After taking a visit to Clifton last week, 2023 3-star junior college offensive tackle and former Memphis commit Judea Milon flipped his commitment to the Bearcats on Sunday night.
Milon originally committed to Memphis in early December before deciding to transfer to Cincinnati over California, Central Florida, Kansas, Missouri, South Florida and others.
The Texas native developed into a key contributor during his career at Tyler Junior College and is expected to have two years of eligibility remaining with the Bearcats moving forward.
According to 247 Sports, Milon is the 8th highest rated junior college transfer from the state of Texas and the 7th ranked junior college interior offensive line transfer in the nation.

Bearcats first-year offensive line coach Nic Cardwell has been busy in the transfer portal with the recent additions of Milon alongside Luke Kandra, Trevor Radosevich and Phillip Wilder.
Kandra appeared in 21 games during two seasons at Louisville before deciding to enter the portal in December and eventually follow head coach Scott Satterfield to Cincinnati.
Radosevich entered the portal in late November following his fourth year at Penn and received offers from Bowling Green, Colorado State, Middle Tennessee State and Toledo.
Wilder was a 3-star prospect coming out of high school and held offers from Florida, Miami, Oregon, Texas and others before spending three seasons at Southeast Missouri State.

Southeast Missouri State offensive tackle transfer Phillip Wilder announced his decision to join the Bearcats earlier this month and will have at least two years of eligibility left.
Wilder has experience at both tackle positions and should compete for a starting spot alongside fellow transfers including guard Luke Kandra and interior lineman Trevor Radosevich.
In addition to Wilder, Cincinnati received a pair of recent transfer commitments from former Florida State slot receiver Keyshawn Helton and Florida cornerback Jordan Young.
Despite missing out on a few targets, the Bearcats brought in nearly a dozen of potential starters from the portal and hope to add more during the next transfer window in May.
