CINCINNATI — The UC football staff got some good news over the weekend when four-star 2024 defensive tackle Omar White out of Lee County (Georgia) placed the school in his top-10 options.

UC is grouped with Alabama, Michigan State, Florida State, Oregon, Oklahoma, Jackson State, Texas A&M, Georgia, and Clemson. According to On3, White is the 98th-ranked player nationally and the 10th-ranked defensive lineman.

White has earned the distinction as arguably a top-100 prospect in the class with his dominant ability in the middle of the trenches. At 6-foot-4, 310 pounds, White is already a man amongst boys as a nose guard. He wins a lot of matchups with bull rushes using that harrowing frame, but he also mixes in a nice swim move.

He can rush the passer head up on any interior lineman and also flashed some snaps at five and three-tech as a sophomore. He would be the next mauler in line to take over the nose guard spot in Luke Fickell's 3-3-5 hybrid defense. White could easily follow in the line of names like Curtis Brooks, and Jowon Briggs. Check out his highlights here.

He will be the highest-rated UC recruit in the 247Sports era if he chooses Cincinnati out of these major programs.
