Is Black A Bearcat?

Jibreel Black joined several other Cincinnati verbal commitments this past weekend for his official visit. Did the visit stop his recruiting? Or is there still a chance Black could leave the city. We get the latest.

While Jibreel Black was all excited about his official visit with new Cincinnati head coach Butch Jones and his staff there are still a few options opened for the 4-star defensive lineman. Where does Jibreel now stand in his recruitment?

"I had a great time on my official visit with all of the guys and had a chance to get to know the coaches. I really liked what I saw while there and feel Cincinnati is a place I'll be able to do a lot of good things."

While things went well has the tag of "Soft Verbal" seen its days?

"Right now I don't see myself as a soft verbal. I'm a Bearcat. But I'm going to take my visits to Michigan State, Indiana and Michigan between now and signing day to make sure I cover all the bases."

Getting the chance to hang out with several of the other members of the class seemed to pull some strings.

"I think a lot of us feel a lot better now about what has happened. It looks like a lot of the guys are going to stay with UC and that is a very good sign."

While Jibreel didn't want to go into too much detail about his visit he did come away feeling good about the staff and the direction Coach Jones and his staff will take the program.

We'll be checking back with Jibreel in the coming weeks as he returns from his other visits.
