The South Florida football program is dipping into the transfer waters once again, this time by luring in former Notre Dame defensive end Aaron Lynch. South Florida head coach Skip Holtz announced the move today via his official Twitter account.
Excited that Aaron Lynch has decided to join the Bulls family.— Skip Holtz (@CoachHoltzUSF) April 23, 2012
Lynch, a Cape Coral, FL native, signed with Notre Dame last year and was rated a four-star recruit by Rivals.com and the #3 defensive end prospect in the country. As a true freshman, Lynch played in 12 of the team's 13 games and led the team in sacks, with 5. His freshman season earned him Freshman All-America honors from a number of outlets. Lynch may apply for a waiver to allow him to play immediately instead of sitting out the 2012 season, but it is unlikely that his waiver would be approved. Most believe Lynch is an early-round NFL Draft prospect and an elite talent that will immediately make the Bulls' future defensive line a force to be reckoned with.
