What a weekend for recruiting in the Queen City!

Several Cincinnati area football players from the 2009 class made oral commitments this past weekend as a sign that recruiting season is in high gear as July 4 approaches.

Two players committed to the Big Ten, while two teammates committed to the University of Cincinnati.

Cincinnati Sycamore wide receiver Steve Hull orally committed to Illinois. Hull, who is 6 feet 2 and 180 pounds, also considered Cincinnati and Louisville, according to Sycamore coach Scott Dattilo.

“I believe Illinois is a great fit,” Dattilo said. “He was given a scholarship as a wide receiver and Illinois runs the spread offense where many receivers are on the field. He has tremendous speed and great hands. I expect him to do very well there.”

Hull, who also played safety last season, had 16 receptions for 295 yards (29.5 ypc.) and three touchdowns. Hull had eight interceptions as an all-Greater Miami Conference safety in 2007. He is also the Aviators’ punter.

“He will do a little of everything for us this year,” Dattilo said.

Cincinnati Indian Hill wide receiver/tight end Ted Bolser made a pledge to Indiana over the weekend after the Hoosiers offered June 24. Bolser also had interest from Louisville and the University of Kentucky.

Bolser, who is 6-5 and 212 pounds, was third in the Cincinnati Hills League in receiving last season. He caught 52 passes for 813 yards, including a 54-yard reception. He had eight touchdowns in 11 games.

His best game came Nov. 2 in a playoff game against Eaton. Bolser had nine receptions for 130 yards and two touchdowns.

Two players from Winton Woods decided to stay close to home and pledged commitments to the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Linebacker Maalik Bomar (6-1, 187) and defensive back Chris Williams (5-11, 185) chose UC over the weekend despite interest from several other programs.

Bomar had offers from the likes of Nebraska, West Virginia and Wisconsin. He had 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles last season.

Williams had offers from Indiana, Minnesota and West Virginia among others. He had two sacks and an interception last season.

Williams is rated the No. 37 best player in Ohio’s 2009 class, according to Ohio High Magazine recruiting editor Duane Long. Bomar is ranked No. 67.
