CINCINNATI, Ohio — Jamual Warren, who earned junior college All-American honors at Globe Institute of Technology this past season, has signed a national letter-of-intent to continue his basketball and academic careers at the University of Cincinnati.
A 6-2 scoring guard from Springfield, Mass., Warren averaged 22.2 points and 5.9 assists in 2005-06 while leading Globe to a No. 14 ranking in the final junior college polls. Warren was named to the NJCAA All-Region XV first team and was a second team NJCAA Division I All-American. He was also selected to the Region XV all-tournament team after helping Globe reach the championship game.
Warren played at Colby Community College in Kansas in 2004-05 where he earned Jayhawk Conference Freshman of the Year honors.
"Jamual is a veteran performer and a solid young man who can give us toughness at the guard position," stated UC head coach Mick Cronin. "He is a scorer. He can make shots from the perimeter and he takes the ball to the basket with great strength. Obviously, we have a need for immediate help at the guard positions with our departures, and Jamual is very capable of providing that."
Warren is the third member of Cincinnati's signing class. The Bearcats previously securred the commitments of Marvin Gentry, a 6-3 guard who was the conference's player of the year at McLennan Community College, and John Williamson, a 6-6 forward who was a first team All-American selection at Cincinnati State.
