The Cincinnati Bearcats and Miami RedHawks will gather at Nippert Stadium on Saturday afternoon for the 121-st time. As the second-oldest rivalry in the NCAA FBS, the Battle for the Victory Bell always has it’s twist and surprises.
But one thing you can always expect is recruits to attend one of the longest running rivalries and Saturday will no exception.
Who is expected to be in attendance?
We start with one prospect who will be taking his official visit with the Bearcats.
Zenden Dellinger out of Fort Wayne (Ind.) R Nelson high school is a 6-foot-6, 270-pound offensive tackle prospect and something the Bearcats really need in this class. Dellinger holds offers from Illinois, South Florida and a few Mid-American Conference programs as well as from the Bearcats.
Another high level target expected to be on campus for an unofficial visit is Cincinnati Colerain lineman Howard Watkins.
Watkins is still looking at the Bearcats and holds offers from several programs including Illinois, Indiana, Louisville and more.
The Bearcats singed in the 2016 class offensive lineman Zach Bycznski out of Berea (Ohio) Midpark high school. Headed to Clifton this weekend will be Class of 2019 quarterback Trevor Bycznski and 2020 offensive lineman Jared Bycznski.
Another Visit To Future Home
Making return visits to Nippert for the Battle for the Victory Bell will be the first member of the class, wide receiver Jalen Walker out of Carmel (Ind.). He’ll be joined by quarterback pledge Desmond Ridder (Louisville (KY) St. Xavier HS), offensive lineman Cody Lamb (Miamisburg, Ohio), defensive end Jamal Hines (Cincinnati Princeton) and kicker Cole Smith (Middletown, Ohio). All have been committed for a few months and have taken advantage of each opportunity to visit their future home.
