  Draft Scout by Conference

  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
