Only a incoming junior at Dixie High School (Ft Mitchell, Kentucky), the 6-foot-5, 225-pound signal caller came away surprised about what he saw at Cincinnati.
"Coach (Butch) Jones is a great guy. I was very surprised by what I saw at UC. I did not know they had such great facilities and their adding more."
While Pike has heavy interest in the Bearcats, he's also finding programs from across the country adding to his ever growing list of verbal offers.
"Boston College offered me the other day. They wanted me to come to camp but said they didn't want to wait and offered me anyway. Oklahoma State has also offered and so did Iowa. I'm heading down to Clemson tonight and may camp at Michigan State on Saturday."
Pike is a player the Bearcats will need to work hard on getting into the fold early. Bearcat Insider will continue to follow up with Zeke in the coming weeks and months.
