With school officially starting at the University of Cincinnati this Wednesday, the Bearcat
basketball staff can start to host official visits. Cashmere Wright, the three star scoring
point guard from Urban Christian Academy in Savannah, Georgia, told Bearcat
Insider on Monday night that he is not only ready to take his official visit;
but he's also ready to bring a friend.
"I'm planning to take my official visit some time soon, but I don't know
when it is yet. I'll have to talk
with Coach Cronin about it. I
talked with Teondre Williams yesterday, and he'll come when I come."
Wright said he had just spoken with Coach Cronin on Sunday, but no
official visit was planned at that time.
Wright would not rule out an official visit as early as this weekend, but
it would seem unlikely since he and Cronin did not discuss it yesterday. Cashmere confirmed that his verbal
commitment to Cincinnati was still solid.
Teondre Williams, a three star shooting guard from Meadowcreek High
School in Norcross, Georgia, echoed the comments of
Wright. "I'm waiting on him
(Wright). I'll go when he
goes." Williams listed the other
schools he planned to visit in addition to Cincinnati. "I'll probably visit four-Florida State, Oklahoma and Ole Miss." Williams said he didn't expect the visit
to Cincinnati to
be this weekend. Williams said he
hadn't spoken to Coach Cronin for a few weeks, and Bearcat assistant coach Larry Davis had been handling his recruitment.
Teondre also said he presently had no official visits scheduled at any of
his schools of choice.
With the verbal commitment from Cashmere Wright to the Bearcats a month
ago, it seems to have meant the end of Cincinnati's recruitment of three star point guard Terrell Holloway, who transferred to Harmony
Community School in Cincinnati
from New York
three to four weeks ago. Holloway
said, "I really haven't heard from them (Cincinnati) in a while. I've been hearing from Oregon State,
Neveda, Tennessee and New Mexico."
Terrell said he's planning to take the ACT test soon and
hopes to then start taking official visits.
