South Florida has added a commitment to their Class of 2014.
Dinero Mercurius, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Brandon Faith Baptist Christian School (Fla.), committed to the Bulls Friday night.
He is the second player to commit to the Bulls, joining Oldsmar Christian (Fla.) shooting guard Troy Holston.
A long and lean scorer, Mercurius is a high energy player that can knock down shots consistently, and should be a good addition to the Bulls roster in the 2014-2015 season. Along with Holston, head coach Stan Heath looks to have found a decent amount of offensive firepower for the future.
The commitment was first reported by Mercurius’ AAU coach Diane Neal.
