On Monday, South Florida was able to keep a pair of three-star athletes at home in the state of Florida as high school teammates Deundre Pickett-White and Trevon Sands verbally committed to the Bulls.
Pickett-White is a three-star wide receiver that was considered to be a Cincinnati Bearcats lean, but the Miami native decided to stay in-state and play for the Bulls. The 6-foot, 190 pounder is listed as a wide receiver prospect, but played multiple positions including quarterback in high school. In his high school career, Pickett-White threw for over 3,400 yards and 37 touchdowns while also rushing for 1,123 yards and 18 touchdowns.
As Pickett-White’s teammate at Southwest Miami High school, Sands is listed as the 43rd-best athlete in the nation. He played both running back and defensive back in high school. The 5-foot-11, 181-pound athlete chose the Bulls over Akron, Florida Atlantic and Florida International. Sands is currently the highest rated recruit in the Bulls’ 2015 class and projects to play running back once on campus.
South Florida has four verbal commitments in their 2015 class, which ranks 30th in the nation and No. 1 overall in the AAC. The two other commits are three-star running backs Karan Higdon and Marquise Bryant.
