Cheadle impresses at NIKE

PALO ALTO, Calif. – Bakersfield, Calif., offensive tackle Justin Cheadle was one of the more impressive offensive linemen at Saturday's NIKE Training Camp at Stanford. But that should not be a major surprise, especially with all the attention he's already getting from the college coaches.
"I had a good day and had a few solid repetitions in the one-on-ones," Cheadle said. "I think my frame really caused some of those defensive linemen fits. I enjoyed the camp a lot. I wasn't really nervous because I went to it last year and everything, so I knew what to expect."
Cheadle said he thought he played well enough Saturday to get more attention from the college coaches. He's already gotten calls in May from Nevada, Fresno State and Utah, but that's just a short list of his suitors.
He has early scholarship offers from Arizona, Colorado State and Fresno State. He had previously listed Southern Cal as his top team, but at this point he said he's not leaning one way or the other and teams like Cal, Oregon, UCLA and Washington have also been involved with him.
"I'm not really leaning anywhere yet," he said.
"I'm just out there fishing. I really think today could help me earn even more offers. My top group would be Cal, Wisconsin, Miami and Utah. I just like the way they play football. They all play my style of ball."
