Dominic Cheek told the Indiana Scout site that he plans to visit Indiana.
I hope to have more from Cheek after the Boost Mobile Elite 24 practice tomorrow, but Cheek’s connection to Indiana is now twofold. Head coach Tom Crean, who just received a 10-year extension worth more than $20 million, began recruiting the 6-foot-5 Cheek when he was at Marquette.
Crean also just hired former St. Anthony standout Roshown McLeod, who played for Bob Hurley at St. Anthony and then competed at Duke and St. John’s before spending four years in the NBA. Cheek told the site that if he opted to go to Indiana, he knows that McLeod would have his back.
Cheek, ranked No. 16 in the Class of 2009 by Rivals, previously listed UConn, Kansas, Wake Forest, Tennessee, Villanova, Pitt, Seton Hall and Rutgers among his possible targets.
Omari Knight, Cheek’s uncle, wasn’t aware of Cheek’s comments about Indiana but didn’t rule out a potential visit.
“At the end of the day we will pick the school that’s the best fit for Dominic,” he said.
