He originally committed to UK out of Highlands, following the footsteps of former teammate Jared Lorenzen.  However, when Hal Mumme was dismissed, the University of Cincinnati jumped in and coaxed over the river and up the hill.  Guidugli went on to a UC Hall of Fame career and has his No. 7 posted at Nippert Stadium with other Bearcat legends.

He his UC's all-time leader in passing yards (11,453), completions (880), touchdown passes (78) and holds the single-season passing yard title (3,543). He was team MVP twice, led UC to three bowl games and was MVP of the 2004 Fort Worth Bowl.  Guidugli is currently UC's running backs coach under head coach Luke Fickell.


Other members of the new class will include: Dicky Beal, Holmes High School (class of 1980); Rob Florian, Elder High School (2004); David Mosko, St. Xavier High School (2007); Emily Thompson, Taylor High School (2006); coach Mike Yeagle, Beechwood High School (1991-2005).
