Cincinnati has landed a commitment from Sacred Heart transfer Cane Broome.

Broome announced the news on his twitter page on Monday morning.

“I have officially committed to spend my next three years at the University of Cincinnati,” Broome wrote.

Broome was the Northeast Conference Player of the Year, averaging 23.1 points for the Pioneers as a sophomore, which ranked him eighth nationally in scoring. When he becomes eligible, Broome will provide the Bearcats with some much-needed back court scoring pop.

The Connecticut native will have to sit out the 2016-17 season, but he’ll have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
