The Cincinnati Bearcats have picked up three-star cornerback Devin Neal. Although Neal is listed as a cornerback on 247 Sports, in his film he spends a lot of his time playing safety, and the way he plays safety should have Cincinnati fans excited.
Luke Fickell loves for his teams to play physically and this seems to be a perfect fit for what Cincinnati wants, because Neal is definitely not afraid to come up from the back of the secondary and lay the wood on offensive players.
Also, with him being listed at 5’11” he plays much bigger than that and even on film he looks much bigger and he is already really filled out for a player who hasn’t even started his senior season in high school yet. This appears to be a perfect fit between player and program.
