Is Arryn Chenault A Bearcat?

We talked with safety Arryn Chenault to get the latest in his recruiting.

With a coaching change at Cincinnati, Arryn Chenault saw programs like Illinois and Michigan State showing renewed interest. The Scout.com 3-star safety out of Fairfield (Ohio) made the choice to give Butch Jones a chance and took his official visit this past weekend with many of the other verbal commitments in the Class of 2010. How did it go?

"I'm a Bearcat!" Chenault told Bearcat Insider on Thursday night. "I'm solid and I'm done with my recruiting."

With Chris Williams as his host Chenault had a chance to hang with some of the current players and also with the coaching staff getting to learn more about them in a short time.

"I went on my visit with my father and it went really well. I bonded with the coaches and players and had a chance to meet some of my future teammates. Coach Jones and his staff are very energetic and you can see they really care about you as a person and a player."

As for his future Chenault also got some answers.

"Right now they don't know if the defense is going to be the 3-4 or the 4-3, but they see me as a safety."

As with most visits the chance to bond with future teammates brings up talk. What was Arryn hearing from other members of the Class of 2010?

"Talking with Tre Boston, Jibreel Black and Preston Brown, I came away feeling they all were going to be Bearcats. If we can keep these guys together we're going to do some great things at Cincinnati in the years to come."

While Arryn and his father ate well it was the chance to spend time with the coaching staff that has put him in the position to end his recruitment and get back to a normal life.

"I know I'm glad I don't have to be talking with all these coaches now and can just sit back and enjoy the rest of my senior year."

With Arryn and Clint Shepherd solid in the Class of 2010 things are starting to look good. Bearcat Insider will continue to check with more members of the class to learn what their thoughts are about their college future.
