Wednesday night at around 10 p.m. the University of Cincinnati offered St. Xavier offensive tackle John Kurtz.
This is his first offer from a BCS conference school and Kurtz happy about it saying "It's exciting because it's my first BCS level offer.
As Kentuckypreps.com reported on Sept. 18th, representatives from Cincinnati were at St. Xavier's game against Archbishop Moeller (Ohio). That must have finalized their decision to pull the trigger and offer Kurtz.
He and the coaches are already on a friendly basis as well, as he camped there in the summer. "I felt very comfortable with the coaches at camp and I am very excited to go up there and see more of the program."
This offer adds to his two others, one from WKU and the other from Ball State. Illinois is another school interested in the offensive lineman from Louisville.
