Roundballers Hope to Visit UC Soon

Cashmere Wright has verbally committed to play his college basketball at the University of Cincinnati, but he hasn't yet made an official visit. When the Georgia point guard does come to UC, he'll likely be bringing a friend with him.

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.
