Bearcats add another piece

Deshaun Morman is the latest commitment headed to the University of Cincinnati

Mick Cronin and the Cincinnati Bearcats knew that they needed to add some depth to their backcourt in the 2013 class. On the first day of the signing period they inked two quality players in Kevin Johnson and Troy Caupain. Now they have added a strong and athletic wing into the equation.

"Deshaun Morman has committed to Cincinnati," said Morman's high school coach Kenny Gillion.

According to Gillion it was the work the staff put in recruiting him and their track record that led Morman to picking the Bearcats.

"Coach Antwon Jackson recruited him hard and he felt they would develop him," said Gillion. "Also there is a good opportunity for him for early playing time."

Morman is a very athletic 6-foot-3 wing who can play all over the basketball floor. After doing three years in Virginia, he is now in Florida to finish out his high school career under the tutelage of Gillion.

Along with Cincinnati, Morman also had an offer from Rutgers where he officially visited during the month of October.

A three-star prospect, Morman impresses with his ability to really defend combined with toughness and athleticism that he brings on the offensive end. Morman has the versatility to play multiple positions, and will continue to bring a sense of toughness that Cronin loves his teams to have.

This is the fourth commitment for the Bearcats in this class. Along with Morman, Johnson, and Caupain, big man Jamaree Strickland has also inked with the Bearcats.
