Cincinnati uses Chipotle burrito to recruit wide receiver

If the key to a football player’s heart is through his stomach, the University of Cincinnati might be on to something.

The school is going to some creative lengths to get Fort Wayne prospect Ben Skowronek to be a Bearcat. That includes photoshopping the wide receiver into a Chipotle graphic, with Skowronek catching a burrito.

CollegeSpun found a tweet in which fellow high school recruit Austin Mack posted the graphic of the Homestead High School WR going long for a semi-wrapped burrito. (Hopefully that barbacoa doesn’t fall out on the way into Skowronek’s gloved hands.)

The Indiana native “announced” via Twitter that he will be making his final decision on school in about a month, so we will have to wait until then to find out if the graphic paid dividends.

There is no word as to if the long list of other schools who have made offers to Skowronek have tried to lure him with Taco Bell’s gourmet cousin, or anything other food for that matter.
