Five-star forward Taeshon Cherry had just released his top eight schools list back in May, but has already cut off two more schools from his list. He released the new list via his Twitter account:
He’s got Gonzaga, San Diego State, Arizona, Texas A&M, USC and Oregon on there. He cut the UCLA Bruins and Florida State Seminoles from the list.
