'Late-Bloomer' Becker Commits To Morehead State

MORROW - A little size has taken Cole Becker a long way. In fact, all the way to Morehead State.

The Little Miami High School incoming senior - who has grown five inches and put on 15 pounds since October - has made a commitment to the Division I school in Kentucky that competes in the Ohio Valley Conference.

“They saw at Thomas More in a Cincinnati Flames tournament,” noted Becker. “I hit the ball well and they called that night. I spoke with coach (Mike) McGuire and scheduled a visit. They ended up giving me an offer.

“I really loved the coaches and the energy they brought to practice,” Becker continued. “The campus was beautiful. I just love the opportunities provided.”

The Top Prospect Games helped ignite the Becker’s recruitment.

“That helped a lot,” Becker related. “I had a couple of texts, but not a lot of big D-I schools, more smaller D-I schools along with Lake Erie, Denison and Tiffin.”

It was a good learning experience as well for the 98th-ranked player in Ohio’s 2019 class.

“I felt like the kids there were as good as me,” Becker said of the TPGs. “That pushes me to work to be a better player to try and pass those kids up.”

Getting bigger physically has benefitted in that regard.
