CLIFTON, OH (FOX19) -

The University of Cincinnati Bearcats football team officially welcomed 28 new members to the program on Wednesday.

Head Coach Tommy Tuberville said in his 'National Signing Day' press conference this batch of recruits is the strongest he's had since stepping on Clifton.

"We worked hard, especially our coaches and Greg Bruner, our recruiting coordinator, and I think we got our share," said Tuberville.

Among AAC rivals, UC has the highest-rated class in the conference per scout.com, 247sports.com, rivals.com, and espn.com.

Nationally, the Bearcats rank in the 50's and 60's among recruiting classes.

The 'Cats did most of the work in their home-state of Ohio and the sunshine state. Of the 28 recruits, six are from Ohio and Florida respectively.

UC signed two locals on Wednesday. Consensus three-star tight end Doug Bates (Moeller) and three-star wide receiver Braxton Neal (Lakota West).

The gem of the class may be quarterback Ross Trail. Trail, 21st rated pro-style quarterback according 247sports.com, is a four-start recruit by espn.com.

The Bearcats are scheduled to begin spring practice on Feb. 27. UC will hold their spring game on April 4th.
