    Mike Dyer article on the commitment https://www.wcpo.com/sports/high-sch...-commits-to-uc
    "A hundred percent I wanted to play for (UC) coach (Wes) Miller," Griffith told WCPO. "He's a great guy. He brings a lot of energy. And I just want to be a hometown hero and represent my city."

    “The reason I picked Cincinnati is because it’s home,” Griffith said to On3. “I want to start my own trend and be a hometown hero. I want to put on for my city and play for Coach Wes Miller and the whole Cincinnati coaching staff.”

    Matt Norlander (CBS): Four-star SG/top-50 '23 prospect Rayvon Griffith just committed to Cincinnati on @CBSSportsHQ . The local product picked the Bearcats over Kansas, UCLA, Ohio State & Alabama. Big-time get for Wes Miller’s program. He’ll be in uniform when UC starts the ’23-24 season in the Big 12.

      Rayvon just tweeted this video out: https://twitter.com/GriffithRayvon/s...01633160491011

      This is really neat... probably what was going to be his announcement before he was asked to announce on CBS HQ. Worth a watch ^^^ ... come for the announcement, stay for the Wes Miller/Rayvon "griddy" dance.

        I hope Bearcat fans appreciate this young man more than they did/do Jaren Cumberland, Yancey Gates, and Jeremiah Davenport. The treatment of those young men (hometown heroes) has at times been embarrassing.

              I believe I read that Rayvon is slightly higher-rated than Jarron Cumberland (obviously Rayvon's ranking/rating could go up or down between now and final rankings). But that would mean (according to the above link from 247), since 2000, the only UC commits ranked higher than Rayvon = Lance Stephenson, Jermaine Lawrence, Yancy Gates, Devan Downey, Roy Bright, and Zach Harvey ... shoutout to Yancy for being the only one to finish/graduate from UC (though no disrespect to Lance for being one and done).

                  I wish Zach Harvey had a chance to graduate. It is still a sore spot when I think of MM and the Coach. Zach had a chance to really develop both as a person and a player.

                    I agree with you Corporateballa 100% with just a little caveat. I think in the cases of YG and JC the displeasure from the fans although directed at the players (albeit wrongfully so) was more of Cronin's lack of developing the talent once he obtains it. I dont want this to hijack the present thread and its just my opinion but I was never impressed with how or the lack of development that
                    Mick Cronin and his staff obtained, especially the guards ( Wright and Caupin). So with that said Here's hoping that CWM and his staff developed these new recruits to them fullest of their abilities.

                        Anyone know about anything NIL-related?

                        A few times have stumbled upon this guy/company that seem to be building up some type of sports agency in town and he was at the announcement and posing for pics w Rayvon. https://twitter.com/kash_shaikh/stat...EhCfas6krVBFcA

                          I do not even want to know. The whole NIL thing makes me vomit.

                            Sharing, have not watched. But an extended interview with Griffith. I think this was the same kid who chatted with John Newman last summer, and maybe like Mason Madsen and/or another Bearcat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0rL...ture=emb_title
