“UC is a great fit because he offers the ability to run the ball and catch it out of the backfield,” Childers said. “(UC is) somewhere he always had his eye on as a kid. Most importantly, it’s about the people and the culture. Coach (Luke) Fickell, Coach Gino (Guidugli) and Coach (Marcus) Freeman were great during the process. They are a class act.”
UC (2-3) plays host to Central Florida (3-0) at 8 p.m. Saturday at Nippert Stadium on ESPNU.
