"I committed to USF, because I liked the atmosphere and I knew it was the right time and right fit."
Steve Jacques is a 6-foot-4, 280 pound offensive guard from South Broward High School. He has always expressed interest in USF, but when he committed to Auburn back in September, most people thought he was gone. Except for South Florida coach Larry Scott, who continued to recruit Steve, which in the end proved to be the deciding factor.
"I didn't have a relationship with the Auburn staff after the coaching change. They still haven't signed an offensive line coach." Adding, "Coach Scott and I have a great relationship and I feel like home here (at USF)."
After seeing the Ryne Giddins commitment, Jacques said he started thinking that USF would be a great place for him. Now that he's a commit, he says he'll turn the tables and start doing a little recruiting himself. He's already got a target that he'll be having a talk with soon.
"My buddy Shane Gordon, I'm going to have a talk with him. We have a good recruiting class right now and it could be a great one."
Steve tells USFNation that he's committed 100% to the Bulls.
"I'm going to sign with USF on signing day, no surprises."
Jacques is fully qualified, USFNation will have more on Jacques and the rest of the visitors from this weekend in the coming days.
