Dayton (Ohio) 2018 defensive back Jadon Furlow attended his first college football game during last week's Bearcats battle with USF.

One of the more under the radar prospects in Ohio for the 2018 class is Dayton (Ohio) Belmont athlete Jadon Furlow. The first year football player impressed several over the summer but his visit to Cincinnati was a first.

In the summer the Cincinnati Bearcats got two looks at Dayton (Ohio) Belmont athlete Jadon Furlow as he attended the Midwest Gridiron Showcase and a camp on campus.

Last week, Furlow made a return trip to Cincinnati to watch the Bearcats in game action.

“It was a great first time experience at Cincinnati,” said Furlow.  “To be able to experience my first college game, it was really fun and I learned more about the UC program.”

While Furlow has excelled on the hardwood and ball diamonds in the past, his raw athletic ability at 6-foot-1, 175-pounds has several programs interested.  His game day experience also allowed for him to learn more about the main position he’s playing, cornerback.

“I watched their corners a lot,” he said.  “Especially the techniques they used and the types of difference coverages they use.  It really allowed me to see how bit they are and what I need to work towards.”

Current Bearcat defensive lineman Landon Brazile waiting until his senior year of high school playing for current Belmont head coach Earl White.

What would it mean for Furlow to earn an offer from the Bearcats?

“It would be a great thing to get an offer from Cincinnati,” he said.  “It would be a school I could see myself playing at.”
