Tennessee will get the first official visit from St. Anthony star Dominic Cheek.
“He’s going to visit Tennessee,” St. Anthony coach Bob Hurley said. “That’s the first one that’s set.”
Omari Knight, Cheek’s uncle, previously said the visit would take place this coming weekend, which is when the Volunteers host SEC rival Florida in a nationally televised football game.
Seton Hall and Memphis have already had in-home visits with the 6-foot-5 Cheek, and Kansas head coach Bill Self and assistant Joe Dooley are in tonight (Monday).
Rutgers head coach Fred Hill will have an in-home on Sunday, followed by Villanova head coach Jay Wright on the 23rd, Hurley said.
Cheek will take officials to Kansas, Villanova, Wake Forest and Tennessee, leaving just one for Memphis, Indiana, UConn, Pitt, Rutgers or Seton Hall.
