Cincinnati Flips Three-Star OT Aiden Pastoriza from Central Michigan

Scott Satterfield and the Cincinnati Bearcats added a new name to the class of 2024 with the commitment of three-star OT Aiden Pastoriza.

Pastoriza flipped his commitment from Central Michigan to Cincinnati after receiving offers from seven different teams including Northwestern, Air Force, Eastern Michigan, and more.


Pastoriza is listed as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports index and currently checks in as the nation’s 1452nd-ranked prospect. He is also listed as the 120th-ranked offensive tackle in his class as well as the 28th overall player in the state of Michigan.

The Bearcats have quietly impressed in the class of 2024 with a whopping 22 total commitments. Pastoriza joins a class of 20 different three-star athletes including QB Samaj Jones, RB Jason Patternson, TE Gavin Grover, and the lone four-star in the class, CB Daniel James.

The 6-foot-7, 250-pound tackle is the largest player in his class and adds some much-needed size to Cincinnati’s future offensive line room.

Pastoriza and the rest of the class of 2024 will have the opportunity to watch their future team take the field in Week 9 on the road in Stillwater against Mike Gundy and the Oklahoma State Cowboys on October 28th at 7:00 PM CT.
