Goodyear, a three-star prospect, also holds an offer from Iowa State and these two schools are in prime position to receive a commitment.
"The Cincinnati offer is a huge blessing to me," Goodyear stated. "I've always been around the UC program growing up, and now to have the opportunity to play for them is just a dream."
"The camp experience was great and Coach (Ron) Crook is just a fantastic offensive line coach," he added. "I also think Coach (Luke) Fickell is doing a great job turning the program around, and it's fun seeing the changes they're making."
"Again, Cincinnati is a dream place to play for me and I'm very excited to have the chance to play here," he continued.
With over 20 offers to his credit, Goodyear has shown college recruiters he has the ability to play at the next level.
"I'd like to make my decision before my senior season if possible," he said.
