PLAYER SUMMARY: The Cincinnati Bearcats have always prided themselves on being a tough team. Head Coach Mick Cronin landed a player in the 2016 class who has the talent and physical attributes to play right away.
Jarron Cumberland is a very strong and well-built shooting guard who, in our opinion, has one of the more complete offensive games in the entire class of 2016. After evaluating his game, we believe he resembles Sean Kilpatrick, who was a Bearcat a few years ago and is now with the Brooklyn Nets.They have the same well-built body type.
Cumberland has multiple ways of scoring. He is very good in the transition game. We were most impressed with his ability to score while attacking the basket.The 6’4″ SG is very aggressive as he uses his strength to over power the opposition. He shows range out to the 3-point line, although it will need to become more consistent.
While we were very impressed with Cumberland’s offensive repertoire, he isn’t in the upper echelon of players with elite athletic ability that we have evaluated. His passing and ball handling will need to improve through hard work. However, with the style that head coach Mick Cronin employs, he will surely welcome the toughness that Cumberland brings to the floor.
Jarron Cumberland’s ability to score the ball in a variety of ways should get him major playing time as a freshmen. We wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up starting at some point during his freshmen campaign. He will bring much needed scoring to a team that usually struggles putting the ball in the basket. With his physicality and aggressive demeanor, he is ready made for the rigors of college basketball and is the prototype of player that Cincinnati has recruited since the early Bob Huggins days. We look for Cumberland to have a really nice collegiate career.
