Yancy Gates To Commit To Cincinnati

Mick Cronin sent a major message today as Bearcat Insider received word from Tony Dees, the stepfather of Yancy Gates, that his very talented son will be attending the University of Cincinnati to play basketball.

Amid rumors for the last few weeks that Yancy Gates, maybe the most talented big man to play in Cincinnati since LaSalle Thompson, was close to making his college decision, Bearcat Insider received confirmation today that Yancy will play his college basketball at UC and for Mick Cronin and his staff. Tony Dees had this to say about the decision that will be officially released tomorrow. "Coach Cronin and Stubblefield were a big part of his coming. I've gotten to know them and trust them during the recruiting process. Also getting a chance to play in the Big East conference was part of it , and UC has a good tradition. That's basically it."

Yancy chose the Bearcats over Georgetown, Indiana and Florida.
