Michael White ends day with USF pledge

It didn't take long for new USF coach Willie Taggart to make an impact on the Bulls' recruiting efforts.

Just hours after his introductory press conference in Tampa, and minutes after Michael White's (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./University School) state championship game was finished, he offered the quarterback a scholarship. White didn't waste any time in accepting it.

"They were excited about my chance to have an impact on their program," White said of the USF coaching staff's response to his decision.

White directed University School to a 24-17 win in Orlando, Fla., over Madison County to win the FHSAA 3A State Championship earlier in the day.

USF now makes his first FBS scholarship offer.
