With one year of college football eligibility left, Cleveland plans to play in 2014 with hopes of one day possibly making the NFL. He will attend the Orange’s Pro Day in the spring to see where he stands in the eyes of NFL scouts and while he knows it’s a long shot, if Cleveland can put on some pounds and continue to show he’s a threat in the passing game anything could happen.
To this day, Cleveland still follows the Chieftains football program. One of the reasons Cleveland was so prepared to play at the Division 1 level was the time he spent at Masconomet under head coach Jim Pugh and his staff.
“I’ll never forget where I came from and where it all started. Those guys are awesome over there and I keep an eye on ‘em every week,” said Cleveland. “I’ll always bleed Masco football.”
