Coach Taggart is continuing his hard work as he lands the 7th commitment of the 2014 recruiting class, just days after landing number 6. (Picture credit: http://www.orlandosentinel.com)

Over the weekend, USF landed their 6th commitment in Quinton Flowers, but in just a few hours, he backed away from that commitment.  However, the Bulls re-landed their 6th commitment and just today landed their 7th with a local star. 

On June 15th, USF landed DT/OL Bruno Reagan out of Clarksville, Tennessee (from Rivals.com).  The 3-star talent (6’3″ 288 lbs.) plays on both sides of the ball, but will switch permantely to the offensive side of the ball and will work at guard for the Bulls.  Coach Taggart and staff have been bolstering the offensive line with big, athletic lineman that can not only pass block, but open up holes in the run game.  Reagan hits the bill for the big, athletic offensive lineman that USF is looking for.  It is good to note that Bruno is also a wrestling and judo champ, making him even more awesome.

After Reagan, the Bulls added their 7th commitment today (per BHSN and Rivals.com) is 3-star quarterback Chase Litton.  Litton, the 6’6″ 200 lbs. signal caller out of Wharton School here in Tampa is the newest Bull and adds a ton of talent to the quarterback position.  For the past few years, Holtz and staff really struggled to recruit quarterbacks to bolster the position. Now with the commitment of Litton, the arrival of Steven Bench and true freshman Mike White, the position is getting better (once Litton signs in February of course).

Now once again, we can’t get too excited and need to scale it back a bit with the new commitments.  We saw how fast things change when Flowers de-committed just hours after verbally committing to USF.  We will wait to party for the new commits till signing day next year, but till then, we should smile to see how much work Coach T and staff are doing out there.
