40 time: 4.54
From: Compton, California
High School: Dominguez
"Colorado has told me they could be offering this week," said Richard Sherman. "Coach Hagan told me he showed my tape to the head coach and he liked it. So today I sent them my transcripts and after they check my grades we should be good to go."
BSN has seen Sherman's transcripts and he will have absolutely no trouble qualifying with a 3.8 core GPA and a 990 SAT score.
So what would a Colorado offer do for Sherman? "Oh man, I am real excited about it," he exclaimed. "They were the first school to show a real interest in me and they have been showing a lot of love lately. Coach Hagan told me that he thinks if I come in and work hard I can play early. He said nothing will be given to me, of course. But, he truly believes I can compete if I come in ready. They are my top choice right now."
CU may not be the only school ready to tender an offer to the Dominguez athlete. "I spoke with Stanford today and they are also talking about offering.
"USC says they like my size and they think I could be a perfect lock-up corner for them. We'll see what happpens with them. They are coming by the school on Monday."
Sherman, at 6-2 1/2, is being recruited to Boulder as a receiver - his position of preference. Wideout is also where the Cardinal likes him.
He has a tentative date set to visit Boulder. "We are talking about scheduling a visit for me in early October. It would most likely be for the Texas A&M game. I am really looking forward to that."
He will be attending the Scout.com combine in Berkeley, May 15th. The athlete also plans on attending camps at Arizona and USC.
