No. 22 Sr Taeshon Cherry DeCommits From USC

ESPN No. 22 ranked high school senior Taeshon Cherry has decommitted from USC due to the school’s involvement in the FBI’s bribery investigation scandal.

 

The 6-8 forward averaged 20.3 points and 10.4 rebounds for St. Augustine HS (San Diego, CA) last year when he was named the San Diego Section Player of the Year.

 

Cherry also had a strong summer, averaging 12.4 points and 8.2 rebounds for the Nike EYBL’s Oakland Soldiers, leading the team to the Peach Jam title along with No. 75 Sr PG James Akinjo (UConn).

 

It was an unlikely championship win for the Soldiers, who were only 3-7 entering the last weekend of the EYBL regular season but then got hot, going 4-0 to qualify for a Peach Jam berth.

 

Scout loves Cherry’s game.

 

“Taeshon Cherry is an extremely versatile forward that will likely be able to play the three and four at the next level,” reads Scout’s analysis. “He can hit three-pointers, grab rebounds and push the break, is a very good passer, blocks shots and plays hard.”

 

“He’s a competitive and tough kid who can succeed in multiple styles of play,” the website adds. “He’s one of the more versatile and talented players [out] west in 2018.

 

Before committing to USC in June, Cherry was considering Arizona, Florida State, Gonzaga, Oregon, San Diego State, Texas A&M and UCLA.

 

Stay tuned.
