TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes that "area scouts really like" South Florida senior S Jamie Byrd.

The former juco transfer from Iowa Western Community College had an impressive season in his first year for the Bulls. The 5-foot-11, 184-pound Byrd earned Defensive MVP honors for UCF, recording 95 tackles (71 solo),finishing 10th in the AAC, averaging 7.9 tackles per game.

The 2014 four-star recruit signed with Stanford and was with the team through October, when he decided to transfer to USF. Because he completed classes at his former school, an appeal for immediate eligibility was necessary.

"Recruiting has been surprisingly pedestrian under Taggart, as well. And it's not as if the AAC has been filled with great teams the past two seasons." Taggart, who is from the area, is 6-18 in two seasons.

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.
