Arguably Mick Cronin's best recruiting class was finalized Wednesday when Jermaine Lawrence signed and faxed his National Letter of Intent to the UC basketball offices. UC loses three vital components in Cashmere Wright, JaQuon Parker, and Cheikh Mbodj so playing time is up for grabs. How much time these freshmen garner remains to be seen. But one thing that's for sure is they are certainly capable of contributing right away. The nice thing is that they aren't going to be relied upon immediately. There are plenty of players with the potential to fill the voids left by the three seniors.
So, Bearcat Nation, please welcome Troy Caupain, Kevin Johnson, Jamaree Strickland, Deshaun Morman, and Jermaine Lawrence to the family.
