12/27/2012 - Scouting the Cincinnati pass defense: Cincinnati's defense is at its best when it consistently pressures the quarterback. DE Walter Stewart, the Bearcats' leading pass rusher before his season-ending spine injury, was a big loss. But Dan Giordano, Nick Temple, and Greg Blair combined for 10 sacks and 16 hurries. Nickel back Adrian Witty is a preferred blitzer with three sacks on the season. Fifth-year senior Drew Frey is enjoying one of his best seasons at strong safety, with two interceptions and six pass breakups. - The Sports Xchange

11/12/2012 - WEEK 11 BIG EAST HONOR ROLL: Drew Frey, Sr., S, Cincinnati, Wilmington, Ohio...Had three tackles, two pass breakups and a 20-yard interception return in a 34-10 win at Temple. - BIG EAST football

09/06/2012 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: The emergence of a consistent pass rush helped the Bearcats defense be among the nation's most improved last season. But sacks leader Derek Wolfe is gone to the NFL, and despite consistent pressure on opposing QBs the Bearcats still allowed more than 260 yards passing per game in 2011. Ends Walter Stewart and Dan Giordano anchor the defensive front which will try to take the pressure off an improved secondary headed by senior strong safety Drew Frey and senior defensive back Cam Cheatham. - The Sports Xchange

06/25/2012 - Top-five Cincinnati prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 2. SS Drew Frey (6-3, 200)...The loss of the Bearcats' top two defensive tackles will sting but the team is hopeful that the experience and leadership Frey provides on the back end can help Cincinnati remain at the top of the Big East conference. Frey's collegiate career didn't start off as he'd hoped. He dislocated his shoulder during the first camp of his true freshman season and was forced to redshirt. A broken arm a year later in his first career start ended his 2008 season prematurely, as well. Because the injury was sustained so early in the season the NCAA granted Frey a rare sixth year of eligibility. He's put it to good use, emerging as a 36-game starter (entering the 2012 season) who rose to First Team all-conference a year ago with 73 tackles, eight passes broken up and two interceptions - including one he returned for a touchdown in the regular season finale against Connecticut that made the Bearcats co-Big East champs (along with West Virginia). Frey has the size and instincts scouts like and appears to be an NFL caliber athlete. Scouts love intelligent safeties and Frey certainly boasts the smarts. He was his high school class Valedictorian, earned a spot on the 2012 Academic All-Big East team and is majoring in Architectural Engineering Technology. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
