QUOTABLE: I have been talking to Cincinnati since the beginning of my junior year. I went on an official visit to go visit the school in September. I chose the University of Cincinnati because of the outstanding academics and great team environment they have. The coaches were incredibly supportive and outgoing to make me fall in love with the school and the team dynamics. The team made me feel welcome and it was truly a family-environment among them. The moment I stepped on campus I knew Cincinnati was going to be an incredible place to go. I can't wait until next fall to be a part of such an incredible team. — Noah Smith
