After losing a ton of production from the wide receiver room, the Bearcats brought in several transfers that will add experience and versatility next season!

Cincinnati received commitments from a trio of veteran receivers in Sterling Berkhalter, Donovan Ollie and Dee Wiggins during the initial transfer portal window.

Even though it will be difficult to recreate the success of Tyler Scott and Tre Tucker, the Bearcats picked up multiple receivers that should make a significant impact.

Scott Satterfield’s coaching staff also added Connecticut receiver Aaron Turner and Florida receiver Xzavier Henderson since the spring scrimmage last month.

Ollie was third on Washington State with 491 receiving yards, 43 catches and three touchdowns, highlighted by a difficult grab during a win over Stanford last season.

Turner led the Huskies with 527 receiving yards, 57 receptions and three touchdowns a year ago including a 53-yard touchdown against Syracuse in September.

Wiggins racked up 791 receiving yards and seven touchdowns during his time at Miami before having his only season with the Cardinals cut short due to injury.

A trio of recent transfer additions should have success next year including wide receiver Xzavier Henderson, defensive end Kyree Moyston and safety George Udo.

Henderson posted 73 catches for 835 receiving yards and five touchdowns in 35 games at Florida, including a team-high 410 yards and 38 receptions last season.
