Bearcats add Brooks to the fold

Cincinnati got a solid three-star commitment on Tuesday from Nysier Brooks.

The Cincinnati Bearcats have built their reputation and success on defense, toughness, and rebounding under Head Coach Mick Cronin. On Tuesday they got another piece to the puzzle who fits that when Nysier Brooks picked the school.

“I am now committed to the University of Cincinnati,” said Brooks.

At 6-foot-9 and 220 pounds, Brooks is one of the key pieces down low for We R 1. He has solid hands, moves well, and brings toughness, and rebounding to the equation which Cincinnati loves.

Along with the Bearcats, Brooks had significant interest from Seton Hall, Creighton, Nebraska, Georgetown, South Carolina, and St. John’s.

This commitment gives the Bearcats added depth on the low block. Brooks will step in for senior Octavius Ellis, and could compete for a starting job along with current frontcourt player Quadri Moore.

Look for Cincinnati to try and follow this up with several players on the perimeter to round out their class.
