Cincinnati using Chipotle to entice recruits
When it comes to recruiting, universities will do whatever they can to find an edge and land the big recruit.
In perhaps the most ingenious recruiting move yet, the Cincinnati Bearcats football team is attempting to land recruits with a unique selling point…
Yup, that’s right, the Bearcats are touting Nippert Stadium’s proximity to Chipotle as a new recruiting pitch.
Wide receiver Austin Mack out of Fort Wayne tweeted a picture of fellow wide receiver Ben Skowronek’s latest recruiting letter from UC.

The picture shows Skowronek leaping into the air and snagging a burrito, with Chipotle in the background and the words ‘Less than 2 blocks from Nippert!’ accompanying the photo.
Get Chipotle on the meal plan, and Cincinnati might have the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation.
