After letting things settle from back-to-back weekend trips, Georgia guard Cashmere Wright has found a place to call home next year for college. The 6-foot, 170-pound combo guard announced his decision on Thursday.
Wright verbally committed to Cincinnati, shortly after seeing the Big East school last weekend with his parents. Wright's Hoop Planet AAU coach Darren Darby confirmed the news.
"He just announced it and said it is official," Darby said. "I think his thinking was that he has more of an opportunity to be a vital cog in what Cincinnati wants to do than it was at Tennessee. There was more of a need at the point guard spot for him there."
Wright visited Tennessee the week before his visit to the Queen City. The two schools jumped into the mix after Wright announced he would re-open his recruitment from Clemson.
Darby said he believes Wright will make a strong impact for Cincinnati.
"I think he'll have plenty of time to play there and once he gets stronger and they teach him how to become an even better point guard, he's going to shine in their open floor," Darby said. "He's got to get stronger for the Big East and once he does, he'll be fine. Cashmere is one of those kids that is always trying to prove everyone wrong."
The four-star guard joins Cincinnati native Yancy Gates in the 2008 recruiting class for the Bearcats.
