The answer is no. Always no

Crunch Time for Cincinnati Recruiting // Bearcats Nation
A Good primer on the state of the Bearcats recruiting. In short it's great. This looks like the best and deepest class in recent UC history. 9 members of the class are already enrolled in classes and on campus taking part in off season drills
