With fellow teammate Jordan Griffin receiving an offer from Cincinnati, they also offered cornerback Aaron Covington of Armwood High School. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Covington is a playmarker with ball skills and instinct.
Covington put up solid numbers in his junior campaign with 37 tackles, four interceptions, eleven pass break ups, two forced fumbles and three touchdowns. With offers on the table from Toledo, UCF and South Florida, he's excited about the Bearcats offer.
"It's a blessing to get a offer from any school but UC is a big program and I was excited to receive one from UC," said Covington.
Rated with three stars by Scout.com, looking to build off last season heading into his senior year Covington has a lot of confidence.
"I am just a baller," he said when asked what people can except from him. "I make big plays!"
