Sheko, a tall and athletic 6-4 198 Safety, chose the Cardinals after visiting the Muncie campus this weekend.
“They have great coaches and the campus was great,” Sheko said. “It wasn’t too far from home. I was comfortable and my teammates are great. And they have great academics there.”
Sheko, who played Safety for the first time this past season, not only had to learn a new position (switching from QB as a junior) but also landing at a new school after transferring to Simeon from Hillcrest in Country Club Hills, IL.
“It was a tough transition,” Sheko said. “But I made it happen.”
Sheko bring a large, rangy frame that can serve the Cardinals in several ways. At 6-4, he could continue to be a ballhawking and hard hitting safety, or he can move up and play as either an OLB or at the Cardinals’ hybrid Nickle-LB spot.
Whatever postion Sheko plays though, look for him to make a big impact.
