Ex-Oakland guard Jaevin Cumberland spurns Michigan, transfers to Cincinnati

Detroit News

Michigan has missed the mark on another target.

According to multiple reports on Monday, Oakland grad transfer Jaevin Cumberland has signed with Cincinnati and use will his final season of eligibility with the Bearcats.

Cumberland, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound sharp-shooting guard, acknowledged the news by posting a GIF of a dancing Bearcat mascot on his Twitter, which is a private account.

Cumberland took an official visit to Michigan last month and left Ann Arbor with a scholarship offer, but all that took place before former coach John Beilein left for the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers.

Cumberland told The Detroit News shortly after his visit he was looking to “show my talents on a bigger stage” and there was an “opportunity” for him with the Wolverines, who lost their top three perimeter players and scorers to the NBA Draft — Charles Matthews, Jordan Poole and Ignas Brazdeikis.
