to do much in Dunedins 24 -6 win over Clearwater, only carrying the ball 10 times for 55 yards, and scored on a 20 yard run in the third. This season Bellamy has over 600 yards rushing with 9 touchdowns.
Other Pinellas prospects:
Juarez Wynn, Northeast: The RB/CB finished with 140 yards on 16 carries and had both of Northeast's touchdowns, including a 63-yarder in the second quarter, and a 6-yard run.
