Throughout the off-season, we’re going to be getting to know returning NCAA Division I wrestlers from around the country. We sent questionnaires to every program in the country and will be sharing the results throughout the long trek to next fall. You can find them all whenever you like under the Getting to Know tag.
Name: Evan Cheek
School: Cleveland State
Class (for 2017-18): Jr.
Cheek’s season began with an 8-2 loss to conference rival Ronnie Perry (Lock Haven) as Cleveland State hosted the All-Star Classic. After that, the sophomore was excellent, going 27-10 overall, but he came up just short of the NCAA tournament, finishing third behind Perry and Brock Zacherl (Clarion) at the EWL tournament. He’ll return next season looking to break through and finish his year in Cleveland.
