Liberty has picked up a commitment from former Cincinnati commit Bryson Spell, he announced on his social media accounts Wednesday night. The 6’9″ forward is from Virginia Beach, Virginia and attends Cape Henry Collegiate School. He will join the program this summer for the 2021-22 class.
Spell committed to Cincinnati earlier this spring before their head coach John Brannen was fired earlier this month and replaced by former UNC Greensboro head coach Wes Miller. He decommitted from Cincinnati at that point and reopened his recruitment.
He had offers from a number of schools including Elon, George Washington, Old Dominion, and Virginia Tech. The 6’9’’ power forward has a knack for shooting threes, shown by an above-average three-point shooter. Not only his shooting, but rather his versatility, is something scouts and coaches have noticed at his tournaments over the years.
“He’s very active on both ends,” Adam Ayalew of the scouting network Prep Hoops said on Twitter during a showcase. “He’s got good hands and is light on his feet. He’s shooting well as usual, but also communicating, rebounding, and setting solid screens.”
The newest Liberty commit averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds in his senior season, leading his high school team to an undefeated state championship campaign.
