Time will tell on the recruiting front. The reason the class is ranked low is because it only has 15 players due to this being such a young team. Fickell has always been good at evaluating talent and bringing in overlooked players
True but would have liked to see some better quality out of the group. They did pick up a past 4* recruit in high school teammate of UC running back Michael Warren and former UM player, James Hudson. He will have to sit out 2019 but will have 3 years of eligibility if he works out.Time will tell on the recruiting front.

https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2019/cameron-jones-203766 The state of our class is concerning but there's another signing day in February. We got 4 stars Tavion Thomas and Leonard Taylor last year at the February one. I'm sure the coaches will hit the road following the bowl game.On a downer note it was not a good year for Bearcat football recruiting, overall ranked 74 and AAC ranked 7. Nothing above a 3* and highest rated player, Justin Harris, comes in at 698 overall.
Thanks. Was on mobile and didn't have good wifi anymore.
Rumor that Freeman might be OSU's next D - coordinator, have seen very little of UC's games so not sure how good he would do at OSU.Thanks. Was on mobile and didn't have good wifi anymore.
Great for UC to get the VT monkey off their back. I'd be shocked if Fickell is still the coach this time next year. Hope they can keep Marcus Freeman so he can eventually take over.
He wasn't a take for most of those schools. He's incredibly raw and got hurt early in the season. Most of those schools wanted to see how he progressed his senior year. However, UC's offensive line was pretty darn good this past year. Whoever the coach is, should he stay, should be able to mold Allen into a possible draft pick.3* - Jonathan Allen - OT - 6'6" - 310 LB
He appears to be the only significant addition today.
He went to HS with Tavion Thomas. That could be why he chose UC over a trough of big programs, including Penn State, Michigan, Wisconsin, WVU, and Ohio State!
Hoping he turns out better than his star rating!
