This is my first recruiting post and its a good one.  As reported by Rivals.com (Running the Bulls), 247 Sports, and other media, quarterback Quinton Flowers (6′ 203 lbs.) verbally committed to USF today.

Flowers, rated 2-stars by Rivals and 4-stars by 247 Sports (quite the range there) comes from Miami Jackson High School (we all know how talented the Miami area is for recruits).  Coach Taggart and his staff, who are all over the state hosting camps, were able to land the commitment from the talented passer, bringing him in as a quarterback.  Flowers had a lot of offers from big programs like Alabama, but the Bulls were able to land his verbal commitment.

Now while it is exciting to get a recruit committed to USF, remember we went through a little saga last year with a certain quarterback that committed, de-committed and then recommitted several times.  So, we need to scale back the excitement, at least until signing day in February.

This is a huge get for USF and a very interesting commitment for the Bulls.  Looking ahead to next year, with Bobby Eveld leaving, the Bulls would have Steven Bench, Matt Floyd, Mike White, and Flowers all on the roster battling for the starting job.  He would be a huge addition, bringing a great skill set to the quarterback position and making the competition that much better.

UPDATE: Less than 7 hours later after committing to USF, Flowers are reportedly de-committed from USF, his brother expressing he wants to play out of the state.  So, it was fun while it last and a reason I said not to get excited about a kid committing a year away from signing day.
