The Cincinnati Bearcats went into Virginia to get their first commitment in the class 2015.

Safety Malik Clements gave his pledge to the Bearcats Monday evening.

The 6’2, 185-pounder attends George Washington High School in Danville, Virginia.

“I went there for a visit, and I liked their coaching staff,” Clements told Tim Adams of 24/7 Sports. “I was there in October for their homecoming. I was also impressed with the fans and how the players interacted with each other. It was like a brotherhood, and I like that.”

Clements also has high academic standards for himself and he likes what the Bearcats have to offer.

“That’s another reason I like Cincinnati,” Clements explained. “They offer medical fields.”

Clements wants to be a dentist.

Clements has not been ranked by 24/7 Sports as of this time.

He chose the Bearcats over the Central Florida Knights, Duke Blue Devils, Kent State Golden Flashes and North Carolina State Wolfpack, among other interest.
