Fairburn (GA) cornerback Demetrius Monday of Arlington Christian School became the second class of 2013 recruit from the state of Georgia to verbally commit to the Cincinnati Bearcats, reports Keith Niebuhr of Photo - Cincinnati Football Recruiting: Bearcats Sign Georgia CB

Coach Butch Jones offered Monday a scholarship last week, who was overjoyed. The 5'11", 180-pound defensive back was a huge fan of the UC campus from first glance after taking a visit in February.

Monday pulled the trigger, well, on Monday.

"Yesterday, it hit me," Monday told Niebuhr. "Then I prayed about it last night. I called coach Jones (to commit). He said I made his day. He was very happy. I just thought it was time. I thought I should go ahead and get it over with.

"I wanted that one bad," he continued. "That is my dream school. I was like, 'Okay, my hard work paid off.'"

Although he plays corner for his high school team, Monday's highlight tape suggests that he could potentially be utilized as a free safety for the Bearcats. His versatility and nose for the ball in open space would be a nice asset to the position's depth right away.

Monday, a 3-star prospect, was a sought after corner from the Atlanta area. He chose Cincinnati over Toledo and Mississippi State, while also holding offers from Akron, Ball State, Eastern Michigan and Ohio.
