Recruit Roundup | Connor Cashaw commits to Rice
Another target is off the board for Penn basketball.
Adlai Stevenson high school (Ill.) senior Connor Cashaw committed to Rice on Tuesday evening. Cashaw had received interest from Ivy schools, including Penn and Harvard, and other mid-majors but ultimately chose Rice in an announcement at his high school.
Penn was not considered a finalist but Harvard was one of the schools very much in on his recruiting.
Scott Pera, an assistant coach for Penn basketball until this year, is now an assistant at Rice under head coach Mike Rhoades.
Cashaw is a 6-foot-4 shooting guard and will join the Owls next fall.
