Bearcats Offer 2015 Running Back

Cincinnati heads back to a school they are familiar with to hand out another offer in the 2015 recruiting class.

The Cincinnati coaching staff is no stranger to Hialeah (Fla.) Champagnat Catholic High School as they have already secured the commitment of three-star running back Franklin Labady from the school.

Now, offensive coordinator Eddie Gran has returned to extend a couple of more offers including one to 2015 prospect Michael Fredrick who was the backup to Labady until the future Bearcat went down with an injury.

"Yes, I have been told by my coach Mike Tunsil that I have an offer from Cincinnati," said Fredrick. "This is my second offer as my first offer came from Temple University. I've not talked with any of the coaches up there yet as they are talking with my coach."

This past season Fredrick proved himself in helping his team win a state championship by posting some solid numbers.

"I rushed for 1,022 yards and 12 touchdowns," he said. "I was backing up Franklin (Labady) until he got hurt."

At 5-foot-11, 170-pounds, Fredrick has in mind what he would like to do in college but is remaining open.

"I would prefer to play running back," said Fredrick. "But I can adjust to any position."

As for what he knows about the Bearcats, the Florida native knows he's got some catching up to do.

"I don't know a lot about Cincinnati academically or football wise," he said. "I've not done any research on them yet, but know they are a Division One school and I saw them play and they are a very good team. I hope to come up in the summer to learn more."
