Cheek sends in LOI
After a lengthy ordeal of miscommunication, Lawrenceville (Ga.) Archer cornerback Trevellous Cheek finally signed and sent in his National Letter of Intent on Tuesday morning, and will be a California Golden Bear come fall.
"I don't want to get into detail with everything, but coach told me he was sending it, and it should be to me on this date," Cheek said, "and he said that he sent it, and I received the email, but it really wasn't it, so I called him and I got the official stuff this weekend."
The coaching staff is expected to call Cheek later in the day.
"I'm still working on the application," Cheek said. "But, I got my letter of intent in, and I got my scholarship and stuff, got all of that done and signed, and I'm going to finish signing my application -- that was a big part of it. Everything's situated now. I'm happy to be a Bear."
Cheek will be coming out to Berkeley the weekend of the spring game on March 23, spending three days in California before heading back to Georgia.
"I'm looking forward to meeting my future teammates," said Cheek, who will be joining his fellow 2013 signees on the spring game sidelines. "I've been talking to them a lot, and I'm ready to meet my boys. These are the people I'm going to be playing ball with for the next four or five years, so I'm looking forward to it."
Cheek has spoken often with defensive backs coach Randy Stewart throughout the process, and he's excited to learn under the coach who produced Nnamdi Asomugha.
"We talk every chance we get," Cheek said. "He's a pretty good guy. I can tell that he's a good coach. I've been reading a lot about him, and listening to what Avery's telling me about him. He's been telling me that he's a really good coach. I can't wait to get out there and play up under him ... He told me he needed some DBs, so he told me he can't wait to get me in."
EXPERT ANALYSIS from Analyst CHAD SIMMONS
Cheek is a fearless corner who plays with an edge. He likes to gamble in coverage and that can pay off at times, but it can also get him in trouble. He is solid in coverage, but he has to get stronger in press coverage. He is on the smaller side, but he can open his hips and run with receivers. He will struggle with the bigger wideouts and he is better playing off the ball than he is on it due to his size and lack of strength. His ball skills are above average.
