Caupain commits to Cincinnati

Mick Cronin and Cincinnati scored their first verbal pledge for their 2013 class on Friday. Who did they add?

Cincinnati is on the board in 2013.

Troy Caupain, a 6-foot-3 guard out of Midlothian (Va.) Cosby, gave Mick Cronin and his staff a verbal pledge Friday afternoon.

"My decision was based on the relationship we built from day one," Caupain told

"Cincinnati never stopped and growing up in New York my dream was to always want to play in Madison Square Garden and I am trying to make a dream come true," he added.

During his junior season, Caupain averaged 26 points, 12.9 rebounds and just over eight assists per game.

Caupain, who runs with Team Loaded on the AAU circuit, also considered and took unofficial visits to Missouri, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Richmond.
