Pompano Beach (Fla.) Blanche Ely wide receiver Kenneth Rawls claims a new offer from USF. Rawls attended the USF Satellite Camp in Miami a few weeks ago and he reportedly picked up the offer following his performance.
It's the second BCS offer according to the 6-foot-3, 180-pound wideout. Minnesota was his first major offer and Rawls has history with the Gophers.
"Those are my best standout offers," said Rawls. "I'm hoping to get bigger offers from schools like Ohio State and Wisconsin."
Yesterday, at the Clear Vision, Clear Dreams camp in West Palm Beach, Fla. Rawls was sporting Minnesota socks.
"My cousin (Tyrone Carter) is a former player down there, he won the Jim Thorpe award. He always calls me about Minnesota," noted Rawls. "I actually took an unofficial there a couple of weeks ago. The place is beautiful and the campus is great."
He grew up a big fan of the Miami Hurricanes. The tall split end participated in the Al Golden Summer Camp and he did his best to land an offer. If the 'Canes offer he would likely commit on the spot.
"I'm from Florida, so a lot of us are Miami fans. The campus is nice," remarked Rawls. "I watched Phillip Dorsett, Travis Benjamin, and Tommy Streeter and a lot of those guys. I look up to them."
Western Michigan does a good job communicating with Rawls and the Broncos are recruiting him the hardest. He has plans to go up there in two weeks for an unofficial visit.
Charles Hafley is the head coach at Ely and is assisting Rawls with the recruiting process. Hafley is an Ely alum and went onto play four years at Clemson from 1998-2001.
