South Florida badly needs depth at quarterback, and the Bulls just got a commitment from an in-state signal-caller.
Stevie Weatherford, who's from Land O'Lakes, Fla., told the Bulls of his decision on Friday morning, according to the St. Petersburg Times. If the name sounds familiar, it's because he's the younger brother of former Florida State quarterback Drew Weatherford.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder threw for 2,052 yards and 27 touchdowns with just five interceptions as a junior. He was also considering Cincinnati and East Carolina and had drawn some interest from South Carolina.
ESPN's Scouts Inc. ranks Weatherford as the 41st-best quarterback in his class.
The Bulls had only one scholarship quarterback, starter B.J. Daniels, available this spring. Incoming freshman Jamius Gunsby will add some depth this summer, but clearly South Florida needs more bodies at the position.
