Saddler To Pledge Big East

Indiana safety prospect will end his recruiting on Friday morning giving a pledge to a Big East program.

Will Saddler of Columbus East High School has made the rounds and seen enough to end his recruiting early. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound safety has seen interest climb over the past couple of months and after taking several visits will travel to Cincinnati on Friday with his parents and grandparents to give Bearcats head coach Brian Kelly the official word he's committed to be a member of the University of Cincinnati's football program."

"The more schools I visited the more I saw that Cincinnati was the place I wanted to be," Saddler told Scout.com on Thursday night. "I'm going to campus for a practice on Friday and my parents and grandparents are going with me and I'll give my commitment while I'm there."

While several programs showed interest in his services it was his on campus visit and returned trip that sealed the deal for Saddler. "When I was there you could just see how the program was very family based. The coaches show they care about you and the facilities at Cincinnati are second to none and growing."

For Saddler his travel to college prospect was a bit different as he had to sit out his first five games of his junior season because he transferred schools. But it looks as if it paid off as he earned several scholarship offers over the past two months.
