Welcome to this week's installment of "Weekly Whispers," our weekly series in which we keep Bearcat Nation updated on the latest recruiting news for the Cincinnati Bearcats. Lets see what happened this week on the recruiting trail.
Geddis and Summers to see Cincy
On October 31st, the Bearcats will host UCF for an in-conference battle at Nippert Stadium. They will also be hosting two WR's in this year's recruiting cycle -- '16 WR Thomas Geddis of Blanche Ely (FL) and '16 WR Tyrin Summers of Clewiston (FL).
Corey Bender of Scout.com dropped the news of Geddis making the visit. The 6'2, 160-pounder briefly spoke with me about the upcoming visit to the Queen City. "I am looking forward to seeing how they run their program, meeting the coaching staff, seeing how campus life is, and just observing the city of Cincinnati," he said. Geddis mentioned offensive coordinator Eddie Gran as the coach that he has built the best relationship with during the process. Could a good visit to Clifton end things for the sunshine state pass-catcher? "I'm planning on waiting to make my decision once I am done taking all of my official visits. But a good visit can most definitely keep them on the top of my list," Geddis stated. Geddis concluded by saying Massachusetts, Temple, Toledo, South Florida, and Wisconsin are schools also in the mix for his commitment.
The other prospect that'll make the trip from Florida according to Bender is Tyrin Summers, a 5'9, 160-pounder who already has a UC offer under his belt. Other programs that are in pursuit of Summers by dropping him a scholarship offer would be Miami (FL), Oregon State, South Carolina, West Virginia, and more.
Henderson snags UC offer
"It was expected, I just didn't know how soon. I was still excited for it" -- those are the words of '17 ATH Christopher Henderson, a three-star prospect from Columbus (FL). The Miami native said he got news of the offer one day after UC made an appearance at his high school. One would think that coach was Eddie Gran, one already linked to other Florida prospects above. As far as the Bearcats go, "they'll be in the mix," Henderson said.
