“Blessed to say I have committed to the University of Cincinnati,” Cumberland announced. Cumberland went on to say, “I love where I’m from and it is an honor me to say that I will be staying home to continue my education and play for Mick Cronin and the University of Cincinnati Bearcats.” Along with being about 45 minutes from his hometown of Wilmington, the style of play employed by Cronin and his staff was a huge selling point for Cumberland. “UC was a great fit for me,” he exclaimed. “I like their toughness and I know Coach Cronin will push me to make me a better player. Staying home and representing our area means a lot to me.” This is the third commitment in the last 24 hours for Cincinnati. On Tuesday three-star post Nysier Brooks announced for the Bearcats, that was followed with a Wednesday morning commitment from transfer Kyle Washington, and now Cumberland is in the fold as well.
