San Diego St. Augustine 2018 forward Taeshon Cherry is one of the best players in the west for his class and his versatility is a big reason why.
“I think I can play any position on the floor,” Cherry said .”Whatever they put me at, I am going to go my hardest and learn what I can. I want to try to do everything I can in college.”
Cherry’s recruitment reflects the fact that he is one of the better forwards in the country.
“I have offers from most of the Pac-12 and I am hearing a lot from the SEC and Big 12,” Cherry said.
“Kansas offered recently. I wasn’t surprised, but I was really happy because I had been talking to them for a while and I like the way they run their program, so it was a huge offer for my family and I.”
Arizona offered Cherry in June, but the two parties had already started to build a relationship.
“I have a great relationship with Coach Miller,” Cherry said. “We have been talking for two years and he and Coach Pasternack are recruiting me hard. It’s great having conversations with them.”
The four-star forward is in the process of planning visits and has one specific date in mind for Arizona.
“Texas A&M, Florida State, Arizona, and UCLA are schools I know I want to visit,” he said. “I will be at the Red and Blue game at Arizona.
“I want a school where I have a good relationship with the coaching staff. When I go on visits I want to feel everything out and make sure I am comfortable.”
As far as a decision goes, Cherry is in no rush.
“My family and I have talked about committing right before my senior year, so we are probably going to stick to that,” he said.
“We’re always talking about recruiting, so if the time comes before that, that’s okay too.”
