 Gerry Bohanon, South Florida, Player News


  USF pulled off its biggest portal coup yet Sunday, landing a commitment from Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon. The starter for 12 games last season, including the Bears' 21-7 Sugar Bowl win against Mississippi, Bohanon made a visit to Tampa this weekend after previously visiting Missouri. He also had generated interest from Oklahoma, Georgia Tech and Liberty. National recruiting analyst Mike Farrell recently named Bohanon the best QB remaining in the portal. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining. "It was USF because I believed in Coach (Jeff) Scott, I believe in that staff, I believe in everything they're doing right now," Bohanon, a 6-foot-2 1/2, 220-pound dual threat, said Sunday evening.

Barely used his first three seasons at Baylor, Bohanon broke out in 2021, throwing for 2,200 yards, 18 touchdowns and only seven interceptions while helping lead Baylor to the Big 12 title. An All-Big 12 honorable mention, he didn't throw a pick the first six games of the year. He missed the regular-season finale and Big 12 title game with a hamstring injury, but returned for the Sugar Bowl. Though not 100 percent, he winced his way through the game, totaling 61 yards and two touchdowns in the triumph. - Tampa Tribune

  Former Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon announced that he has committed to USF after entering the transfer portal nearly two weeks ago. Bohanon decided to transfer after Baylor coach Dave Aranda chose sophomore Blake Shapen as the starting quarterback following the end of spring drills. The deadline to enter the transfer portal was May 1 to be eligible for the 2022 season. As a fourth-year junior, Bohanon threw for 2,200 yards and 18 touchdowns while rushing for 323 yards and nine scores in 12 starts for the Bears in 2021. After Bohanon went down with a hamstring injury in the 11th game against Kansas State, Shapen stepped in as the starting quarterback and led the Bears to a regular-season ending win over Texas Tech followed by a win over Oklahoma State in the Big 12 championship game. - Waco Tribune Herald

  Four months to the day when Missouri kicks off the 2022 football season, Tigers coach Eli Drinkwitz walked into Mizzou Softball Stadium on Sunday with a conspicuous guest, former Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon, the third high-profile Power 5 quarterback transfer Drinkwitz has hosted on campus this spring. Maybe third time's a charm? Bohanon entered the NCAA transfer portal last week, fresh off playing a major role in the Bears' 2021 Big 12 championship season. Bohanon started 12 of 14 games for 12-win Baylor last season and missed two games with a hamstring injury, including the Big 12 championship game victory over Oklahoma State. He returned to start the Sugar Bowl win over Ole Miss. - Post-Dispatch

  Gerry Bohanon had a hard time finding the words to describe just how he felt after 18th-ranked Baylor ran over Oklahoma, ending the fourth-ranked Sooners' nation's-best 17-game winning streak. The hard-nosed quarterback does know what it means going forward for the resurgent Bears. "I know we'll keep going," Bohanon said. "I know that was just motivation for what we can do, and we can be as a team." Bohanon threw a touchdown pass and ran for two scores in the fourth quarter and Baylor's defense harassed both Oklahoma quarterbacks in a 27-14 win Saturday that kept the Bears in contention for a spot in the Big 12 championship game, a week after an unexpected loss at struggling TCU. "It's controlled confidence. You know, we put in the work and we expected results," said linebacker Terrel Bernard, who had nine tackles and two sacks for Baylor (8-2, 5-2 Big 12, CFP No. 13). "We didn't play up to our standard last week. And, we corrected some things on tape. We put in a great game plan and came out here and executed." The Sooners (9-1, 6-1, CFP No. 8) were held to 260 total yards, their fewest ever with coach Lincoln Riley in his five seasons as head coach and two seasons as offensive coordinator before that.

It was their fewest points in a regular-season game since a 48-14 home loss to Baylor in 2014, which came weeks before they ended that season with a 40-6 loss to Clemson in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Oklahoma lost in November under Riley for the first time. "Disappointing, no other way to put it," Riley said. "Still a whole lot left for this football team. That's the advantage of winning your first nine games, is you do set yourself up to be able to overcome something like this...We'll bounce back like we always do and like we fully expect to." - Baylor/AP College Football

  Gerry Bohanon had career highs of 336 yards passing and four touchdowns, including a 75-yarder to Tyquan Thornton on the second play of the game, while also scoring on a 1-yard sneak in Baylor's 45-20 victory over West Virginia on Saturday. Thornton caught eight passes for a career-best 187 yards and two TDs as the Bears scored on four of their first five possessions a week after starting with eight consecutive punts in a 24-14 loss to Oklahoma State that knocked Baylor out of the Top 25 right after getting in. With the Bears (5-1, 3-1 Big 12) celebrating the 10th anniversary of Robert Griffin III's Heisman Trophy season by showing frequent highlights, Bohanon was 18 of 29 with no interceptions, giving the fourth-year junior 183 career attempts without a pick.

