Konchalski on Cheek, Strickland and Jackson; Carolina Has Best Recruiting Class for ’09
As part of SNY’s extensive NCAA early signing period coverage, we will unveil over the next few days a five-part interview with nationally respected recruiting expert Tom Konchalski of the HSBI Report. In this piece that we filmed last week at the SNY studio in Manhattan, Tom gives his impressions of three of the top local players from the Class of 2009: uncommitted wing Dominic Cheek of St. Anthony, who is considering Kansas, Memphis, Villanova, Pittsburgh and Rutgers and will likely sign in the spring; North Carolina-bound guard Dexter Strickland of St. Patrick of Elizabeth, N.J.; and Rice commitTamir Jackson of St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark.
