Cashmere Wright Profile
The Clemson Tigers have some scoring help coming in 2008.
Cashmere Wright, a 6-1, 165 pound point guard prospect announced to fans across the Palmetto state last week that he plans to be a Clemson Tiger.
"I decided to go to Clemson because of the atmosphere," Wright said. "I just felt more at home at Clemson. I liked what they do for their players after they leave. They emphasize academics over athletics."
Wright is having an outstanding junior season so far.
"The season is going good," he said. "I am averaging 33 points, 7.6 assists, three rebounds and four steals.
"Clemson is doing good too. They started off with a record then started slacking off a little. They lost their focus after they won all those games."
What will Cashmere bring to the hardwood in Littlejohn Coliseum in the coming years?
"For me, I know how to win ballgames," he said. "I can score when it is needed. I can give the ball to other players. I can do what is needed to help the team win."
When asked how firm he is with his commitment, Wright responded, "I am 100 percent. It came down to Clemson, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Kansas State and Wake Forest, but I am firm to Clemson."
One thing stuck out about the Tigers play for the Palmetto standout.
"I guess I can say I like their playing style," he said. "I like their style. I play better in the up tempo game."
Coach Purnell was pleased to hear about Wright's commitment.
"He was very happy. I committed at noon on Thursday. He called me around 1. He and coach Smith were real excited.
"I am just glad the decision is behind me."
