Pomona, Calif., three-star Keston Cheathem (6-3, 195, 4.5) had a standout season on both sides of the ball as a wide receiver and defensive back. Cheathem has been so impressive that he is getting equal looks by D-I schools as a wide receiver and as a cornerback.
On the defensive side of the football, Cheathem racked up 60 tackles and he had eight pass breakups. Not bad when you consider he was rarely challenged during the season.
On offense, Cheathem caught 20 passes for 335 yards and three touchdowns. His long for the season was a 70-yards touchdown reception.
Cheathem has already taken four of his allotted visits and will take his last visit to Colorado on December 12th. He has already visited Washington (Sept. 26th), Washington State (Oct. 3rd), Michigan (Oct. 17th), and Oregon State (Oct. 25th).
Pomona high teammate four star defensive end Eugene Germany (6-4, 250, 4.65) joined Cheathem on three of his visits and there is an excellent chance that the talented duo could end up at the same college.
“There is a good chance that Eugene and I end up at the same school,” Cheathem said. “We went to Michigan, Washington State and Oregon State together.”
“I wanted to go to LSU with Eugene,” Cheathem said. “But I’m going to visit Colorado instead.”
A partial list schools that have offered Cheathem are Washington, Washington State, Oregon, Oregon State, Michigan, Colorado, Utah and Wyoming.
Cheathem has been selected to play in the Cal/Florida All-Star game this coming January and he may announce his pledge during halftime of the game.
