My question is, would it be a bad idea to date your guy friend if he had recently gotten out of a relationship where the girl cheated on him? Would he just be using you as a rebound, or could it be okay since you were friends before?

It is a bad idea to date him NOW, but it's not a bad idea to date him later on (after he's over this matter).
1) He NEEDS time to heal from being hurt. Being cheated by a girlfriend SUCKS big time.
2) He might use you as someone to fulfill him emotionally temporarily whilst not really liking you in person (yes like what you've said using you as a rebound)
3) You might get into a emotional trap by getting emotionally attached to him eventually and regret doing it in a rush. In the end, both of you get unhappy.
Why rush it when you can take your time being with someone? Whilst life is too short to not pursue what you want, life is too short to make too many mistakes. If you are truly his best friend, be there for him as a true best friend and respect his space as a best friend.3
