Melbourne (Fla.) Florida Air Academy wide receiver Sherman Lang made an unofficial visit to South Florida during the weekend for the Bulls' home game with West Virginia. He enjoyed his visit and also took a moment to update his recruitment.
Lang held scholarship offers from Ole Miss and Nebraska earlier in the process, but says that the Rebels and Cornhuskers have backed off in recent weeks. Rutgers, however, still calls and remains interested in the three-star prospect's services.
Lang has set up one official visit, to Florida Atlantic, for Jan. 13.

South Florida is a new team to enter the mix. This past weekend, the 6-foot-2, 175-pounder took in the Bulls' 28-13 loss to the Sugar Bowl-bound Mountaineers.
"I liked watching both teams, South Florida and West Virginia," he said. "The coach that is recruiting me (Bulls offensive line coach Greg Frey) says that he wants to offer me, but that he has to let the head coach look at it first."
Lang played quarterback for his high school team this year. He passed for 935 yards and 12 touchdowns and added seven rushing touchdowns. This followed a junior year in which he caught 27 passes for 430 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Most major programs, however, still see Lang as a wide receiver.
"The only school that's talked to me about playing quarterback is (Division I-AA program) The Citadel," he said.
