Hammond Lands Number-One

Hallandale (FL) wide receiver Joshua Hammond is a 2016 prospect of note in the state of Florida, and he landed his first offer Wednesday afternoon. Cincinnati made their intent known to the player after seeing him in action this spring.

Joshua Hammond has been drawing recruiting interest since the first of the year, and Wednesday afternoon saw the 2016 wide receiver pick up his first offer.

Hammond, 6-foot-1, 180-pounds, was offered by Cincinnati. The Bearcats scouted Hammond this spring in person, and became the first school to offer.

"It feels great to have this offer," Hammond stated. "It's a special moment for sure, but I need to continue to stay humble and keep working. My head coach told me about the offer today in school."

"Cincinnati was at my school to see me earlier this spring," he added. "I spoke to Coach (Eddie) Gran today, and he said they want me to visit this summer. He said he's hoping I become a Bearcat. I knew they were interested when they were at my school, but I never expected the offer."

"I'm definitely interested in Cincinnati and will consider them going forward," he continued. "I might be going up there for camp this summer, and I need to speak to my dad about that."

Several other top programs are also showing interest in Hammond.

"I'm hearing from Tennessee, Auburn, LSU, Pittsburgh, and a few others," he explained. "I'm going to go to camp at Tennessee, Florida Atlantic, South Florida and Florida State. There could be a few other schools too."

Hammond is the younger brother of former Florida Gator and current Kansas City Chief wide receiver Frankie Hammond.
