Dominic Cheek Makes The Call

Posted by Marcus on December 14, 2008

Only a few days after narrowing his potential schools to two, Dominic Cheek (SG, 6’5″, 2009) has made the decision to play basketball at Villinova.

Cheek is a deep shooter who will likely be one of the premier shooters in college baskeball very soon, but he’ll have to work on being a consistent point producer in order to make a full impact at the college level. The concern with elite shooters like Cheek is that sometimes they can rely on their deep shot right away and never develop the other aspects of their game.

Cheek is also a big guard who was highly sought after by several elite programs.

Thoughts on Talib Zanna’s Commit to Pitt

Posted by Marcus on October 6, 2008

Thought I’d pass along some of PittOaklandZoo’s thoughts on recent basketball recruit Talib Zanna’s commitment and Pitt Panther basketball:

The bright side […] is that Jamie Dixon got a 4th freshman commitment out of that class, 6’8″ center Talib Zanna out of Bishop McNamara HS in Forestville, MD. This is a guy with a lot of upside, another “sleeper” for Jamie Dixon. This is a good pickup, with the depth in the frontcourt we’ll have for 2009 (Gary McGhee, Dwight Miller, DeJuan Blair, Dante Taylor) we’ll have the flexibility to redshirt JJ Richardson and/or Zanna.

Talib Zanna commits to Pitt basketball

Posted by Marcus on September 30, 2008

Talib Zanna (C, 6’9″, 2009) has committed to Pitt as his college of choice for his basketball career. He had also been linked to a few other schools, but it seemed like Pitt had the inside track. Here’s some video of him and George Mason commit Rashad Whack:
