Jermaine Lawrence, Cincinnati: If the Bearcats want to reach the NCAA Tournament in 2015, they need a major jump out of Lawrence. Cincinnati will graduate both Titus Rubles and Justin Jackson up front and the 6-foot-9 Lawrence is primed to step in to a starting role on the baseline as a sophomore. The skilled forward battled injury and consistency issues this past season as a freshman and only averaged 2.8 points and 2.9 rebounds in 15.0 minutes. Lawrence will need to triple that level of production if the Bearcats are to reach the field of 68 for the fifth consecutive year under Mick Cronin. It says here he’s more than up to challenge.
Tubs and Co. have cast a very wide net in recruiting linemen this year with 34 offers out to guys ranging from South Dakota to South Florida, and plenty of those guys would be solid additions.

In the past three years alone, DeSoto has produced 23 FBS players– none of them seriously considered SMU, mostly because the Ponies never recruited them. Still, Mathis believes SMU is improving its efforts to build ties in the Dallas-area.
UConn, which also won both titles in the same year a decade ago, is the only Division I school that has accomplished that feat.
29. Cincinnati – G/T Xavier Su’a-FiloThis pick isn’t mocked probably anywhere else but when you look at the depth chart behind Clint Boling, currently recovering from a torn ACL, there isn’t much there. With all the first round tackles gone and the drafts top three corners gone, the Bengals grab the drafts best guard and plug him in for the next 5 years. One thing we know about Cincinnati is that they aren’t afraid to draft the best rated player.
The Cincinnati Reds announced earlier this evening that right handed pitcher Mat Latos was dealing with some elbow irritation and would have his scheduled rehab start for the Triple-A Louisville Bats pushed back a few days.
