Notice the first name above: Jimmy Bayes. A 4-star kid that committed to USF early, stayed with them through the entire process, and was the first NLI on the fax machine this morning. THAT'S how you become a fan favorite, folks.

Big Storylines:

Tajee Fullwood was on the fence about going to Cinci, but he chose to stay home.

Marlon Mack showed all that Louisville stuff was just terrible reporting, and he came to Tampa too.

Vincent Jackson Jr.'s Twitter account was all the rage amongst the USF recruitnik faithful, but he gave them a reason to keep following:

The big quarterback everyone wanted also signed, as Quinton Flowers heads to Tampa too.

Tyre McCants had EVERYONE coming after him too, including the biggest of the big boys. He chose USF.

But this was my favorite pic of the day. D'Ernest Johnson, a teammate of Bayes at Immokalee, took this shot as they both signed to come to play at USF:

GET YOUR SEASON TICKETS NOW BULLS FANS!!!

National Signing Day 2014 basically couldn't have gone any better. Denzel Ward could have come here but he had a signing announcement I streamed on my laptop where he pump faked for the USF hat, then chose Syracuse.

As far as rankings, USF is far and away the #1 class in the AAC by all the recruiting services. They're also 39th nationally as of this writing according to 247sports.com, with a TON of P5 schools behind them:

Incredible. Stand up, Bulls Nation. Today is a great day. #DIDSOMETHING

This gives some needed hope to a fan base that's been desperate for something to cheer about. Check out Coach T's Bus!!
