Bearcats Add Juco Scorer

On Wednesday night, Cincinnati added to its recruiting class. This time, the Bearcats plucked one of the best junior college prospects and added him to their 2002 recruiting haul.

Bobbitt Enlists With Cincy

Add Tony Bobbitt to a list that includes Eric Hicks, Armein Kirkland and Chadd Moore. On Wednesday night, Bob Huggins flew to Twin Falls, Idaho, to watch College of Southern Idaho shooting guard Tony Bobbitt. He didn't leave empty handed.

Bobbitt committed to Huggins, making the four inches of snow the area received seem like a small obstacle on the return trip to Cincinnati.

"That's what I wanted to do," Bobbitt said of his commitment. "The basketball level of competition is all good." Bobbitt also looked at Florida State, Iowa State and Minnesota. He signed with the Seminoles two years ago and is a Tallahassee-area native.

He's a big-time pickup for the Bearcats. "Tony Bobbitt is the best shooter in junior college basketball," CSI assistant Jay Cyriac said. "He's a legitimate NBA prospect because of his size and ability to play both guard positions."

As a high schooler, Bobbitt was terrific. He has a quick trigger, deep range on his jumper and an absolute scorer's mentality. This is a significant addition for Huggins and his staff.
