USF receivers coach Phil McGeoghan watched sophomore Terrence Mitchell and junior Victor Marc both put together a solid body of work in the spring and fall camp, which is why he wasn’t surprised to see both players shine in a 37-7 win over Ball State.

Mitchell posted career highs in both receptions (seven) and receiving yards (60), as did Marc (four receptions, 81 yards), who also caught his first career touchdown pass.

“I think it’s just been a matter of time before they got a chance to go out there and showcase what their natural talents and abilities are,” McGeoghan said.

USF’s receiving corps, considered one of the most improved positions on the team from last season, has shown its depth during the first two weeks, with Mitchell and Marc among six Bulls with five or more receptions.

It may be tough for any member of the group to put up big numbers each week considering the amount of capable options, but those who continue to gain the coaching staff’s trust with their work in practice will get an opportunity.

“We’ll find a role,” McGeoghan said. “That’s one thing that (offensive coordinator Todd) Fitch and coach (Skip) Holtz do is finding roles for guys that deserve to play.”
