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.
UC hosts Geddis
Two weeks ago, our "Weekly Whispers" piece covered the news on '16 WR Thomas Geddis, who said he would be making an official visit to Cincinnati on October 31st when the Bearcats squared off against the UCF Knights. Well, just as Geddis said, that visit was made and the 6'2, 160-pounder was able to see UC put a beat down on the opposition with a 52-7 final count.

"I am looking forward to seeing how they run their program," Geddis told Down The Drive two weeks ago. If this past Saturday was any indication of how the university does things, then the Bearcats may have just placed themselves in prime position to land the Blanche Ely (FL) pass-catcher. We'll hopefully catch back up with the two-star prospect this week to get his thoughts and the visit and see if it pushed Cincinnati over the top. Like Geddis mentioned with us previously, Massachusetts, South Florida, Toledo, Temple, and Wisconsin are other schools in pursuit, much like Cincinnati.
Davis, Landers grab Cincy offers
Tommy Tuberville and the Bearcat coaching staff went back to the JUCO ranks for one of their latest offers, which is something they are familiar with doing. It was '16 JUCO CB Devron Davis from Merced College (CA) who was the recipient of the UC offer. The 6'0, 210-pounder is graded as a three-star prospect on the JUCO scale and has received offers from plenty of programs during the recruiting cycle. For now, Davis is currently projected to land in the west coast at either Arizona State or UCLA.
For next years recruiting class, it was '17 ATH Matthew Landers, yet another Floridian, that was on the receiving of an offer sent by the Bearcats. An offer from UC puts them with Florida, Indiana, Iowa State, and Purdue, as the teams to give the Admiral Farragut (FL) prospect a scholarship offer.
