Cincinnati is on the board in 2012.
Thursday afternoon, power forward Devon Scott announced his commitment to the Bearcats via Twitter.
“As of now, I am verbally committed to the University of Cincinnati,” Scott wrote.
Scott is a 6-foot-8 prospect from Northland (Ohio), the same school that produced current Ohio State star Jared Sullinger. He has a strong body and works hard on the glass. Scott will be a nice replacement for current Cincinnati big man Yancy Gates in the fall of 2012.
He chose the Bearcats over mid-major offers from schools like Kent State, Akron, Cleveland State and interest from the likes of Dayton, West Virginia, Ohio State, UCLA and others.
