Other notable 2024 targets for the Bearcats include 4-star forward Darrion Sutton, 3-star forward Jayce Nathaniel, 3-star forward Klairus Amir and more.

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.
Miller reacted to the signings of both commits and officially introduced Betsey and McKinley in a social media post this month per Cincinnati Athletics.
With a chance to secure an NCAA Tournament berth for the first time since 2019, Cincinnati is looking to find major success in Miller’s third year at the helm.
247 Sports Director of Scouting Adam Finkelstein described Betsey as “a naturally talented prospect who has made notable strides in recent years.”
