Briggs will continue to be a significant part of the Bearcats defense alongside veteran defensive linemen Malik Vann, Justin Wodtly and more!

Corleone developed into a dominant force during his redshirt freshman campaign and will be a leader on the defensive front moving forward.

After beginning his career at Virginia, Briggs transferred to his hometown school in 2021 and eventually became a full-time starter last season.

During the premier episode of the Bearcats new series Camp Tapes, Briggs broke down his relationship with Corleone per Cincinnati Athletics.

"โ€œHigher Ground is one of the things that has been a staple at Cincinnati. Once you find out that youโ€™re around so many unselfish brothers, that really just want to come here and dial in the team and lock in the culture that we want to showcase every Saturday against our opponents. I think guys really buy into that as players. Having that pride and the work I put in is something that really speaks volumes for me. From pretty much when he got here to now, weโ€™ve been paired up so Iโ€™ve luckily had the chance to impart anything I know onto him and help him in any way. Kind of be that brotherly type figure. Hopefully help him out as best I can.โ€"
