Guard Danny Cheek transferred to Corona del Mar High two years ago from Mater Dei for the opportunity to be a starter.
Cheek made the most of his move and now he has decided on his college future.
The standout senior guard has verbally committed to play basketball at Northern Arizona University, said Sea Kings Coach Ryan Schachter on Thursday.
The 6-foot-4 Cheek led the Sea Kings last season in scoring, averaging 13.8 points per game. Cheek earned a share of the Newport-Mesa Dream Player of the Year award and received first-team All-Pacific Coast League and second-team All-CIF Southern Section Division III-A laurels as a junior.
With Cheek back for a third season, the Sea Kings expect to contend for a section title. CdM went 24-4, 10-0 in the Pacific Coast League and reached the quarterfinals of the playoffs in 2009-10.
