Bearcats get on the board in 2012

Cincinnati head coach Mick Cronin landed his first recruit from the incoming 2012 class on Monday with a verbal pledge from junior college forward Titus Rubles (Dallas/Blinn College). The news was reported by www.cincinnati.com.

"When I came on my visit, I just loved the city," he told the site. "I'm from Dallas. Cincinnati is a place where I felt like it's not too small and it's not too big. It reminded me of Dallas a lot. And the fans were crazy at the Notre Dame (on his visit)."

Rubles averaged 16.0 points and 10.0 rebounds as a sophomore this season at Blinn. He will have two years of eligibility remaining at Cincinnati.
