Like the other football-rich cities in Florida, the Bearcats are also recruiting nearby, northward Indy. UC recently offered Indianapolis running back Gerrid Doaks. During his junior season, Doaks rushed for 1,242 yds., 15 TDs, and averaged almost 6 yds. a carry.
For now, Doaks has offers from the basketball-centric Indiana Hoosiers and some MAC schools. If the first half of his senior season goes well, I expect more interest from other programs.
This isn’t the first time the Bearcats have dipped into the talent pool at Lawrence North. Senior LB Kevin Brown played there, as well. Hopefully Doaks follows the lead of his Circle City predecessor and chooses Clifton.
