RB Jerrion Ealy versus Athlete Diwun Black –
Both players are unanimous four-stars by the biggest three recruiting services (Rivals, ESPN, 247 Sports). Diwun Black has proven to be the lockdown defender for the Bearcats thus far. His dominance on the field has landed him scholarship offers from Ole Miss, Tennessee, and several others. Ealy has also proven to be dominant all year already having scored 10 plus touchdowns on the season.
