Better Know An Eagle 2017: #4 Defensive Back Hamp Cheevers

Addazio thinks highly of this sophomore, get to know Hamp Cheevers.

NCAA Football: North Carolina State at Boston College Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Hamp Cheevers

Number: 4

Position: Defensive Back

Height: 5’11”

Weight: 165

Hometown: Trenton, FL

High School: Trenton High School

2016 Stats: According to his BCEagles.com bio he appeared in all 6 games over the past season, but did not record a tackle.

Projection: Given his size, I have to imagine that Cheevers will be projected to be a cornerback, I can’t imagine a 165lb safety. Unfortunately, BC didn’t lose any depth at the corner position with Isaac Yiadom, Kamrin Moore, Gabe McClary, Lukas Dennis and Taj Amir Torres all returning. However, if there is an injury I would expect that Cheevers would land on the depth chart. Otherwise, he seems to be a solid special teamer.

Over/Under: 10 tackles.

How’d he get here: He was ranked a two-star recruit by Rivals.com ... also received offers from Buffalo, Nevada, Tulsa, Marshall, Massachusetts, Utah State, Eastern Michigan, Idaho and Kansas.

Check out his Hudl film:

Anthony Campanile on Cheevers:” Hamp Cheevers is a guy who we think has a really high ceiling.”
