Cincinnati had a very productive weekend on the recruiting trail as the Bearcats secured commitments from a pair of three-star offensive weapons, multiple sources report.
Marcus Levy (Fort Pierce, Fla./Central), a 5-foot-11, 185-pounds, selected Cincinnati over scholarship offers from Bowling Green, Florida International, Georgia State, Kentucky, UMass, Mississippi State and South Carolina.
"When I went to camp there, everything felt really good," Levy told the TCPalm. "I got to talk to the coaches and a couple of the other players who committed and I felt really comfortable. Being up there was a very big factor. Everything is right there and the football team felt like a family. I know about the weather, but it's been pretty nice from what I've seen."
Levy was a first team Class 7A All-State selection last season after rushing for 1,382 yards and 18 touchdowns and posting 409 receiving yards and three more scores.
Dual-threat signal-caller Javon Harrison decommitted from Toledo in order to join the Bearcats' class. Air Force, Boston College, Eastern Illinois and Ohio were his other offers while Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan State and Northwestern recruited the 6-foot-1, 210-pound prospect. Cincinnati.com reports that Harrison is expected to play safety for the Big East program.
