Cincinnati Bearcats wide receiver Tre Tucker and tight end Josh Whyle recently accepted invites to the 2023 Reese’s Senior Bowl, which will take place on Saturday, February 4 in Mobile, Alabama.
Both players will have a chance to end their career on a positive note and potentially impress NFL scouts as the best seniors from across the country compete leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft.
Tucker spent four seasons at Cincinnati and finished his career with the third-most kick off return yards (1,670) in school history and two touchdowns including a game-changing score at Indiana last year.
Whyle surpassed Brent Celek with the most career touchdowns (15) for a tight end in program history and became the third Bearcats tight end to record more than 1,000 receiving yards.

During his five-year career, Whyle received three All-AAC selections and developed into one of the best tight ends in Bearcats history. The Cincinnati native totaled 1,062 yards on 88 receptions in 41 games.
In addition to being a dynamic returner, Tucker became a key part of the offense as a junior and propelled that into a great senior season with 52 catches for 671 yards and three touchdowns.
Following the announcement that Tucker and Whyle will play in the annual event, the Bearcats program has a total 49 players to participate in the Senior Bowl including six last season.
It will be a great opportunity for the Cincinnati seniors to learn from NFL coaches and compete against their peers in practice and the game as they aim to improve their draft stock.
