Dominic Cheek: A Star Emerges from City Streets

Since last Friday marked the official start of high school hoops practice in New Jersey, we recommend you check out this tremendous video piece on Dominic Cheek by Collin Orcutt and Michael Preston of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. Orcutt and his colleagues worked on this piece for several weeks, following Dom through workouts, practices and recruiting at St. Anthony in Jersey City.

The 6-foot-5 Cheek, a first-team All-State selection last season and likely McDonald’s All-American has visited Kansas, Villanova, Memphis, Rutgers and Pitt, and could decide at any time.

“Whenever’s the right time, that’s when I’ll decide,” Cheek said.

“I guess a lot of people will be asking a lot of questions, but whenever is the right time it will happen.”
