Cincinnati Bearcats seniors Jowon Briggs, Xzavier Henderson, Deshawn Pace and Malik Vann were named to the Reese’s Senior Bowl watch list!
Henderson displayed elite speed throughout his time at Florida and should have an opportunity to lead Cincinnati in receiving yards this season.
Pace developed into a dynamic and versatile defensive player that has been a significant part of the Bearcats success throughout his career.
Vann decided to come back for a sixth year after receiving a medical redshirt and he will look to cap off his memorable career on a high note.
