Wide Receiver Picks Bearcats

Wide receiver Jason Sherman says he will play for the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Jacksonville, Fla.--Wide receiver Jason Sherman said Monday night, "I have given my verbal commitment to Cincinnati."

The 6-4, 195-pound wide receiver from First Coast High notes that he enjoyed his visit to Auburn over the weekend, but didn't get a scholarship offer from the Tigers.

"If I get an offer from Auburn, I will deal with that if it happens," he says.

"I really like the coaching staff at Cincinnati and it is a good situation for me," he says. "I can see myself playing there and being successful."

He also took an official visit to the University of Illinois, the first college to offer him a scholarship.

Sherman visited Auburn over the weekend along with his teammate, Alex Rose, a wide receiver who has committed to Auburn.
