Bearcats add post-grad C Jamaree Strickland

Cincinnati head coach Mick Cronin nabbed a verbal commitment from center Jamaree Strickland (Oakland, Calif./Queen City Prep) on Tuesday, according to a source.

Strickland is spending a post-graduate year at Queen City Prep in Charlotte, N.C. after recovering from a torn ACL he suffered as a junior. He joins PG Kevin Johnson (Cincinnati/Summit Country Day) and SG Troy Caupain (Midlothian, Va./Cosby) in the Bearcats' 2013 class.
