Cheek Adds To Wright's Riches

Dominic Cheek is off the board. After practice on Friday the St. Anthony's wing ended is recruitment and picked a Big East power.

The Villanova Wildcats were always in the hunt for St. Anthony's wing Dominic Cheek. Heck, they were real close to getting him last season; as were a few others.

On Friday night, the 6-foot-6 Cheek picked Jay Wright's crew after considering Kansas, Rutgers and Pittsburgh.

Villanova's decorated recruiting class, already tabbed No. 5 in the nation, is about to get a bump in the rankings. Cheek is ranked the No. 15 prospect in the nation.

He joins Maalik Wayns, an elite point guard, and forwards Mouphtauo Yarou and Isaiah Armwood in what is sure to be a dynamite Big East quartet.
