3-star defensive back flips to USF
This week’s efforts by coach Willie Taggart and the USF football coaching staff to elevate the 2015 recruiting class to the top of the AAC were aided by three three-star recruits whom they convinced to flip their commitments to USF.
Defensive back Nate Ferguson of Sickles High School became the 19th and most recent USF commit after he changed his commitment from Eastern Michigan to USF on Monday morning. The 5-foot-9, 183-pound high school senior is the fifth defensive back in the Bulls’ 2015 class.
He joins recruits Malik Vaccaro-Dixon and Chris Barr as the third Florida native in the past week to decide to stay home and play for the Bulls.
With the commitment of Ferguson, USF’s 2015 class is ranked the best in the AAC, according to 247sports.com. The Bulls’ class is ranked 62nd in the nation, one spot ahead of Cincinnati. The class will be finalized on National Signing Day on Wednesday.
