Taeshon Cherry Decision Date Jacob Polacheck/D1Vision

Taeshon Cherry, the 6-foot-8 power forward from St. Augustine (CA) High School, announced via Twitter that he will be making his college decision on June 30. He also announced that he will be choosing between Oregon, Texas A&M, USC, Arizona, Gonzaga, and SDSU.

Cherry, who cut Florida State and UCLA from his list, broke down his final list for D1VISION last month at the Nike EYBL Session in Los Angeles:

Oregon: “Dana Altman is a great coach. They made the final four this year. Their style of play is great. It really fits with my style.”

San Diego State: “Close to home, close to my family, coach (Brian) Dutcher is a great guy. We have a great relationship with each other.”

Texas A&M: “Coach (Amir) Abdur-Rahim and Coach (Billy) Kennedy always come down and see my all the time. They came to my house and had dinner. We just talked about life. Not just basketball. My relationship with them is the greatest out of any school I have.”

USC: “Coach (Andy) Enfield have been recruiting me since ninth grade. They’re big for me because their style of play is just running up and down. They get guys to the league.”

Arizona: “Great school. Coach (Sean) Miller and I have had a great relationship over the years. He’s a great guy. Coach (Lorenzo) Romar joining the staff is big for me because he recruited me at Washington. I have a great relationship with every coach on that staff.”

Gonzaga: “They made the championship. Every time coach Mark Few talks to me, it’s like he’s trying to get me to where I want to get which is the NBA. He’s a great guy.”

Cherry originally told D1VISION that he planned to take official visits in the fall but that no longer seems like the case. He is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 40 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 5 player from the state of California.
