It looks like Cincinnati is in the hunt for transfer guard, Jon Octeus.  Octeus stands 6’4″ tall, and averaged 13.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game at Colorado State last year.  He will likely graduate this summer, which frees him up to play immediately this season under NCAA guidelines. 

As it pertains to his transfer, Octeus stated: “This was not an easy decision, but upon graduating, I have decided it is in my best interest to explore the opportunity to complete my last year of eligibility at another institution. I appreciate coach (Larry) Eustachy’s understanding throughout this process. Thank you to everyone that has supported me through this chapter of my life.”

Octeus would add an immediate spark to the Bearcats lineup that could use the scoring help in light of Sean Kilpatrick’s graduation.  Let’s hope Octeus does the right thing and becomes #BearcatBound.
