"My visit was real good, everything went as planned," said Dunedin's Adaris Bellamy. "The school was everything I thought it would be. Everybody is real down to earth, and it's really the place I want to be."
The Bulls are in the midst of their best recruiting class ever, and it all started when Bellamy became the first USF commit of the class. He was a highly sought after recruit , and his early verbal showed other top recruits that South Florida is a player on the big stage of college football.
"When I first visited Tampa, I basically fell in love with USF." Said Bellamy, "I met with the staff, saw the facilities and knew this is where I want to go."
"There's nothing that I really didn't know about USF already. It basically just reassured me about my choice. I'm real excited to get up there."
During the visit Adaris was hosted by a former teammate, USF WR Theo Wilson.
"It was great hanging out with Theo, we've been friends for a long time. Having him there made it seem like home."
Bellamy roomed with Northeast's CB/RB Juarez Wynn, and was joined this weekend with several other Pinellas commits in Jaquez Jenkins, Gerard Atkins, and was excited to meet a bunch of his future classmates.
"It felt good to meet all the other commits. We all have the same attitude and are all very excited about getting in there. I have no doubts about committing there."
During the weekend Bellamy found out that Coach Gregory who was his and several Pinellas prospects primary recruiter would longer be the Bulls OC.
"It doesn't really matter that much to me, I chose USF because I love everything about it," said Bellamy. "None of the recruits I'm friends with have even discussed it. It's hasn't been a topic at all."
Adaris has been to more USF practices and games then he can remember, but got to really see the school, hang out with the players, and had a great meeting with Coach Leavitt.
"My one on one with Leavitt went great. We're basically on the same page. He told me a lot of things that I wanted to hear and things I needed to hear. It went very well."
With the football season over, and signing day just around the corner, Bellamy says he's relieved and can focus on getting ready to the next level.
"I'm just going to train and work on getting my grades up higher. They're getting better, but I need to keep working on it. My focus now is getting ready for the next level as a Bull."
