It didn't take long for new USF coach Skip Holtz to land his first commitment to the 2010 recruiting class. And he's a big one.
Jake Kaufman, a 6-foot-9, 330-pound offensive tackle from Brick Township, N.J., decided during his campus visit to Tampa this weekend that he want to be a Bull.
St. Petersburg Times.
He picked the Bulls over some impressive offers, and his other visits were to Florida, Georgia, Miami and home-state Rutgers.
Kaufman drives two hours each day to attend a private school in Jersey City -- St. Peter's Prep.
What drew Kaufman to USF?
"I said to myself, 'I don't want to go to a Big Ten school anymore,' " he said. "I want to go somewhere warm in Florida."
