UB gains transfer from Cincinnati

Romel Dismuke, a 5-foot-8, 180-pound cornerback from Cleveland, is transferring to the University at Buffalo from Cincinnati, sources told The Buffalo News.

Dismuke is believed to be the first player from a Bowl Championship Series school to transfer to UB. Dismuke is scheduled to arrive on campus today. He will be elibigle for the 2011 season. Dismuke redshirted last year, his true freshman season, at Cincinnati and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.

His transfer comes at a good time for the Bulls, who lose three senior corners in Domonic Cook, Josh Thomas and Sherrod Lott after the 2010 season. The staff was considering recruiting a junior college corner with the intent of bringing him in next January, but may re-think that option now that Dismuke is on the roster.

A product of Cleveland Benedictine High School, Dismuke was a three-sport athlete, competing in basketball, football, and track and field. He participated in the 2009 Big 33 Football Classic and was an all-Ohio selection at defensive back and team MVP as a senior before signing with Cincinnati.

Dismuke also considered Pitt, Illinois, Toledo and Eastern Michigan out of high school.
