One-time UK recruit of interest Zylan Cheatham announced his commitment to San Diego State on Saturday night.
Cheatham — a Phoenix, Ariz., power forward — chose the Aztecs over Washington, Arizona State and New Mexico. Kentucky assistant coach Orlando Antigua visited Cheatham at his high school earlier this year, but the Cats never showed continued interest and didn’t offer a scholarship.
Scout.com ranks Cheatham as the No. 68 overall prospect in the Class of 2014. The Aztecs also have commitments from two other players in the Scout Top 100: small forward Malik Pope (No. 26) and shooting guard Trey Kell (No. 71).
