Luke Fickell and his staff received rave reviews for their work on the 2018 recruiting trail, but getting one good class is not a destination, its just part of the journey. That meas the 2019 class needs to be built and the Cincinnati Bearcats are already working on it. Yesterday, Cameron Jones announced his commitment to UC, joining Brody Ingle, who committed in April.
I just want to thank God and give him all the Glory for this opportunity! Words cannot describe this feeling. Years and years of chasing this dream and giving my life to the game has paid off. Big thanks to all of my family, coaches, and friends! I am committing to UC ⚫️ pic.twitter.com/XBYTfyjRzN— Cameron Jones (@Cam_J14) May 9, 2018
Jones only got an offer from UC about a month ago and it didn’t take long for him to jump on board. He had eight other offers on the table, including ones from Western Kentucky and Western Michigan, as well as some interest from Kentucky. The two-star quarterback from Lexington, Kentucky is a tall fellow, standing 6’8”. He is considered the No. 78 pro-style quarterback in the 2019 class by 247 Sports.
Ingle has a bit more prestige on his side and is a local target. Playing for La Salle in Cincinnati, the outside linebacker ins a three-star prospect who ranks as the No. 136 player at his position for the 2019 class. He has generally received interest from teams in the region, with Bowling Green, Miami-Ohio and Ball State among the teams to send him an offer. He will join Jarell White and Josh Whyle as players on the roster from La Salle and would be the 15th player on the current roster from Cincinnati itself.
For now, Jones and Ingle are the entire 2019 class, but there’s no doubt Fickell and company will be adding more players as the months go on.
