South Florida junior RB Marlon Mack rushed for 42 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in Saturday's loss to FSU.

Mack suffered through a concussion a few weeks ago, and he didn't look in tip-top shape this afternoon. The Bulls platooned him with D'Ernest Johnson. Johnson ended up almost doubling Mack's yardage output on four fewer totes.

South Florida junior QB Quinton Flowers ran for 159 yards on 18 carries in Saturday's 20-point setback against FSU.

While he was effective on the ground, Flowers was awful inside the pocket outside of two monster plays, with his 84-yard touchdown pass to Rodney Adams being the biggest play of the day for USF. Flower ended up completing 5-of-14 passes for 160 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.

South Florida junior RB Marlon Mack (concussion) rushed for 115 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in Saturday's 45-20 win over Syracuse.

Mack has been dealing with a concussion ever since the opener against Towson. He did not play in last weekend's game against Northern Iowa, but looked no worse for the wear in Saturday's date with Syracuse. The 6-foot, 205-pounder averaged a juicy 12.7 YPC. He will try to build off this in next weekend's showdown with the angry hornet's nest that figures to be Florida State after the latter was blown out by Louisville on Saturday. A year ago, Mack racked up 1,381 rushing yards and eight touchdowns.

South Florida junior RB Marlon Mack (concussion) wore a green contact jersey during Wednesday's practice.

Mack is trucking toward a return to action against Syracuse on Saturday. He was initially laid low by a concussion in the season-opener against Towson two weekends ago. At this point, it would be something of a surprise if the 6-foot, 205-pounder is unable to suit up in two days. Last season, he rushed for 1,381 yards (6.6 YPC) and eight touchdowns.

South Florida junior RB Marlon Mack (concussion) is probable for Saturday's tilt with Syracuse.

Mack was held out of this weekend's game against Northern Illinois after he suffered a concussion in the second quarter of the season-opener against Towson. The 6-foot, 205-pounder looks like he should be good to go in Saturday's showdown against Syracuse, barring an unforeseen setback. Fantasy owners should check in on his status later in the week before locking Mack back into the lineup.

South Florida junior RB Marlon Mack (concussion) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Northern Illinois.

QB Quinton Flowers will shoulder a bigger offensive load against the Huskies. The Bulls will have to role with a platoon of senior Darius Tice and junior D'Ernest Johnson.

South Florida junior RB Marlon Mack (concussion) is questionable for Saturday's game against Northern Illinois.

Mack is undergoing a concussion protocol following a big second-quarter hit that left him dazed during Saturday's 56-20 victory over Towson. If Mack can't go, HC Willie Taggart will replace him with a platoon of senior Darius Tice and junior D'Ernest Johnson. "We're just gonna run our offense," Taggart said. "We always feel like we have a healthy group of running backs back there and guys that we don't have to change anything up if someone goes down."

Virginia redshirt freshman T Grant Polk transferred to USF.

"[Polk is] with our squad now and he will be participating in training camp with us," said HC Willie Taggart. The 6-foot-6, 295-pounder has enrolled in classes, but will not be eligible to compete in any games this season, as he will be forced to sit out the 2016 campaign due to NCAA transfer regulations. Polk was a three-star recruit out of high school for the 2015 cycle.

USF redshirt senior WR A.J. Legree will miss the rest of the season due to a torn ACL, according to Josh Newberg.

Legree appeared in seven games last season and recorded three catches for 24 yards after sitting out the 2014 season once transferring from Kentucky. According to Newberg, Legree and USF will petition for a medical redshirt so the receiver can return in 2017.

South Florida junior RB Marlon Mack "has great open-field moves and the straight-line speed to take away angles down the sideline," writes NFL.com draft analyst Chad Reuter.

The 6-foot, 205-pound enters his junior campaign as a two-time first-team All-American Athletic Conference selection. Mack has logged back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and will surpass that number again, with ease, if he stays healthy.

DT Derrick Calloway, who withdrew from school prior to the 2015 season, will not return to USF in 2016.

Calloway would have provided a huge boost to the USF front, as he was one of the school's top defenders in 2014 as a sophomore. The team left the door open back in 2015, but it seems shut now.

USF received a verbal commitment from four-star 2017 ATH Bruce Judson.

This time last year, Judson was espousing the virtues of Ohio State, going so far as to say that he was "100%" going to stick to his pledge with the Buckeyes. That didn't pan out. The 5-foot-9, 184-pounder backed off from Ohio State after HC Urban Meyer asked him "Who are you?" during a campus visit last summer. Regardless, South Florida earned a huge commitment here. Scout.com refers to him as "[o]ne of the top playmakers in the state of Florida" and notes that he could play running back, slot wideout or corner at the next level.

USF HC Willie Taggart cited junior RB D'Ernest Johnson as one of the team's emerging leaders.

During Taggart's first two seasons with the Bulls, the team went 6-18. They began the 2015 season in similar dismal fashion, slogging out to a 1-3 start. And then, magic. South Florida went 7-2 down the stretch. Taggart credits the likes of the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Johnson for the turnaround. "Those guys that I named [as leaders] are the same guys that decided to come here because they wanted to turn it around," he said. Johnson was named to the Paul Hornung preseason watch list earlier this week. The award is handed out to the most versatile player in the country. Last season, he rushed 71 times for 307 yards, caught 25 passes for 346 yards and racked up a juicy 563 yards via 21 kick returns. That last mark works out to 26.8 yards per return. Marlon Mack is the lead back, here, but Johnson doesn't need 20 carries to make a positive impact.

Four-star ATH Bruce Judson unveiled the list of his top 10 schools.

Judson took to Twitter to make his list public. The 5-foot-9, 184-pounder ticked off Florida, Arizona, TCU, Auburn, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Alabama, Michigan State and UCF as the current ten favorites for his commitment. He took unofficial visits to Florida and Auburn in April. Plus, an unofficial trip to check out Georgia, though the Bulldogs failed to crack his list. Judson had been committed to Ohio State, but backed off that pledge after HC Urban Meyer infamously asked him (possibly joking, possibly not), "Who are you?" last July.
Jun 1 - 2:35 PM

USF AD Mark Harlan told a university Board of Trustees work group that he will continue to examine the possibility of building an on-campus stadium.

We're in the "feasibility study" part of the timeline on this one. Not only is there no timetable for when a final stadium proposal would be ready, there isn't even a timetable for when the feasibility study itself will be finished. And then there is the issue of money. "Apparently these things aren't free," Harlan told reporters, "so we need to really look into all those things and really decide if there's an appetite for it." The Bulls will continue to play at Raymond James Stadium for the foreseeable future.