Jarret Doege was sacked six times, and the Mountaineers (2-4, 0-3) again couldn't get the Big 12's worst run game going. West Virginia, which had 90 mostly empty yards rushing, has lost its first three conference games for the second time since joining the league in 2012. Thornton caught Bohanon's first pass 7 yards from the line of scrimmage, split the defense and ran untouched on a play that was 3 yards shy of the longest of the senior's career. The Mountaineers needed just 1:38 to get even when Sean Ryan caught a 12-yard pass from Doege that was tipped by Baylor safety Christian Morgan. Doege was 24 of 37 for 272 yards with a touchdown and was replaced with the game out of reach by Garrett Greene, who had a 13-yard scoring run late. - Baylor/AP College Football

  Iowa State coach Matt Campbell said his defense was just a little bit off with its detail early in Saturday's game against Baylor. The Bears took full advantage with a fast start, then held on as their special teams and defense handled the rest. Gerry Bohanon threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, and Baylor stopped a two-point try with 24 seconds left to beat No. 14 Iowa State 31-29 on Saturday. Breece Hall ran for 180 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries for Iowa State (2-2, 0-1 Big 12) and caught five passes for 51 yards, including a 16-yard score in the final minute that was followed by a failed two-point try.

On the two-point conversion, Brock Purdy went under center after spending most of the day in shotgun and bobbled the snap. That was enough to throw off the play's timing, and Purdy was forced to throw a jump ball that was intercepted by Baylor's JT Woods. "It was supposed to be a play-action, and we felt like it would work knowing that I demand so much attention," Hall said. "It was a bobbled snap, so Brock got out there late. He couldn't get around the edge defender, so he had to throw it up and hope for the best. It just didn't work out." The Bears recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock for their first win over a ranked opponent since they beat North Carolina in the 2015 Russell Athletic Bowl. "It was a team win," Baylor coach Dave Aranda said. "The guys (were) gritting out stuff and not allowing stuff to happen. It's way cool to be on that side of it." - Baylor/AP College Football

  Gerry Bohanon threw for 269 yards and two touchdowns while running for another score, and Baylor had its way against Kansas on the ground, piling up 307 yards rushing in a 45-7 victory on Saturday. Abram Smith ran for 122 yards and a touchdown, and Trestan Ebner added 72 yards on just 12 carries, as the Bears (3-0, 1-0 Big 12) beat the Jayhawks (1-2, 0-1) for the 12th consecutive time. Baylor hasn't lost to Kansas since the 2007 season. Baylor finished with 576 yards total offense. Kansas managed just 166. Jayhawks quarterback Jason Bean was held to just 57 yards passing and a touchdown, though he did have 62 yards on the ground, before giving way to backup Jalon Daniels in the fourth quarter. By that point, Baylor had turned a 14-7 halftime advantage into another rout. - Baylor/AP College Football

  Gerry Bohanon has been hitting up his teammates in recent days for extra tickets to Baylor's season opener against Texas State. After sitting behind Charlie Brewer for three seasons, Saturday night's game in San Marcos will be Bohanon's first as the Bears' starting quarterback. It's a big moment for Bohanon, and he wants as many family members and friends as possible to be there to share it. "My family's pretty excited about it, so I'm pretty much trying to get a couple of tickets to get some more family members to the game," Bohanon said. "Get to see some good action this weekend that everybody's been waiting for." In an era when dissatisfied players routinely enter the transfer portal, Bohanon is an example of how old-school patience can still pay off. Coming out of tiny Earle, Ark., Bohanon put up phenomenal high school numbers as he passed for 11,362 yards and 142 touchdowns and rushed for 5,925 yards and 70 scores in four years and twice earned all-state honors. - Waco Tribune Herald

  Baylor announced junior Gerry Bohanon as the starting quarterback on Sunday. Bohanon has been battling sophomore Jacob Zeno and redshirt freshman Blake Shapen for the starting job throughout the spring and the first two weeks of preseason camp. Baylor announced coach Dave Aranda's decision through social media. A fourth-year junior, the 6-3, 221-pound Bohanon has hit 18 of 38 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 296 yards on 48 carries and three scores in his college career. Both Bohanon and Zeno backed up Charlie Brewer the last two seasons before the veteran quarterback transferred to Utah for his final season of college eligibility. - Waco Tribune Herald

  Junior Gerry Bohanon and sophomore Jacob Zeno are the top candidates for the job while redshirt freshman Blake Shapen and incoming freshman Kyron Drones are up and coming quarterbacks who will likely play supporting roles. Neither Bohanon nor Zeno took many snaps last year after seeing some playing time in Baylor's 2019 Sugar Bowl season when Brewer went out with injuries. They're both eager to prove themselves this spring. "The only way I know how to do it is to give it a true competition," Bell said. "So every single rep, everything we do in the offseason, everything we do in the weight room, everything we do from throwing the ball to handing off the ball, everything's a competition. I think they feel that, and I think that excites them."

Entering his fourth year on the squad, Bohanon is the most experienced of a relatively inexperienced group. He's shown a solid arm, but at 6-3 and 221 pounds he's mainly exhibited powerful running skills. In 2019, Bohanon carried 42 times for 272 yards and three touchdowns while also hitting 17 of 36 passes for 187 yards and two scores. "I try to bring energy," Bohanon said. "I want everybody to know when I'm out there, I'm going to bring excitement, I'm going to do what's best for the team, I'm going to make the right decision. I want them to be confident in me. I want to show that I'm confident in what I can do." Bohanon is excited to play in new offensive coordinator Jeff Grimes' wide zone offense and likes what Bell brings to the table as quarterbacks coach. "Coach Bell is a really good coach," Bohanon said. "Every day, he's pushing everybody to be the best, he's always on top with the smallest things you pay attention to. He cares about our success as an individual and as a player." - Waco Tribune Herald
