Former Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon has found a new home.
Bohanon announced on Sunday that he's transferring to South Florida, where he'll be favored to start next season and has two seasons of eligibility remaining. It marks a huge pickup for coach Jeff Scott as he enters his third season as USF's head coach.
"I picked USF because I believe in that staff, I believe in the culture, I believe in the change that's coming," he told ESPN in a text message. "I believe in the players, I believe in Tampa. That staff is the staff you want to play for, they're going to give (you) everything they have on and off the field."
Bohanon also took a visit to Missouri since announcing his transfer from Baylor. He told ESPN he also considered BYU, Georgia Tech, Liberty and Oklahoma. Bohanon was one of the breakout stars of the 2021 football season, as he went 10-2 as a Baylor starter, leading the Bears amid a star-kissed season that included a Big 12 title and Sugar Bowl win.
