 Gerry Bohanon, South Florida, Player News


  USF's injury concerns grew Tuesday when the Bulls announced that starting quarterback Gerry Bohanon will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. The Baylor transfer hurt his right (throwing) shoulder in the first half of last week's home loss to Tulane and will require surgery. Bohanon started every game for the Bulls this season and had thrown for 501 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions over the past three games. His 386 rushing yards this year ranked second on the team. Bohanon has one more year of eligibility. With Bohanon out, third-year quarterback Katravis Marsh will inherit the job. The Miami Central product started one game in each of his first two seasons and is 45-of-98 with six interceptions and three touchdown passes in his Bulls career. - Tampa Tribune

  2022 PRESEASON JOHNNY UNITAS GOLDEN ARM AWARD WATCH LIST: Gerry Bohanon, South Florida,...Bohanon, a 6-foot-3, 226-pound right-hander started 12 games last season for the Bears while totaling 2,523 yards (2,200 passing and 323 rushing) and 27 touchdowns (18 passing and nine rushing). He transferred to USF in May after spring football drills had been completed. - South Florida Football

  Sometime Sunday, USF coach Jeff Scott made one of the hardest no-brainer decisions he'll ever make with the Bulls. He named Baylor transfer Gerry Bohanon the starting quarterback over incumbent Timmy McClain. Identifying Bohanon as the starter was the easy part. The first time he stepped on campus (for his official visit), he watched film with the staff until 1 a.m. When the Bulls tallied the grit score for players' work ethic and leadership during summer workouts, Bohanon was second on the team. When every offensive player confidentially listed the unit's top three leaders on the eve of preseason camp, Bohanon ­finished in the top three...despite having not yet taken a single rep with them.

No other quarterback received a vote. When Scott gathered his team to address a sloppy start to practice a few days later, he didn't have to say a word; Bohanon stepped in to tell his new teammates they weren't living up to the standard. "The best part about it?" Scott said Tuesday. "Everybody listened." Bohanon backed it up on the field. Through 10 practices, Scott said Bohanon completed 80 percent of his passes ­- 13 points higher than anyone else. His decision-making graded out at 90 percent, even though he was new to the offense. And everyone around the program knows how Bohanon helped turn two-win Baylor into a Big 12 champion - the kind of transformation the Bulls would love to experience. His consistency and knowledge could be the difference between turning some of last fall's close losses (BYU, Tulsa, UCF) into wins. When Scott gathered his staff Sunday to pick a starter, the vote was unanimous. "Crystal clear," Scott said. - Tampa Tribune

  As USF turned the page from a dreadful 2021 season to the offseason optimism of 2022, Bulls coach Jeff Scott looked for inspiration for his team. So he brought up Baylor. The Bears struggled through a 2-7 year and were picked to finish near the bottom of the Big 12 in 2021, too. Instead, they went 12-2 and won the league. "Gerry (Bohanon) was a big part of that," Scott said recently. Now Bohanon will try to lead a similar turnaround at USF after the Bulls named him their starting quarterback Monday ahead of incumbent Timmy McClain. A few hours later, news broke that McClain was entering the transfer portal.

Monday's decisions followed the timeline Scott set at the start of preseason camp of naming a starter after the first scrimmage to give that quarterback plenty of time to mesh with the first team and establish himself as the locker room leader. Both McClain and Bohanon completed more than 64 percent of their passes in the scrimmage over the weekend, according to USF, with two touchdown passes and an interception each. Both also rushed for at least two scores. - Tampa Tribune

  Play for Pay. When asked about his program's name, image and likeness collective that launched last week, USF coach Jeff Scott said, "The No. 1 factor on your future success on bringing in talented players and retaining talented players, the very No. 1 factor is going to be your NIL ability, bottom line. Te third-year Bulls coach finds the Fowler Avenue Collective that critical to the Bulls' long-term success - if not survival. Former Bulls quarterback Matt Grothe - still one of the most popular players in program history - serves as host and emcee for the collective's virtual events. Bulls quarterback Gerry Bohanon, a Baylor transfer vying for the starting job this preseason, has signed up as the collective's first ambassador. "We had two young men that we recruited this spring that chose to go to schools that were one conference below us," Scott said. "And it was because of what they were going to get; they were going to get $2,000 a month from the collective. And that was a conference below us, and we lost them here." - Tampa Tribune

  New USF quarterback Gerry Bohanon already knows the first thing he will do Thursday when he walks into the Bulls' first-team huddle for the first time. He's going to smile. "As a quarterback, when the guys see that poise, that confidence, that smile … I feel like it's a sense of relief," Bohanon said. Bohanon's poise, confidence and, yes, smile, were on full display Wednesday in his first news conference since transferring from Baylor. Seven minutes behind a lectern at media day were enough to see why the Bulls had to take the former Bears passer and why he's a serious threat to unseat Timmy McClain as USF's starter.

