Cincinnati got a commitment from a coveted shooting guard and local player on Sunday when Rayvon Griffith selected the Bearcats during a live ceremony at CBS Sports HQ. Griffith is a four-star prospect from the class of 2023 who chose Cincinnati over Alabama, Kansas, Ohio State and UCLA.

Griffith helped lead Taft High School in Cincinnati to a state title as a junior last season, averaging 18 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Keeping a player of Griffith’s caliber at home marks a major recruiting victory for second-year Bearcats coach Wes Miller, who led the team to a record of 15-15 in its first season.

“I chose Cincinnati because it’s home and I want to play for coach Wes Miller,” Griffith told 247Sports. “He’s a great coach and I feel like he recruited me the best, so I feel like that’s going to be a great opportunity for me.”

With 6-7 and 180 pounds, Griffith could develop into a versatile wing, depending on how his frame fills out. So far, he ranks as No. 10 shooter in the recruit class. 247Sports National Basketball Director Eric Bossi offered the following rating of Griffith after watching Griffith play with the Midwest Basketball Club in the adidas 3SSB action in April:

“He’s a big winger who can play on the two or as a little striker and he can get hot from deep busy,” Bossi wrote. “His athletics are budding, he plays fast, and his game seems to be heading in a very positive direction.”
