Running back Akise Teague (Youngstown, Ohio/Ursuline) said in a text message tonight that he has committed to Cincinnati.

The 5-foot-8 and 180-pound Teague selected the Bearcats over
scholarship offers from Wisconsin, Miami of Ohio, Bowling Green and
Youngstown State.

Teague was also drawing interest from Ohio State, but the Buckeyes
did not offer a scholarship and it was questionable whether they would
have had room for him in their 2011 recruiting class.

Teague, who is on his official visit to Cincinnati this weekend, did not need to be in the Queen City long to know he wanted to be a Bearcat.

“I got along with everyone as soon as I got down here,” Teague said.  “That’s what impressed me the most – the players.”

Teague also feels the Cincinnati football program fits him well.

“I think their offense will benefit me the most,” he said.  “There is a good chance to play as a freshman.”

Going into the Division V state championship game Teague had led
Ursuline to a 14-0 record by gaining 2,223 yards with 32 rushing
touchdowns.  Teague had 3,960 all-purpose yards with 43 total
touchdowns.  He also had six interceptions playing cornerback.

Teague then led Ursuline to a 51-21 title game victory over
Coldwater.  His spectacular season concluded with his being named
Ohio’s Mr. Football.