He said the right things about wanting to be "the best version of myself every day." He showed passion, describing the chills he felt during Tuesday's team meeting. He talked up the competition among quarterbacks with everything from X's and O's discussions to offseason workouts. He deflected praise and, clearly, believes in himself and the locker room. None of which should surprise coach Jeff Scott. Scott wasn't looking to add a transfer quarterback this offseason and would only pursue a perfect fit - a knowledgeable veteran who has played at a high level and would add immediate leadership without damaging the culture he has spent two years building. "I think adding Gerry to that room has checked all of those boxes," Scott said. - Tampa Tribune

  2022 PRESEASON DAVEY O'BRIEN NATIONAL QUARTERBACK AWARD WATCH LIST: Gerry Bohanon, USF, Sr., 6-3, 221, Earle, Ark.,...Transferred to USF after four seasons and 27 games played at Baylor, including starting 12 of 14 games and totaling 2,523 yards (2,200 passing/323 rushing) and 27 touchdowns (18 passing/9 rushing) during the 2021 season in which the Bears went 12-2 and won the Sugar Bowl…a former Elite 11 quarterback and four-star recruit (247 & ESPN), he passed for 11,362 yards and 142 touchdowns and ran for 5,925 yards and 70 touchdowns in his high school career. - South Florida Football

  The latest quarterback derby of the Jeff Scott era likely will be the shortest. During a recent radio interview that originally aired on WDAE, Scott said the plan is for competition to be staged during the first half of fall camp, allowing the starter to then log significant first-team reps heading into the Sept. 3 opener against Brigham Young at Raymond James Stadium. "It's not my intention to really have a quarterback battle that's going to linger on into the season," said Scott, whose team begins practice on Aug. 3. That approach differs significantly from the past two years, when Scott - who has used five starting quarterbacks in his 21-game tenure - made it clear his intention was to identify a clear-cut starter by the first American Athletic Conference game.

This go-round, sophomore left-hander Timmy McClain, who started nine games last season (2,126 total yards, five passing TDs, seven INTs), will be challenged by 6-foot-3 Baylor transfer Gerry Bohanon, who made 12 starts (throwing for 2,200 yards) for the Big 12 champions in 2021. Sophomore Katravis Marsh (two career starts), redshirt freshman Jordan Smith and freshman Byrum Brown are the other scholarship quarterbacks. "We're very excited about Timmy McClain. Timmy's got a great future ahead of him," Scott said. "I think for me, the biggest thing was, we wanted to add some experience to that room, because that room overall is very young; there's a lot of first- and second-year players. And Gerry's a guy that took over last year at Baylor, a team that was coming off a two-win season, and Gerry was able to lead them on to a Big 12 championship." - Tampa Tribune

  Former Arkansas head coach Chad Morris is returning to college football. Morris has been hired as a senior offensive analyst at South Florida, the program announced Monday. Bulls coach Jeff Scott and Morris worked together at Clemson from 2011-14 when Morris was the offensive coordinator and Scott was a receivers coach. Scott was promoted to co-offensive coordinator when Morris left to coach SMU following the 2014 season.

In a statement, Scott said he is eager to have Morris join a staff that is looking to "employ a fast-paced and exciting offense." On May 13, Morris resigned as head coach at Texas football power Allen High School after one season. He finished the 2021 season with an 11-3 record. Morris was hired to lead Allen on March 31, 2021, after one season as offensive coordinator at Auburn under Gus Malzahn. Morris was fired at Arkansas on Nov. 10, 2019, one day after the Razorbacks' 45-19 home loss to Western Kentucky. He was 4-18 in two seasons as the Razorbacks' head coach, including 0-14 in SEC games. - Northwest Arkansas Times

  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
