One of the West Coast’s most productive players in 2018 is San Diego St. Augustine’s Taeshon Cherry.
The hybrid forward has good size at 6-foot-8 and 205 pounds and can score with his jumper and around the basket, while he’s a plus rebounder, passes well and competes on defense.
Cherry, who is just coming back from a broken hand, is pleased with how his junior season has started.
“It’s going well,” Cherry said. “The ball is in my hands more this year and I’m trying to be a leader. My composure is much better this year. The ultimate goal is a state championship.”
“The Texas A&M visit was great,” Cherry said. “They showed a lot of hospitality. I really liked coaches Amir (Abdur-Rahim) and (Billy) Kennedy. The atmosphere of the football game was a lot of fun. They’ve shown a lot of love.
“At Arizona, coaches (Sean) Miller and (Joe) Pasternack have shown a lot of love. I went to the locker room and I could tell the energy they have there.”
He doesn’t plan on having a drawn out recruiting process.
“I’m just keeping my options open right now,” he said. “I think I’ll make a decision next year, maybe mid-summer. I’m not that far away.”
