I really feel for student athletes who actively reach out and try to get colleges to notice them. Ben Josipovic is one of those kids and not only is he putting up numbers at the high school level, he’s also quite the smart kid. An intelligent player who shows how much he wants to be on your team by reaching out to your coaching staff in the recruitment period will work harder and spend more time watching film than other players. That’s what Josipovic would give the Bearcats.
The Bearcats have been pretty silent on the recruiting front this season but landing Chris Obekpa would certainly continue to up the talent level at UC. By most sources he’s basically Cincinnati and UConn’s recruit to lose. Mick would probably have Obekpa step in right away when Yancy Gates graduates but the Huskies are the Huskies. UC needs to make a statement this Thursday in front of a blacked out, sold out 5/3rd Arena when Chris takes his official visit.
As he should be. The Bearcats have been come a balanced team and run the ball much more under Coach Jones.
