Robinson senior Bruce Hector has made a verbal commitment to the University of South Florida, Knights assistant coach Shawn Taylor announced Monday.

The 6-foot-2, 270-pound Hector also had offers from Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Florida Atlantic and Tennessee State. But Taylor said Hector chose the Bulls and head coach Skip Holtz because of the school’s coaching staff, the academic focus of the football program and the ability to play close to home.

Hector is the first player off Robinson’s 2012 squad to make a college commitment but several others are expected to follow. Among them is another offensive lineman, Connor Rafferty (6-3, 275), who Monday landed an offer from Holtz.
