Big East recruiting breakdown

Here's a look at how programs in the Big East are faring on the recruiting trail heading into national signing day on Feb. 6.


Commitments: 15
ESPN 300 commitments: 0
Who they have: The Bearcats' class has seen a lot of jumbling lately, in large part because of new coach Tommy Tuberville. The former Texas Tech coach has not honored some commitments made to previous coach Butch Jones, which Tuberville is within his right to do. Three-star running back Rodriguez Moore (Bastrop, La./East Mississippi C.C.) is the Bearcats' top commitment and was one of Tuberville's first at Cincinnati. Three-star linebacker Rasheen Jones (Cincinnati/Northwest) had a nice-size offer list and stuck with the Bearcats despite the change. Three-star quarterback Javon Harrison (Huber Heights, Ohio/Wayne) is also from the area and rode it out with Cincinnati. The Bearcats also recently got three-star receiver Mark Barr Jr. (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas) to flip from Marshall.
Who they want: Tuberville has turned his attention almost solely to the Southeast to mine some commitments just before signing day. The Bearcats have hosted several official visitors in January. Three-star running back Robert Davis (Tampa, Fla./Carrollwood Day) loved his Jan. 11 visit and said the Bearcats are in his top three.
