Ohio All-Stars 94 Kentucky All-Stars 92 - Final - Jarron Cumberland finished with 15 points and took home MVP honors for Ohio.— Rick Broering (@RickBroering) April 10, 2016
Cumberland, a four-star recruit from Wilmington, Ohio (Wilmington High School), scored a team-high 15 points in the win for the Ohio All-Stars. It was the second-highest total in the game behind only Northern Kentucky commit Carson Williams, who scored 18.
Mick Cronin openly refers to Cumberland as "the best player in Ohio" and it's hard to argue with that sentiment. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound shooting guard has a composite rating of 0.9772 and is considered the No. 4 player in Ohio according to 247Sports. 247Sports has him graded out as the No. 39 player nationally in the 2016 class and he is a ESPN Top 100 player, ranking 53rd in their national rankings.
Cumberland has developed quite the reputation for his scoring prowess and will be a welcome addition to the Cincinnati basketball program, just in time for the 2016-17 season.
