Tommy Tuberville's first recruiting class at Cincinnati comes with an emphasis on playing now.
The Bearcats' new coach had seven junior college transfers among his recruiting class of 22 players on Wednesday, more than he usually gets. Tuberville tried to fill openings in the defensive secondary with more experienced players. He thinks the Bearcats will be in good shape if they can fill those holes quickly.
The recruiting class includes one quarterback, Brent Stockstill from Tennessee. His father, Rick, is the head coach at Middle Tennessee State and a former Florida State quarterback.
Starting quarterback Brendon Kay returns for one more season in 2013.
