Bearcats standout Dontay Corleone was included among PFF College’s top defensive tackle prospects for the 2024 NFL Draft!

Corleone was recently mentioned alongside several dominant defensive linemen including Illinois junior Jer’zhan Newton and others.

The Cincinnati native emerged during his redshirt freshman season en route to receiving All-AAC First Team and AP All-American honors.

With a determined defensive line in place, Corleone and company are hoping to make some noise in the inaugural campaign in the Big 12.

After an impressive freshman campaign, Corleone was recently named to the Walter Camp Preseason All-American First Team.

Corleone compiled 45 tackles and three sacks last season, highlighted by a career-best 11 tackles against Navy in November.

Scott Satterfield’s staff looks to continue building momentum entering next season and Corleone will be a key part to the success.

The defense has been a formidable force for years but they will face new obstacles in a conference that is known for explosive offenses.
