That hiring certainly impressed Bearcat commit Demetrius Monday, of Fairburn (GA) Arlington Christian, who reaffirmed his commitment to Cincinnati.
"I'm ALL Bearcat," Monday stated. "I'm excited about the new coaching staff, and I heard the news from Coach (Mike) Bajakian, but he didn't know if he would be leaving or staying with Cincinnati. I did my research on Coach (Tommy) Tuberville, and I'm very impressed with him."
"I know he won at Auburn in the SEC, and had a great record," he added. "I'm just as excited to play for Coach Tuberville as I was to play for Coach Jones. Coaches have to do what's best for them, but I committed to the school and I'm totally solid to Cincinnati. I will be reporting next June, and I'm looking forward to starting my career."
