Cheeseboro is one of those wide receivers that does many things well and is extremely reliable and productive as both an outside and inside receiver. He has adequate size and lean build. Displays good burst off the line and very good top end speed for the position. Gets into routes quickly. He has a knack for getting deep and running by DB's that do not respect his top end speed. Is also a solid route runner both inside and out in the short and intermediate passing game. Is precise and does a nice job breaking off sharp cuts and is able to create separation at the top of the stem on option, comebacks, digs and curl routes. He shows consistent, quality hands with a willingness to go over the middle. Tucks quickly and consistently extends away from his frame to haul in passes. Has flashed the ability to make catches in traffic and when covered. While Cheeseboro makes plays and is reliable, he is not necessarily sudden or explosive in the open field. After the catch if he gets a seam he can make some things happen, but when in a short area he does not always show the change-of-direction necessary to make people miss consistently. Takes some time to gather when putting together moves in the open field. As a result, he may not make as many plays after the catch at the next level as he does here. Cheeseboro is a good prospect and you know what you are going to get from him play-to-play.
Till appears to be even taller than his physical dimensions. He is extremely active and can run well for a tall and lanky defensive back. Displays excellent range and can cover a lot of territory with his quick reactions and long strides. Closes fast on run support and attacks the ball carrier from the inside out and takes away the cutback because of the tempo he keeps on the runner. Likes to play it physical and can really unload on the opponent; tackles a little high at times but has good explosion on contact. Breaks instantly on passes thrown in front of him from the free safety position. Can get up into the air to make a play on the football; has the soft hands to come down with the interception and the running ability to make important yards after the pick. Equally as gifted on offense as a wide receiver. Has confidence and toughness to catch the ball in a crowd. Runs sharp routes and is quick out of the break. A solid contributor on special teams coverage units. Till is a very steady athlete that is a play maker both sides of the football. He should be able to be a very productive player in the secondary at the next level.
Pitt has received a verbal commitment from T.J. Clemmings, a 6-foot-6, 265-pound defensive end from Paterson (N.J.) Catholic.
Clemmings made an unofficial visit to Pitt this past weekend, and chose the Panthers over scholarship offers from Florida, Miami, Notre Dame, Penn State, Rutgers and Tennessee. Clemmings has played only one season of high school football, yet is ranked the nation's No. 24 defensive end prospect by Scout.com and No. 31 by Rivals.com.
Three star cornerback Louis Young (Good Counsel HS, Olney MD) made a verbal commitment to the Cardinal back in October, but had backed off that decision in recent months. Now, however, he's back, and seemingly for good: "I’m done talking visits. This is my commitment. This is official – it’s done and it’s a wrap. I don’t need to see anywhere else."
