Cincinnati Bearcats senior outside linebacker Daniel Grzesiak is set to have a significant role as he prepares for his only season with the program!

Grzesiak was one of the most sought after players in the transfer portal after totaling 52 tackles and 8.5 sacks during his lone year at Utah State.

The former Utah State edge rusher committed to Cincinnati over offers from Houston, Kansas, Indiana, Missouri, West Virginia and others.

With an experienced defensive front in place, the Bearcats have potential to find success as Grzesiak hopes to make an immediate impact.

After suffering a season-ending pectoral injury nearly a year ago, Bearcats veteran defensive end Malik Vann is ready to return to form!

During the home opener last September, Vann went down with an upper-body injury and was forced to miss the remainder of the year.

The Cincinnati native committed to his hometown program over six years ago and developed into a major contributor on the defensive line.

Vann compiled 90 tackles, 21 tackles for loss and eight sacks in 47 games, helping the Bearcats take home back to back AAC championships.
