After the Bearcats loss to West Virginia on Wednesday night, Bearcat Insider spoke with four players about the game, and what direction they feel the team will take.
True Freshman Cedric Tolbert saw an early season knee injury slow down his progress. But the Xenia native was quick to respond and has seen increased playing time as the season progresses.
Redshirt Freshman Trevor Canfield was fighting for early playing time coming out of preseason camp. But while he didn't earn it to start, he forced the Bearcats staff to call upon him for help at the right guard position by the sixth game of the season and hasn't looked back. Trevor has seized the chance and been a solid performer since taking over the starting job.
True Freshman Terrill Byrd came into Cincinnati with much hype. Bearcat fans soon learned his play on the field was no hype, but just plain old-fashion football. Trevor has started every game of his Bearcat career.
Sophomore Haruki Nakamura may be a fan favorite for his hard hitting style. But Bearcat coaches know there is more to his game then just big hits. The Elyria, Ohio native and is one of the defensive stat leaders this season.
