Bearcat ‘Crootin: Football Offers and Baseball too

This week, there were a few commitments and a normal helping of offers, although one came from a different source than usual.

If you’ve grown tired of football commitments, then this was the week for you, as Cincinnati added a wing shooter for the 2017 class with the commitment of three-star small forward Trevor Moore.

If you just can’t get enough football commitments, then you were in luck as well. Tyrone Chambers, a defensive tackle for the 2017 class, also made a commitment to UC.

However, if your very survival depends on UC sending out offers to potential recruits then you are in luck (and also suffering from a very specific medical condition).

Let’s start on defense. Chambers may have already committed, but a partner in the trenches could be on the way in Ben Hutch, a 300-pound defensive tackle from Nashville, Tennessee. Hutch is a three-star recruit according to both 247Sports and Rivals, and he has double-digit offers. 247Sports is reporting that Hutch is leaning heavily toward Louisville, but that he also has interest in Tennessee and Memphis. Ranked the No. 29 recruit in the state and the No. 57 DT of the 2017 class, he will clearly be a welcome addition to any program. Take a look at some of Hutch's highlights from his junior season.

Ovie Oghoufo, who 247Sports thinks Michigan State has all but wrapped up, got an offer from UC this week. A 6’3", 190-pound outside linebacker from Farmington, Michigan, he has a whopping 16 offers on the table. Along with the Spartans, Notre Dame, Boston College and a host of other squads are all vying for his attention. Watch below for highlights from the 2018 class recruit's sophomore season.

Staying on the defensive side, Patrick Lupro could very well be helping UC lock down opponents in the near future after receiving his offer. The 2018 class recruit plays cornerback for Belleville in Michigan and added the Bearcats to his list of total offers, which now stands at four. The other schools that have sent offers are Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan and Toledo, although Ohio State has shown interest.

We'll wrap things up with an offer from an unlikely source: the baseball program. That's right, Ty Neal is hoping to add another potential future member of the Bearcats in the Big Leagues crew. Garrett Schoenle, a 6'5" pitcher from Fort Wayne, Indiana announced his offer last weekend. A three-sport athlete who also plays quarterback for Northrop High School, Schoenle was named to the USA Today American Family Insurance ALL-USA Indiana Baseball Team and helped Northrop to a 20-5 record this past season.
