Former Kentucky target Blue Smith transfers to Cincinnati

After leaving the Ohio State football team this spring, former four-star receiver and major Kentucky target L’Christian “Blue” Smith has announced he will be transferring to Cincinnati.

Smith, a 6-foot-6 prospect from Dayton, OH, was with Ohio State for just one season.

Here was the announcement:

As a recruit, Smith was considered a consensus four-star prospect and was rated as high as No. 39 overall in the class of 2018. Out of high school, the elite wideout prospect committed to Ohio State over Kentucky, Alabama, Michigan, Michigan State, and Penn State, among others, though most recruiting analysts felt his decision came down to the Buckeyes and the Wildcats.

After putting his name in the transfer portal back on March 22, it was eventually reported that Smith was deciding between Cincinnati and Kentucky to finish out his college career. While the Wildcats were deemed the runner-up during his original recruitment and many assumed they might be the favorite this time around, the Bearcats (for whatever reason) jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.

That’s alright, though. Vince Marrow got us plenty excited for the star transfer we did get during his appearance on KSR this morning.

Vince Marrow compares Xavier Peters to Josh Allen, says there is a “very strong possibility” he is eligible this season

    I don’t follow the Bearcats so the question I have is what type of offense do they run? Are they really a pass heavy team? If not, then why would he pick Cincy of the Cats and a chance to play in the SEC? Maybe it was personal connections or maybe the Cats backed off on him. Who knows… best of luck young man!

    I know… here comes the posters saying Stoops and Gran are all ‘ground and pound’ and that is why he chose Cincy. I still think the MAIN issue over the last three years is Gran really hasn’t had a healthy QB that could effectively run the passing game. I say MAIN issue because I do believe Stoops likes that type of game but I believe he would be open to more passing if we had a QB that can make it work.

      He has many connections in Cincy. Close friends and Luke Fickell is there as coach. Plus that leauge isn’t too bad.

    Another one bites the dust. At least Dr. Richard Strauss was not there.

    Doesnt seem like the Cats were really after him like Cincy was. There has to be a reason, so I’m not upset he’s chosen someone else.
