Connecticut native and 2024 4-star power forward prospect Tyler Betsey announced his commitment to join the Bearcats program just over a month ago!

During his time at St. Thomas More High School, Betsey averaged 21 points and five rebounds en route to earning All-Conference honors last year.

Several notable schools were hoping to land Betsey before he committed to Cincinnati in recent weeks including Alabama, Duke, Connecticut and Indiana.

The recent commitment is a huge moment for the Bearcats as Betsey and 2024 4-star center Tyler McKinley will create a dynamic duo in the future.
