Ever since he shocked the college football world by abruptly leaving Texas Tech to accept the head coaching position at Cincinnati, stories have surfaced about Tommy Tuberville that paint him as cold and heartless. That theme continued earlier this week when two Cincinnati recruits claimed Tuberville pulled their scholarship offers without informing them.
Demetrius Monday, a three-star cornerback who verbally committed to the Bearcats last summer, said he has begun exploring other options after not hearing from Tuberville for a month. Monday’s father, Bryant, said he contacted the university this week to find out what was going on and was told to “look other places.”
“I think it’s messed up,” Bryant Monday told the Atlanta Journal Constitution on Thursday. “You wait until a few weeks before signing day to say something? They could have told us a month ago. Now we’re left with less than a month until signing day to figure something out. He had other scholarship offers but he hasn’t talked to those coaches in six months since he committed to Cincinnati on July 25. It’s really disappointing.”
