Broome, a 6-foot, 160-pound guard, is coming off a prolific sophomore season with the Pioneers where he averaged 23.1 points per game, en route to being named the NEC Player of the Year. His scoring outburst as a second-year player wasn't completely unexpected after Broome averaged 14.5 points per game as a freshman, shooting 44.5% from the field in both seasons.
Broome surpassed 30 points in fives games this season, including 39 points against Fairleigh Dickinson and 38 points against LIU Brooklyn. The East Hartford, CT native also scored 32 points against Yale in a 99-77 loss this past November.
Creighton, NC State and Seton Hall joined Cincinnati in pursuit of Broome before the list narrowed down to just Cincinnati and Creighton at the end of March, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman. Broome visited Cincinnati on April 7.
Broome clearly offers an intriguing scoring touch from the guard role moving forward. He will not be eligible to play for the Bearcats until the 2017-18 season, but is clearly a welcome addition to the Cincinnati basketball program.
