It can be hard for some college football programs to stand out for recruits around the country, but the Cincinnati Bearcats might have stumbled upon a very unique recruiting pitch for some teenagers: burritos.
Yes, you read that right.
Cincinnati sent Fort Wayne, Ind., wide receiver Ben Skowronek a photoshopped image of the three-star recruit leaping in the air to catch a burrito (an amazing thing in its own right) while noting how close a local Chipotle was to the Bearcats' stadium. A high school teammate of Skowronek posted the photo on Twitter and naturally the recruiting pitch became a bit more public than some in the Bearcats' program likely wanted.
As far as unique things to sell, Cincinnati has certainly come up with a new one on the recruiting trail, but Skowronek has yet to commit to a school, according to various recruiting services.
The next time Bearcats coaches want to pitch the stadium's proximity to a popular restaurant, perhaps they should note the strategy is probably best reserved for courting offensive linemen.
