Big East Football Weekly Recruiting Roundup: Huge Week for South Florida
Every Wednesday we'll take a trip around the Big East to see how recruiting is panning out. Whose class is shaping up nicely and who has a lot of work left to do? Your weekly recruiting roundup will help answer just that.
South Florida had a huge week, picking up five commitments since last Wednesday. The standout from the group is 3-star RB Jojo Kemp out of Deland, Florida. Kemp is also good friends with QB Asiantii Woulard, who committed just last week to the Bulls. South Florida also snagged commitments from DB Johnny Ward, DB Darius Whitty, OL Conner Rafferty and DT Bruce Hector. Whitty is another standout in this class, with 3-stars. South Florida has been in need of defensive backs and running backs, so these recruits will be extremely beneficial to this team.
Another program with a big week was Temple, who picked up four recruits that all have stars. Those commits are 3-star LB Buddy Brown, 2-star ATH Jihaad Pretlow, 2-star QB PJ Walker, DT Tyrique Jarrett and 3-star OL Matt Barone.
Pittsburgh picked up a pair of commitments over the last week in K Ryan Winslow and 2-star DB Titus Howard. When picking Pitt, Howard told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, "Everything just felt right for me to make my decision, the coaching staff, the academic stuff they took me through today -- it really just felt like home for me."
Cincinatti and Louisville both snagged one commit this week. The Bearcats with 3-star DB Demetrius Monday and the Cardinals with OL Chandler Bridges. Monday is 5'11" and 185lbs from Mableton, Georgia, while Bridges is a 6'4", 270lb player from Flowery Branch, Georgia.
It's only June, so it's early, but no decommits for the Big East this week.
Louisville had a quiet week, but they still have the No. 1 class in the Big East. ESPN Recruiting Nation Insider Corey Long expects the Scarlet Knights to head to Miami soon, where they should pick up quite a few recruits.
A head coach can make a big impact on a recruit's decision, especially if they believe the coach may leave while they're in school. Dennis Dodd of CBSSports.com released a hot seat ranking for current collegiate head coaches. He has Syracuse's Doug Marrone "On the bubble, feeling pressure." Take from that what you will.
