CENTERS FOR EVERYONE

This year there seems to be an abundance of center prospects and Sunday was no different in Cincinnati. However, the Bearcats have already found their future center in Massillon Washington offensive lineman Nathaniel Devers and despite having solid days these two prospects look to be on the outside looking in.

Eric Lorenzen from Olentangy (Ohio) Liberty had a strong showing during one-on-one drills keeping a solid base and winning the majority of his drills. With solid technique Lorenzen is a player who should find a taker if he can continue the type of performance he showed at Cincinnati. The biggest issue for Lorenzen will be that he stands just over 6-foot-1.

Mason Butler is much like Lorenzen as the Minerva (Ohio) lineman stands just over 6-foot-1, 287-pounds. With great technique, Butler had no problem during one-on-one drills and looked to turn a few heads from several visiting coaches from the Mid American Conference.

GUARDS/TACKLES

There were several guards and tackles getting looks from the Bearcats during one-on-one drills as Simon Kenton product Ben Walling looks the part at just over 6-foot-5, 275-pounds. However, Walling didn't have his best day on this day.

Caleb Yates traveled from Okland (Tenn.) for Bearcats camp and while he currently holds offers from Middle Tennessee, Western Kentucky and UAB, the 6-foot-3, 275-pounder looks to have come up short on his bid of earning an offer on this day from the Bearcats.

Lakota East running back Bobby Brown came in at a solid 5-foot-11, 203-pounds. Brown knew coming into camp season he needed to post some solid forty times and from our stopwatch it looked like Brown was in the 4.70 range during drills.

Moeller defensive end Chalmer Frueauf was in attendance on Sunday and did a solid job during one-on-one drills coming off the edge. Frueauf is getting ready to head off to several camps including Duke, Marshall, Northwestern and Indiana. We feel Frueauf is definitely a Division One prospect and his offers from Akron, Kent State, Ohio, Bowling Green and Western Kentucky prove this. However, at this time the Bearcats may be looking for someone who runs a litter better.

Shelby Wilson out of Anderson High School is a new name on the radar and while he clearly passes the look test, he showed some stiffness and by our stopwatch was around 5.0 in his forty.

TROTWOOD-MADISON IN BEARCATS HOUSE

State runner-up Trotwood-Madison brought eight prospects to camp on Sunday and head coach Maurice Douglass was seen talking with Coach Tuberville early in camp.

Defensive back Romello Crisp posted what looked like a 4.44 forty during camp. However, standing 5-foot-6 will probably see the Bearcats passing at this stage of the game.

Teammate Kei Beckham looked like he had a solid day during drills. However, at 5-foot-11, 157-pounds, Beckham is extremely light as compared to other defensive backs the Bearcats have recruited since Coach Tuberville has taken over the program. The Bearcats will have to keep an eye on Beckham as he's a 2015 prospect and could add the weight needed over the next year to have more of a chance to earn an offer from the Bearcats.

Cincinnati still has several camps remaining in the coming days with Senior Camps and team camps.
