Cincinnati junior punter Mason Fletcher was recently named to the Sports Info Solutions Preseason All-Big 12 Specials Teams unit!

Fletcher developed into one of the most effective punters in the entire country as a sophomore and was a finalist for the Ray Guy Award.

Moving to a new conference will certainly come with plenty of obstacles but Fletcher should bring stability to the Bearcats special teams.

The Australian native received several accolades last season including AAC Special Teams Player of the Year and All-AAC First Team recognition.

Corleone is expected to compete for the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year as he hopes to build on a spectacular redshirt freshman campaign.

Grzesiak was one of the most sought after transfers in the portal after totaling 52 tackles and 8.5 sacks throughout his lone season at Utah State.
