Runningthebulls.com has confirmed that Manatee defensive tackle Derrick Calloway has officially signed with the Bulls. The fact that the touted recruit hails from Willie Taggart's alma mater may not be a coincidence. Calloway's Coach Joe Kinnan, who also coached Taggart, has been praising USF and its new coach since WT's hire.
The four-star recruit, who was previously committed to Louisville, reportedly switched to USF in January after meeting with Taggart and taking an official visit to the school. Before his verbal commitment, Calloway had supposedly eliminated the Bulls from contention, but Coach Taggart, Raymond Woodie, and team worked extra hard to get the recruit to reconsider.
The 6-foot-1, 310 pound recruit is ranked 18th in his position in the country by Rivals.com, and is expected to make a big impact for the Bulls defense in the fall due with his physicality.
