Tampa (Fla.) Jefferson outside linebacker Juwuan Brown becomes the 12th verbal commitment of the 2014 recruiting class for USF.
Juwuan is the sixth Tampa Bay area commit for the Bulls - and is the second outside linebacker verbal commit (Jimmy Bayes). The 6-foot-2, 210-pound prospect has been high on USF since the spring - and a commitment seemed to be inevitable.
Runningthebulls.com broke the story of Brown's commitment.
"I just committed to USF," Brown said. "I'm real committed to my hometown and I don't want to leave Florida. USF showed a lot of love. I love every time I come down - love the atmosphere of the school."
Brown is the second commitment from Jefferson High School - along with Deiondre Porter.
"I'm going to like that a lot," Brown said about playing with his teammate at the next level. "He's a good teammate - he just motivates me. We work good together and all that."
"I've been talking to Coach Reaves a lot - he was the one recruiting me. And the linebackers coach (Raymond Woodie) - they both real cool and straight up with me. The linebacker coach pulled me into his office - he showed me about the linebackers and all that. He said once the two linebackers leave I'll be competing."
It's a big relief for Brown to commit before his senior season.
"It's big. I don't really have to think about it all season - I just know where I want to go. I don't have to worry about any other schools."
"I bring good speed, explosiveness, and I make plays."
