Desmond Ridder may not have been recruited by Luke Fickell but he was the first recruit to sign up for the next era of Cincinnati Bearcats football.

Ridder is a two-star recruit and a dual-threat quarterback from Louisville. He committed to Cincinnati last May and made an official visit in mid-January.
