The 5-foot-11, 195-pound back told Rivals.com early this week that he plans on visiting Cincinnati very soon. This comes just after a trip to another Big East school.

"I went to Rutgers, I think it was last week," Poteat recalled. "We had a good time. We were playing Madden and laughing. It was nice. I talked to the coaches -- coach (Greg) Schiano, the offensive coordinator and the running backs coach. It was a good visit. I feel real comfortable with them.
