#42 Brent Black
West Chester, Ohio/Lakota West
How Black Came To UC
Brent Black has taken the long road to the University of Cincinnati. Black, who came to Southwest Ohio from Texas was a basketball player that Lakota West football coach Larry Cox talked into playing football as a senior.
That first year Black showed his raw athletic ability and signed with NAIA Bethel College (Tennessee) before finding the town was just way too small for a kid use to the city.
Having transferred to Cincinnati, Black is a walk-on football player that has a lot of skills and the physical frame any coach dream about working with.
So Far This Spring
With a great physical build, Brent Black sticks out whey you scan the field of players. Built more like a safety or linebacker, Black has great raw skills but will need work if he's going to transfer his raw ability into a solid college football player.
If Black is a project he's the type of project you hope works out because he shows a lot of pure athletic ability. Hope would be he's capable of earning special teams play and uses this spring to get back into a football mode and pick up the tools needed to be a high level defensive back.
Strength: Pure Athlete
Weakness: Football Knowledge and Skills
