2008 Prospects Excited About UC Visit

With six 2008 Division One prospects on their roster, this group of players are looking forward to their visit with Coach Brian Kelly and the University of Cincinnati coaching staff.

This weekend will see many top-notch football prospects visit the University of Cincinnati campus. One group who had to make a switch in the day of there visit was those from Trotwood-Madison High School. Bearcat Insider checked in with assistant coach Jeremy Beckham to get the latest on which Rams will be making the trip to see Coach Kelly and staff.

As many know the Rams have several talented Division One college prospects for the Class of 2008. Six Rams are set to visit Cincinnati and many feel at least a few will walk away with offers from Coach Kelly before all is said and done.

Leading the way is dual-threat quarterback Domonick Britt. The 6'5 – 190 lb. Britt enjoyed a great junior season posting the following numbers.

Passing: 165-303 – 2,889 yards

Passing TD's: 21

Rushing: 139 – 1,046 yards

Rushing TD's: 9

Some very impressive numbers from a player still in the development stages of his football career. When Coach Beckham was asked about his signal caller he had the following to say.

"Domonick is one of the most exciting players I have ever seen. He makes plays all over the field, and is getting the much deserved attention from the major colleges who are looking for playmakers."

But while Bearcat fans would be excited about having Britt visit, there are more Rams with interest in seeing what the Bearcats new coaching staff is all about. Coach Beckham talked about the changes and why several of his players are excited about making their visit this weekend.

"Our players are extremely excited to be coming down and visiting the University of Cincinnati. There seems to be an exciting new energy into the program, Coach Kelly has made an impression on our program and our kids are chomping at the bit to meet him and his staff."

Joining Britt will be Brandon Moore, Jamiihr Williams, Michael Shaw, Ike Washington and Roy Roundtree.

Moore is considered one of the top tight-ends in the country and has already received several offers from major programs across the country. He's got size 6'6" and a body to build on. He's also got a Cincinnati connection as his brother runs track for the Bearcats.

While others are talking about a few other in-state running backs, many will have a serious problem sticking with Michael Shaw and the talent he possesses. Shaw is a 6'1" – 192 lb. running back / safety prospect who's got all the tools to be considered one of Ohio's best talents.

Also making the trip will be Jamiihr Williams a 6'2 – 215 lb. linebacker who makes an impact whenever he appears at camps and combines with his size and athletic ability. But Williams is not the only linebacker that will be visiting. Ike Washington stands 6'2" – 229 lbs. and is also catching the eyes of many college programs. While Washington projects into a 3 technique defensive lineman, there is one more player joining the group there is no questions about the position he'll play.

Roy Roundtree is a 6'2" – 185 lb. wide receiver prospect with some great athletic ability. This past season he hauled in 48 passes for 851 yards and 7 touchdowns. He has the size and ability the Bearcats staff looks for at the receiver position and shows the hands college coaches look for.
