Three players from Largo, Florida, received offers from Iowa State today. Despite a couple of them already committing to a local school, all three provide a different area they can contribute on a team.

Francisco Hernandez, Jarvis Stewart, and Cordell Hudson are all in the class of 2014, with Hernandez and Stewart already committing to South Florida back in March. They’re just verbal commitments, being able to accept other offers and still take visits to other schools as they prepare for their final year of high school football.

Stewart, listed as an athlete, is ranked the highest with a 3-star ranking from 247Sports. He’s been scouted as a potential next top running back at USF. The recruiting service has him ranked as the 67th best athlete overall in the state of Florida.

Other offers given to the 5-foot-10, 175-pound athlete are from Missouri, Cincinnati, Indiana, Kentucky, Central Florida, West Virginia, and Western Michigan.

Hernandez, an outside linebacker, is listed as a 2-star recruit and checks in at 6-foot, 190 pounds. He committed to USF a week after Stewart did. Other offers include are, again, the Hoosiers, Wildcats, and Knights, along with Middle Tennessee State.

Hudson, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound cornerback, has just been receiving his first offers today. The offer from the Cyclones was the first, and he may have at least a new ones since. 247Sports lists South Alabama as a school that has given him an offer, but according to Hudson on Twitter he posted that he received his second offer from Wake Forest.

Largo went 11-1 last season, the only blemish was a 10-6 loss to Armwood in the playoffs. Stewart led the team in rushing with 1186 total yards in 152 carries and had 16 touchdowns. His longest was a 72-yard run against Osceola where he picked up four touchdowns in the win. He also picked up a passing touchdown.

Hernandez had 99 total tackles (73 solo, 26 assisted) and had 17 tackles for loss. He also recorded two interceptions and two fumble recoveries. Hudson had 21 total tackles and recorded three interceptions and deflected five passes.
