"It is truly a blessing to receive this offer." Gourdine said. "I got the call around dinner time, my parents were with me. Basically the coach said they were offering me a full ride scholarship and that I had to continue to do well in school and on the field. I was very excited to receive the offer, my mom and dad were very excited that they called my grandparents to spread the news. It was an awesome feeling and ultimately a great night." Gourdine recently visited Cincinnati's campus and say he definitely like what he saw.
I had the opportunity to see Cincinnati's campus, when I attended a football camp there." Gourdine replied. "I love the campus and the area, I could definitely see myself out there. I also have to admit I love the jerseys, which is always a nice bonus."
"Cincinnati was my first BCS offer." Gourdine said. "That's huge for me, so I definitely hold them in high esteem. However, I still appreciate my current offers from BGSU and EMU and I don't take them for granted.
Gourdine hopes to receive more offers as time goes on and is looking forward to Central Michigan Junior Day which takes place on March 17th.
