Tilton’s Kirciman D1 Bound
Tilton unsigned senior Cem Kirciman announced a late commitment to Wisconsin Green Bay on Saturday night, earning a full athletic scholarship from the D1 level.
Kirciman is the first player to commit to new head coach Will Ryan, the son of longtime Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan.
Kirciman announced his decision via social media.
A native of Turkey who played for the u16 national team during the 2017 FIBA championships, Kirciman has spent the last two years in the New England prep ranks but missed some time with injury this past season.
The 6-foot-7 forward is an outstanding ball-handler and passer for his size. He can take the ball off the glass to start the break or provide a frontcourt facilitator off the elbows. He's also extremely crafty inside the lane with his footwork and finishing maneuvers.
I'm so excited to announce my commitment to The University of Wisconsin Green Bay. First of all, I want to thank Tamer Turkman for his huge help because I wouldn't get this offer without him. I feel so lucky that I worked with Coach Marcus O’Neil at Tilton School who stood by me the whole time. I want to thank Coach Will Ryan for giving me this great opportunity. I also want to thank my family for their amazing support as well as my friends and teammates.I am very proud and pleased to start this new journey. Go Phoenix!!! Akademik ve spor hayatımı University of Wisconsin Green Bay’de full burs ile devam edeceğimi açıklayacağım için çok heyecanlıyım. Ülkemi NCAA Division 1 de Horizon Ligde temsil edebilmem bana gurur getiricek. Öncelikle Tamer Türkman’a yaptığı büyük yardımlar için çok minnettarım çünkü onsuz bu teklifi alamazdım. Green Bay baş koçu Will Ryan ile çalışacağım için çok şanslıyım. Ayrıca anneme, babama ve ablama inanılmayacak destekleri için ve tüm dostlarıma teşekkür ederim. Go Phoenix!!!
