Walter Football ranks Cincinnati redshirt junior QB Gunner Kiel as the No. 8 QB in the country.

"After years of hype, Kiel finally stepped onto the field in 2014 and flashed some arm talent," the site noted. Indeed, after a rough start to his career, Kiel threw for 31 touchdowns against 13 interceptions last year. Walter Football graded Kiel as a Rds. 3-5 prospect.

Dolphins signed Cincinnati LB Jeff Luc.

Luc (6'0/251) spent two seasons with the Bearcats after transferring from Florida State, piling up 16.5 tackles for loss, eight forced fumbles, and eight sacks. He ran 4.57/4.61 at the UC Pro Day, adding a 34-inch vertical and 8-foot-10 broad jump. A violent downhill player with very little ability to move laterally, Luc projects as a two-down thumper. There has been some discussion of an NFL team moving Luc to fullback, where his contact-seeking approach could be a nice fit.
May 3 - 5:33 PM

Cincinnati OT Eric Lefeld wasn't invited to the combine.

The four-year starter was also a two-time all-conference pick. "Lefeld was highly rated by many entering the season except league scouts, who were proven correct," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote in December. "He’s a solid college tackle but lacks the balance, athleticism and necessary skills to be anything other than a small area blocker at the next level." The 6-foot-5, 309-pounder will be in an NFL camp this summer, perhaps via a UDFA contract.

Cincinnati DE/OLB Terrell Hartsfield will play in Saturday's Medal of Honor Bowl.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote in October that NFL scouts have been talking about Hartsfield "for awhile now." The 6-foot-3, 246-pounder is a former four-star recruit who runs a forty in the 4.8-second range. "An athletic prospect with natural pass rushing skills, Hartsfield could well sneak into the late rounds if he performs well in pre-draft workouts," Pauline wrote. He now has his chance to do so.
Jan 7 - 6:11 PM

Cincinnati junior WR Shaq Washington had five receptions for 100 yards in Saturday's Military Bowl setback versus Virginia Tech.

It was his second 100-yard receiving game of the season. Washington snatched 78 catches for 784 yards and a touchdown in 2013, and followed that up by posting 66 receptions for 761 yards and four scores this season. The diminutive Washington should put up monster numbers in 2015 as one of Gunner Kiel's favorite targets.

Cincinnati redshirt sophomore QB Gunner Kiel suffered an apparent head injury and will miss the remainder of the game against Virginia Tech.

Prior to leaving, Kiel completed 14 of 26 attempts for 244 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, barely missing a few other gains. Kiel took a sack and his head hit the turf hard, and he will almost certainly not return. Cincy is already without Munchie Legaux, so senior Michael Colosimo will finish this game. Kiel has been injured on multiple occasions this season.

Cincinnati redshirt sophomore QB Gunner Kiel completed 15 of 24 attempts for 190 yards and two touchdowns before leaving early in the third quarter in the school's 38-31 win over Houston.

Some reports have stated Kiel was dealing with cramps and he was replaced by Munchie Legaux for the remainder of the contest. Kiel did return to the sideline during the game. This is not the first time this season Kiel has deal with injuries, as he had a nagging rib issue for multiple games.

Low opinions by NFL scouts of Cincinnati redshirt senior OT Eric Lefeld have been justified, writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Lefeld was highly rated by many entering the season except league scouts, who were proven correct," Pauline wrote. "He’s a solid college tackle but lacks the balance, athleticism and necessary skills to be anything other than a small area blocker at the next level." The 6-foot-5, 309-pounder earned First Team All-AAC honors as the Bearcats' starting left tackle last season, but he doesn't have enough quickness to compensate for his lack of size.

Cincinnati redshirt sophomore QB Gunner Kiel completed 29-of-44 passes for 436 yards and four touchdowns on Thursday.

The four touchdowns are great, though his three interceptions off-set those a bit. Kiel had been dealing on-and-off with a rib injury of late, but he looked healthy against East Carolina. His 436 yards passing were a season-high. He showed a nice touch on several deep balls. If he can cut down on the mental mistakes, he has all the physical tools to play the position. The redshirt sophomore has thrown for 2,485 yards this season and has a 24/10 TD/INT ratio.

Cincinnati HC Tommy Tuberville said the team will go with senior QB Munchie Legaux as the school's starter "for a while."

Tuberville said the team needs consistency at the QB position, referring to the same passer working the No. 1s during practice. The head coach added Gunner Kiel will not receive those reps until he is 100 percent healthy. Legaux has a good amount of starting experience, and entered Friday's game in relief to throw three touchdowns.

Cincinnati redshirt sophomore QB Gunner Kiel started Friday's game against Tulane, but promptly left the game following a first play interception after re-injuring his ribs.

Kiel has really struggled to return from the rib issue. He attempted to come back last week against USF, but was forced out at halftime. It did not even take a full series in this one, as Kiel was intercepted on a deep pass and could not continue. Munchie Legaux, who has starting experience, stepped in and played very well. Cincinnati ultimately won the game 38-14.

NFL scouts have been talking about Cincinnati DE/OLB Terrell Hartsfield "for awhile now," reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Hartsfield could well be listed as a sleeper but scouts have been talking about him for a while now," Pauline wrote. "The junior college transfer made few scouting lists entering the season after 23 tackles and 1.5 sacks a year ago. Seven games into the 2014 campaign he’s already registered 6 sacks with 7 tackles for loss. An athletic prospect with natural pass rushing skills, Hartsfield could well sneak into the late rounds if he performs well in pre-draft workouts." The 6-foot-3, 246-pounder is a former four-star recruit who runs a forty in the 4.8-second range.

Cincinnati redshirt sophomore QB Gunner Kiel is considered day-to-day with a rib injury.

There is currently no word on whether Kiel will play this week against Tulane. The injury occurred late in the first half against USF and Kiel was replaced by backup Munchi Legaux for the remainder of the contest. It could be a re-aggravation of an October 4 injury.
Mon, Oct 27, 2014 12:17:00 PM

Cincinnati redshirt sophomore QB Gunner Kiel completed 13 of 22 attempts for 196 yards and a touchdown versus USF before exiting at halftime with a rib injury.

Kiel has been dealing with a rib injury since the first week of October, and it flared up again in this contest. Kiel added another touchdown on the ground, but his most impressive moments were keeping his eyes up and climbing the pocket. He is just in his first season as a starter, so we do not expect Kiel to contemplate jumping to the NFL. He has made more puzzling decisions before, however.

Cincinnati has placed senior QB Jarred Evans (assault charge) on indefinite suspension.

Evans was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge early Sunday morning for allegedly punching a man, causing a concussion and requiring stitches. "It’s just hard to get through their heads that you are different than everybody else," HC Tommy Tuberville said. "You can’t even think about making a mistake or even being close to a mistake. Even if it’s not your fault, you’re still implicated. So, that’s how we handle it and I hope our players on the team see that and understand that and we’ll go from there." Evans, a backup, may have played his last snap as a Bearcat, though Tuberville stressed that there’s a "[g]ood chance he’s not guilty."
