Still Available: S Michael Cirino

Ventura S Michael Cirino (6-1, 202) has seen recruiting pick up over the past couple of weeks...

"I currently have offers from Saginaw Valley State, Dixie State and Northeastern State and I've also been talking to West Texas A&M and Towson," Cirino told recently. "Hawaii just started talking to me a couple of weeks ago and they want to get my transcripts as soon as possible to see where I stand"

As a sophomore this past season for Ventura, Cirino finished with 43 tackles, five pass breakups and two interceptions from his safety spot.

"I played mostly safety, but I can play corner and nickel back too," Cirino said.

After a solid prep career at Poinciana High School in Kissimmee, Florida, Cirino decided to sign with Charleston Southern, but after a year there, he decided to leave and start fresh and Ventura made the most sense even though they were completely across the country.

"Some former guys from Charleston Couthern, Lakeith Murray and Greg Cuthbertson, were out here at Ventura and I got in contact with them and they were just telling me about the program stuff and how they just came off a 10-0 season," Cirino noted.

Cirino is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in early June and he will have two years to play two starting in the fall.
