Volume number seven in our second annual ‘SoFloBulls.com USF Football Highlights Series‘ is the USF man with the plan #SaucySalomon South Florida wide receiver Darnell Salomon 2017 Highlight reel. (Twitter: @3way_era // IG: @d3_salomon) The Bulls staff nipped at the heels of this imposing, rangy and dynamic prospect out of powerhouse Miami Central. Then Bulls head coach Willie Taggart ‘Ran Off the Plug, Twice‘ after seeing the fax machine light up on February 3, 2016 and the 4 star recruit’s letter of intent come rolling in as an official part of the USF Class of 2016:
I talked it over with my family and I am now committed to USF#Go Bulls 🐂

Salomon savage sophomore season concluded with 512 receiving yards on 32 receptions (16.0 yds/rec) while adding five touchdowns catches from quarterback Quinton Flowers during the two-time Florida FHSAA State Champion’s 2017 campaign.
ESPN’s Tom Luginbill gave Salomon a glowing recruiting review, describing the Miami native as “shows surprising suddenness given his measurables”, “deceptively productive on underneath catches”, and “very good focus here”. Luginbill compared Darnell Salomon to former Clemson firecracker Deion Cain who declared for the 2018 NFL Draft.
Back in 2016 when a reporter asked Salomon if he spoke to USF quarterback and fellow Miami native Quinton Flowers, he grinned then added, “Every day.” I fully expect Salomon to burst on the scene in 2018 after paying his dues in a loaded USF depth chart the last two seasons. Mark my words: Salomon will be the either Brett Kean’s or Chris Oladokun’s savior along with Tyre McCants.
The ‘SoFloBulls.com USF Football Highlight Series‘ will continue to release an exclusive collection of highlight reels for our die hard USF Football followers, which will be chalked full of Matthew Manuri‘s handpicked top plays from the historic 10-2 2017 USF Football season. Stay tuned Bulls faithful, we’re currently cooking in the lab to create a plethora of premium litty reels!!
