USC head basketball coach Andy Enfield got a big commitment from one of Southern California’s top prospects on Friday.
Four-star recruit Taeshon Cherry, a rising senior and power forward at San Diego’s St. Augustine, has committed to the play for the Trojans.
The 6-foot-8, 210-pound Cherry is ranked by the 247 Sports Composite as the No. 6 player in his class in California, the No. 15 power forward and the No. 39 overall recruit.
Cherry chose the Trojans over LA crosstown rival UCLA as well as heavy hitters such as Kansas, Arizona, Gonzaga and Oregon, to name a few.
In March, the Trojans reached the NCAA Tournament’s Round of 32 for the first time since 2009. Enfield is keeping that positive momentum going on the recruiting trail, with Cherry the latest addition to the Trojan family.
