You have to hand it to South Florida coach Jim Leavitt. The man can coach and he can recruit. How else would you explain it that he’s able to get a heralded recruit like LeRue Rumph in for an official visit, despite being committed to N.C. State.
“Coach Leavitt is a cool guy,” Rumph, a four-star safety that is 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, said. “He just reminds me a lot of the coaches that have coached me. I liked my visit this weekend a lot. It’s going to give me a lot to think about.”
But rest easy N.C. State fans, Rumph said he’s still committed and plans on checking out the campus this weekend.
“I’m hoping that I go up there and get blown away,” he said. “I hope it shows me why I committed in the first place.”
But if it doesn’t blow him away, Rumph said he will seriously consider USF and maybe also take a visit to Clemson.
”That’d be just in case,” he said.
