Ruben Narcisse, a 61-210 pound linebacker from Chaminade-Madonna high school, took an official visit to USF this weekend.

"The visit went great, I loved it. "We went to the stadium and on a cruise the first night, and then went out with the players, saw campus, the dorms, and everything. It was real nice."

I got to meet a lot of the freshmen, some of the linebackers, and met the quarterback, B.J. Daniels. It was real good and I liked it a lot."

Ruben plays linebacker for Chaminade and was hosted my USF linebacker Sam Barrington.

"Sam was real cool, we had fun," said Narcisse. "He was telling me that I was like his little brother."

The Chaminade linebacker was joined by a familiar face as his teammate Hans Louis also went on a visit to USF this past weekend. "He liked it. He liked it a whole lot to."

Narcisse also spent time with Larry Scott, who is his primary recruiter and me the rest of the coaching staff including New Head Coach Skip Holtz.

"I like coach Holtz, he's real nice and like him as a head coach," said Ruben. "He was very honest with me, and I like that. He told me they like me as a player but they are tight and can't offer me just yet."

This weekend Narcisse hoped the weekend visit would lead to a scholarship offer.

"No they haven't offered me at the moment," said Ruben. "They said with a new staff they're in a transition, and are still evaluating things, but told me they let me know later this week."

Ruben has been talking to several schools, including West Virginia and claims an offer from the Mountaineers, but after this weekend has a favorite.

"USF, that's my favorite right now," said Narcisse. "There are a lot of reasons why, but mostly because they seem like a tight family as a football team. With some other colleges, you don't get that. The atmosphere with all the players is like one big family. I liked that, I liked that a lot."

"My favorite part was interacting with the players. All the coaches are nice, and like I said they're all like one big family. I want to go to a place like that, somewhere everybody is united. I'd love to go there!"

This was Rubens first official visit, and right now he's waiting to see if he's going to take a visit this weekend.

"From a scale of a 1-to-10, I'd give it a 10," said Narcisse. "I liked everything about it, and if they offer I'd accept it."
