Cincinnati currently holds commitments from twenty prospects in the 2015 recruiting class. '15 WR James Gardner of Fort Lauderdale (FL) and '15 WR Braxton Neal of Lakota West (OH) are the lone pledges that are listed at the wide receiver position.
'15 WR Trevon Story from Cleveland is a prospect that the Bearcats are hoping to include in that group and give another playmaker for wide receivers coach Blake Rolan. If UC can get him in the fold, he would be the sixth commit from an in-state prospect joining Doug Bates, Marquise Copeland, Matthew Draper, Bryce Jenkinson and the aforementioned Neal.
Story has received offers from Buffalo, Cincinnati, Eastern Michigan, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Toledo and Western Michigan thus far in the recruiting process. The Bearcats officially joined the picture earlier this year when they offered Story on May 1st.
When asked which schools were recruiting him the hardest, Story replied "Western Michigan and Cincinnati." Since grabbing the offer, he has not been able to make it to UC to check out the campus but he plans to change that sometime soon. "I plan on going down there for a game," Story told Down The Drive.
Despite the fact that he would be coached by Rolan in college, if he chooses Cincinnati, Story is primarily being recruited by cornerbacks coach Steve Clinkscale and he has done well in doing so. When asked if he had a leader for his services, Story replied "Yeah, I like Cincinnati."
The 5'9, 165-pounder is currently ranked as the 1,060th overall player in the 2015 class. The three-star prospect is also the 131st overall player at his position and the 46th overall player in the state of Ohio according to the 247Sports Composite scale.
Story and Glenville will head to Cleveland Heights (OH) on Saturday as they look to bounce back from a rough start. The Tarblooders stand at 0-2 on the season after falling short against Cathedral Prep (PA) and getting routed by St. Edwards (OH).
