The Cincinnati Bearcats were very good in 2018. They should be very good in 2019 as well. As we’ve gotten more news about what the roster will look like in 2020 and beyond, it is clear that the Bearcats have a pretty solid chance at being very good for many years to come. On Thursday, the Bearcats’ 2020 recruiting class got a bit more talent with the commitment of Tyler Scott.
Scott could be able to fill a number of roles for the Bearcats and that in of itself means the class just added some serious depth. As a three-star prospect who is listed as an athlete, meaning he is not projected for a specific position as of yet, Scott could end up standing in wherever the Bearcats need him. He has caught passes, returned kicks, lined up at running back and even lent a hand on defense during his high school career. The Bearcats are preparing for changes to many positional groups across the program in the next few years, but having a player like Scott who can wear a number of hats will make it that much easier to construct the depth chart in 2020 and beyond.
Scott is also yet another addition from in-state as Luke Fickell and his staff continue their ability to ensure that players in Ohio choose to play at UC. Scott is the the No. 42 recruit in the state according to 247 Sports and the No. 37 prospect according to Rivals.
Scott joins Norman Love as the second player for the 2020 class with the athlete positional categorization. He is also the second player to commit to the program this week and has helped boost the entire class to a top 50 standing nationally by both 247 Sports and Rivals.
