The Bulls have senior point guard Anthony Crater and sophomore point guard Lavonte Dority returning and in the past month Coach Heath and the Bulls got verbal commitments from two JUCO guards in Anthony Collins, a 6-foot-1, 165 pound PG from Westbury Christian School, and Blake Nash, a 6-foot-1, 185 pound PG out of Williston College. Both are expected to sign with USF on Wednesday, the first day of the spring signing period
