DADE CITY -- When Skip Holtz left, several things changed at USF. The hiring of a new staff and the changing of what type of athlete the Bulls would be pursuing.
Just north of Tampa, in neighboring Pasco County, three-star Rivals.com athlete Janarion Grant still waits for the phone call.
"When Skip Holtz left, that was the end of that," said Tom McHugh. "We haven't heard from them. It's strange how it works."
Strange, but a part of what is today's collegiate recruiting world.
Grant is an athlete on both sides of the ball. Possessing quickness, arm strength (he lined up at quarterback) and leadership, the 5-9, 165 pd Grant wants to play for USF - if it's in the cards.

But so far, no one from coach Willie Taggart's staff has called either Grant or McHugh.
"He's enteraining the colleges that are recruiting him," McHugh said. "The guy who was recruiting him at Oklahoma State is now at Houston."
Grant will not be on the previously scheduled trip to Stillwater, Okla. this weekend. Instead, he'll be planning a trip to Houston.
Grant has offers from the Cougars, Kentucky, Rutgers and East Carolina - along with Houston and Oklahoma State.
Meanwhile, McHugh says whoever gets Grant may get a package deal. RB David Emmanuel is also looking to stay close to home - after Rutgers pulled its offer.
