The South Florida Bulls badly needed a recruiting boost heading into the final preparations for the 2016 season. They got one Wednesday, and in the biggest way.
South Florida landed four new recruits to the Class of 2017 in a single day, led by four-star athlete Bruce Judson, a prospect who was also aggressively recruited by most of the nation’s top programs.
As you may recall, Judson had previously committed to Ohio State, but decided to recant his pledge after Urban Meyer didn’t recognize him on a visit.
Judson, a star for Cocoa, will be joined in Tampa by fellow Floridians Demetri Burch, a fellow athlete prospect from Apopka; Dr. Phillips wide receiver Emare Hogan; and Chaminade-Madonna Prep star receiver Daewood Davis.
Judson, Burch and Hogan all announced their commitment together, donning Bulls hats in unison, as you can see above.
The quartet lifts South Florida’s Class of 2017 to 12 members, meaning that the Bulls gained 33 percent of their next recruiting class in a single day, assuming all four stick with their initial pledges.
If they don’t? Well, July 27 will still go down as a big day for the Bulls, provided Judson alone follows through and sticks around.
