Or could it be Cheek to Creek, as in Dominic Cheek to Mo Creek?
Tom Crean’s already received a verbal from Creek, a high scoring 2009 guard who had a strong summer on the AAU circuit. Now IU has jumped in on the recruitment of Cheek, a smooth guard out of the St. Anthony program in Jersey City, N.J. Here’s a tidbit we had about him in today’s paper.
Dominic Cheek, one of the top senior basketball players in the country, is considering a scholarship offer from Indiana and may visit Bloomington soon.
â€œI think they are going to squeeze a visit out of Cheek, and heâ€™s one of the better players in the country,â€ said St. Anthony (Jersey City, N.J.) head coach Bob Hurley. â€œThe former coaching staff did nothing with him. This group has done a good job to come in late.â€
Cheek, a 6-foot-5 guard, starred for Hurleyâ€™s team last year as it went 32-0 â€” winning the programâ€™s 25th state title â€” and finished No. 1 in several high school polls. He has known Roshown McLeod, a former St. Anthony player who was recently hired to become Indiana coach Tom Creanâ€™s third assistant, most of his life and currently plays with McLeodâ€™s younger brother, Devone.
â€œThe projections for Cheek are unbelievable,â€ said Hurley, who is not noted for hyberbole or hyping his own players. â€œHeâ€™s graceful as can be. Heâ€™s been a legend around here since 7th grade.â€
