    Tubberville never seemed to take the UC job seriously.

    Looks like several big time 2018 kids in Ohio are also talking about going to UC together, including top 25 nationally L'Christian Smith. UC gave him the interesting opportunity of playing both football and basketball as a scholarship player. UK offered him something similar but basketball would be as a walk on.
    If Potts gets any of his dads size he will end up a LB.

    Listed at 6'3 206 so my guess is he ends up being a big physical safety that also plays some OLB.

    4* WR Danny Davis is scheduled to visit UC next weekend. Visited West Va this past weekend.

    Sounds like the Bearcats might have a realistic shot with him with Fickell recruiting him personally. Ron Crook was listed as his lead recruiter from West Va and he is now the o line coach at UC.

    Read an article where his parents like UK because of proximity to home (Springfield, OH) but with UC getting involved, that could change.

    I am amazed at what Luke Fickell has been able to accomplish in his first couple of weeks at UC. Very exciting time for the UC fan base.

    This job sits in a gold mine of talent of which kids love to stay home. I'd say if everything goes how it's expected, they'll be in a P5 sooner than later. Of course, when UC has success, the HC tends to get out for a bigger job. Maybe a P5 label will cause coaches to stick around longer.

    For as good of a job as he's doing, I still feel like his statement recruit is still to come. Good times ahead for UC.

    Former UK WR and Lawrence County High grad Gerad Parker has been hired as UC's RB coach.

    Parker was at Purdue last year.

    Kyle Bolden of Colerain is visiting this week end...while he might not be a statement recruit from a ranking perspective (3*), he is definitely an important kid to try to keep home.
