The UC Football team has a had a bunch of bad news since losing the season finale at home on senior night to Kansas, 49-16.

On Tuesday, they got some good news and so did the fanbase.

Cincinnati defensive lineman Dontay Corleone will not be going to the NFL as was expected.

The Bearcats’ defensive star is returning for the 2024 season.

The Bearcats nose guard was definitely one of the top prospects at his position for the upcoming NFL Draft. But returning to school, Corleone has a chance to continue improvement in his game and if the Bearcats can improve from 3-9 to at least to the .500 level, it could really boost his NFL stock.
