Former Wisconsin redshirt freshman S Austin Hudson officially transferred to South Florida.

The move had been in the making for several weeks. It was made official by a USF announcement on Friday. Hudson played in all 14 games as a true freshman last season. He registered 19 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. The two-star recruit in 2014, who will be forced to sit out the 2015 season, will be eligible to play for Bulls HC Willie Taggart in 2016.

Former Wisconsin redshirt freshman S Austin Hudson transferred to South Florida.

Hudson said he left Madison because of "a culture thing." The prospect is from Tampa Bay. "I love being a part of building my hometown team, it’s an exciting next chapter of my career," said Hudson. He registered 19 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble as a freshman. Hudson was a two-star recruit in 2014 who will be forced to sit out the 2015 season.

Bills signed South Florida WR Andre Davis.

Davis (6'1/207) made 30 starts at USF, parlaying 153 catches into 2,136 yards (14.0 YPR) and 17 TDs. He ran 4.60 at his Pro Day, also struggling in the broad (9'10") and vertical (32 1/2") jumps. Davis lacks speed and leaping ability to win outside, and shows a concerning amount of timidness when running over the middle, which would be problematic in the slot. He'll likely go down as a good college player who couldn't cut it in the pros.

Redskins selected USF C Austin Reiter with the No. 222 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Reiter is one of the best athletes among offensive linemen in this class. We wonder if Scot McCloughan has carried Seattle's approach (drafting athletes during day three) from his time spent with the Seahawks. Reiter started 36 games during his final three seasons.

Texans selected South Florida OLB Reshard Cliett with the No. 211 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Cliett (6'2/222) started 27 games in his career, leading South Florida in sacks with six last season and ranking second on the team with 7.5 TFLs. He ran a 4.51 with a 38 1/2" vertical at his pro day. Cliett will have to make a splash on special teams to make the Texans.

USF CB Chris Dunkley is scheduled to visit the Dolphins after completing a visit with the Falcons, according to Greg Auman.

Dunkley is likely a day three selection, but teams are always intrigued by corners with ball skills. Dunkley is a former receiver who converted to corner before his final season of collegiate football. He attended a regional Combine.

USF TE Michael McFarland pieced together a very good pro day workout and could emerge as a late round target.

Per Gil Brandt, ran the 40 in 4.73 seconds with the wind and 4.85 seconds against the wind and added a 35-inch vertical, 9-foot-8 broad jump, 4.4 short shuttle and the three-cone drill in 7.12 seconds. The crop of tight ends is not a large one, and teams will be searching for a possible late round contributor.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that South Florida senior WR Andre Davis "showed off his acceleration" at the Shrine Game.

"Davis showed off his acceleration with two big catches in this game," Rang wrote. "His first came on an underneath route in which he initially caught the ball short of the first down marker. Davis recognized where he was and had to get to, showing a second burst to convert. The second came off a quick slant in which Davis left a few defenders in his wake. It went for a gain of 19 yards, the longest play from scrimmage in an offensively starved contest in which the only touchdown scored came in the closing seconds, giving the East a 19-3 victory." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded Davis as a Rd. 7 or UDFA prospect this summer.

South Florida senior WR Andre Davis caught three balls for 36 yards at Saturday's East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Davis is hoping to sneak into the back half of Day 3, and his showing last week didn't hurt that cause. USF's Offensive MVP this season hauled in 36 receptions for 594 yards and seven touchdowns in 2014. "Davis is an adequately sized receiver with reliable hands but limited deep speed," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote. "He’s a potential late round choice and number five receiver at the next level."

South Florida senior WR Andre Davis will attend the East West Shrine game.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Davis has hauled in 30 receptions for 537 yards, with seven touchdowns on the year. The South Florida prospect missed four games this season due to a bruised sternum, an injury he suffered making a diving catch during the Bulls 36-31 win over Western Carolina. Last season, Davis had a USF season record with 735 receiving yards on a team-leading 49 receptions. Davis, who earned the Offensive MVP Award at the school's annual post-season banquet, garnered a Rd. 7 or UDFA grade from TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline this summer.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline noted that South Florida redshirt senior TE Michael Mcfarland is not playing up to the middle-round draft grade that some scouts were allotting him.

In 2013, McFarland caught 23 balls for 288 yards and a pair of scores, piquing the interest of scouts. 2014's been a down year. Pauline wrote that "McFarland was stamped as a middle round pick by a number of scouts entering the season but has played free agent football." Ouch. We can't really argue with his assessment, though, as McFarland has hauled in just 18 passes for 182 yards this season. McFarland's "not known for his blocking," Pauline pointed out, making the lack of production in the passing game all the more glaring for somebody who is a huge target (6-foot-5, 250-pounds).

USF HC Willie Taggart said the team's offense will transition into taking a more pro-style approach.

USF five starting linemen will average 310 pounds this season, which is 13 more than the same unit checked in at last year. "We’re going pro-style, like you see with the 49ers and Stanford," Taggart told SI's Thayer Evans and Pete Thamel. As the duo points out, Taggart played under Jack Harbaugh at Western Kentucky and coached under Jim Harbaugh at Stanford. USF went 2-10 last year with a "spread" approach.

South Florida sophomore QB Mike White edged out Penn State transfer Steven Bench to win the starting quarterback gig, ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports.

It's a slight surprise, as White went 0-5 in the final five games for the Bulls, throwing only three touchdowns and nine interceptions. To be fair, he was a true freshman being thrown into the fire by head coach Willie Taggart. Bench was 21-of-50 passing with two touchdowns and two interceptions in two starts last year.

South Florida redshirt senior TE Michael McFarland "is a bit of a sleeper," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"McFarland is a big (6-feet, 5-inches/250lbs) tight end with better than average speed but poor production (28 career receptions in three seasons)," Pauline wrote. "He has an upside and is a bit of a sleeper but must pull it together as a senior." The expert grades McFarland as a preseason UDFA prospect.

South Florida senior WR Andre Davis is a potential No. 5 receiver in the NFL, writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Davis had a USF season record with 735 receiving yards on a team-leading 49 receptions last year. "Davis is an adequately sized receiver with reliable hands but limited deep speed," Pauline wrote. "He’s a potential late round choice and number five receiver at the next level." Davis, who earned the Offensive MVP Award at the school's annual post-season banquet, garnered a Rd. 7 or UDFA grade from Pauline.
