Hamilton (OH) offensive lineman Ben Flick was put in a tough position following the Cincinnati coaching staff. The long time Bearcat commit got a better feel for Cincinnati’s future after talking with offensive coordinator Eddie Gran this week.
“(Coach Gran) basically told me the new staff isn’t going to pull any scholarships, and they’re going to try and keep this class together,” Flick said.
“He said the staff is coming together, and they’ll know soon who the assistants are. It was nice to talk to a member of the new staff and get a feel for Cincinnati’s future.”
Flick discussed his commitment status with Bearcat Lair.
“I’m open to new schools and everything without being decommitted,” Flick explained. “I would still say I’m pretty strong in my commitment to Cincinnati.”
The Hamilton High School star is eager to meet the new staff in person.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the new coaches. I’ll probably have to wait a while because of the no contact period, but I’m definitely looking forward to my official visit on the 18th of January.”
A few schools have already contacted Flick following Butch Jones’ move to Tennessee.
“Bowling Green, Marshall, and Colorado have all called me. I’m not taking them out of the picture.”
The 6-foot-6, 265-pound lineman is a 2-star prospect according to 247sports.com. He has offers from Western Michigan, Marshall and Bowling Green among others.
