Tallahassee (Fla.) Florida inside linebacker Tevin Floyd has yet to land his first offer, but he is drawing some interest. One school in particular has shown a lot of interest in the 6-foot-1, 225-pound defender and he paid them a visit this past weekend.
"This past weekend I was at USF," Floyd said. "I think it is a real good football program. Coach (Skip) Holtz preaches a lot about academics and he seems like he is very serious. I like it because I know my parents would like me to go there because they pretty much preach the same thing. I liked the environment."
Since returning home from the visit, Floyd has had contact with a member of Holtz' staff about the possibility of an offer being extended by the Bulls.

"I just got off the phone with Rick Smith," Floyd said. "He told me that I was in the top four of linebackers, but they are only taking two. So he told me that they were going to go back and re-evaluate. He also said he was going to tell the linebackers coach what I told him about how I would like to go to USF. He said they would get in contact with me again in about two more days."
While the Sunshine State prospect is very interested in the Bulls, he said he would likely hesitate to commit if an offer was extended.
"I don't want to rush," Floyd said. "I would really consider it, but I don't think I would take it and commit right off the bat."
USF isn't the only program that wants Floyd on-campus. He has been invited to a Junior Day at an out-of-state school.
"Louisiana-Lafayette just invited me to their Junior Day," Floyd said. "I think I might try to make it out to Louisiana-Lafayette on March 24th."
Floyd had 95 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries as a junior.
