Danny Cheek put on a show last week in San Diego at The Holiday Classic, one of the premier tournaments in the country.
Strangers approached the Corona del Mar High guard after he poured in 28 points against Taft of Woodland Hills, ranked No. 10 in the ESPN RISE West Region poll. They all had one question for the senior.
"Where I was going to school," Cheek said. He said they wanted to find out his collegiate future, and when he told them it was at Northern Arizona University, many were surprised. "[They were] telling me I should have went Pac 10. I should have waited a little bit longer [before I committed], but I just felt comfortable with my decision with Northern Arizona."
The Lumberjacks are fortunate to have landed a player as talented as the 6-foot-4 Cheek.
Some of the nation's top recruits were on full display during the 21st edition of the tournament held at Torrey Pines High. Cheek belonged in the class.
