Former five-star recruit Jermaine Lawrence will transfer from Cincinnati to Manhattan.

As first reported by the New York Post's Zach Braziller, Lawrence, a 6-foot-9 forward ranked 26th overall in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, opted to return home to New York City and play for coach Steve Masiello.

After visiting Manhattan's campus this week, he chose to play for the school over Hofstra and Iona. In a statement week, Lawrence explained that his father is ill, which drove his desire to play closer to home. He could apply for a hardship waiver that would allow him to play immediately for the Jaspers.

Lawrence logged 15 minutes per game last season for the Bearcats, averaging 2.8 points and 2.9 rebounds and missing eight games with a toe injury.

Manhattan went 25-8 last season, falling narrowly to Louisville in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
