TAMPA -- Four-star, Manatee High School (Fla.) defensive tackle Derrick Calloway is making his official visit to the USF this weekend.

While Calloway is getting familiar with the new facilities and coaches at USF, he will also get a chance to get to know his host, USF defensive lineman Julius Forte. An interesting pairing by USF head coach Willie Taggart, let's compare the two:

Calloway, who has already verbally committed to Louisville, is taking one of his final official visits to USF this weekend. The four-star recruit has garnered offers from a reported seventeen schools and is ranked in the top twenty at the defensive tackle position by Rivals.com.

Calloway is a player that many believe will have an early impact on any program he chooses. This past season at Manatee High School, Calloway anchored the defensive line with 56 tackles, 3 sacks and 13 hurries.

Forte is not so different from Calloway. A 3-star recruit in the class of 2009, Forte eventually chose the Bulls over offers from six other schools; including Louisville.

Forte had a chance to make an impact early for USF, seeing playing in nine games, registering 10 tackles and a sack. Forte emerged in 2011, totaling 21 tackles, 6 for a loss and 3 sacks.

Willie Taggart's pairing will help Calloway get the full experience of what it is like to be a defensive lineman with the Bulls.

Taggart is relying on Forte to make the best impression possible on the Manatee High School product, hoping that a good visit can persuade Calloway to flip from the Cardinals to the Bulls.
