Bradley transfer Connor Hickman commits to Cincinnati

Wes Miller and his staff picked up their first commitment out of the transfer portal on Monday night in Bradley transfer Connor Hickman.



Hickman visited Indiana yesterday, but after visiting Cincinnati this afternoon, the Bloomington, IN native ultimately chose the Bearcats.

One of the primary reasons for Cincinnati pursuing Hickman was the prior relationship with Cincinnati assistant Drew Adams, who recruited Hickman out of high school and was an assistant at Bradley during Hickman's freshman season.

Adams' father, Mark, also coached Hickman during his time with Indiana Elite on the AAU circuit. 

At 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, Hickman brings shooting and toughness to a Bearcats roster that returns five of their top seven players from the 2023/24 season. Additionally, he also provides ball handling and another option at the point guard position. 

Hickman finished the season averaging 14.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists, making 46.7 percent of his field goal attempts and 40.2 percent from deep. His 74 made three's would have been second most this past season, second to Simas Lukosius' 90 made three's. 

Cincinnati now has two remaining scholarships to fill following departures by Viktor Lakhin, Jamille Reynolds, and Sage Tolentino.
