I would like to thank Mark for taking the time and talking about how his recruiting is going. Will Mark become a Bearcat? We won't find that out for a few months. But during our talk he seemed to be enjoying what he saw at UC and may give the Bearcats a hard look when all is said and done. Good Luck Mark!
