La Salle High School product and former Cincinnati tight end Josh Whyle is aiming to get picked in the 2023 NFL Draft this weekend alongside a handful of fellow Bearcats standouts!

The Cincinnati native became the first Bearcats tight end with 15 receiving touchdowns in his career, surpassing Brent Celek’s school record with a 14-yard score against UCF last season.

Whyle was recently named the 5th highest rated tight end prospect prior to the draft according to the 33rd Team. Notre Dame star Michael Mayer is projected to be the first tight end drafted.
