"I called Coach Coombs and he said they are offering me," Stepp said, "I have not been to campus but I've been to Cincinnati a few times. I'm really interested. I'm trying to visit there this Saturday, we're trying to work something out. I'm super excited, I hear the facilities are amazing."
The 6'0, 280-lb Stepp already had offers from Ball State, Northern Illinois and Central Michigan. The Bearcats are the first BCS conference school to extend a scholarship offer, but he is heading on the road soon to make sure it is not his last.
Recently, a close friend and fellow blue chip recruit got the ball rolling for Stepp to head into ACC country.
"They contacted me a few weeks ago through the Luallens," Stepp continued, "I'm going to go with them to camp on June 14th and there is a good chance I can get offered."
After that Stepp says he will head back to Cincinnati for their camp, which immediately follows the Yellowjackets.'
