You might think that Kendall Sheffield will stay in his home state of Texas, and you might be absolutely right. Why would the recruit out of Fort Bend Marshall High School (TX) want to leave his home turf?
It appears that the shutdown cornerback wants to join the Texas A&M Aggies, which should not cause any complaint from Johnny Manziel. Johnny Football is probably more worried about his own starting spot at the moment, but he could be signing some big endorsements by the end of the year.
Sheffield speaks about the Aggies like he could envision himself playing in their system, which should be a great sign for their coaching staff.
“It’s a good school,” Sheffield said about the Aggies to SBNation. “I’ve been up there a lot lately and I’ve just been building a relationship with defensive backs coach Joseph, who came from Nebraska. He’s very technical and I like that. He showed us a lot of tape of cornerbacks at Nebraska, how they did in practice and how that translated to making big-time plays in games.”
The five star cornerback is one of the elite athletes in the 2015 class, and he should be one of the best cornerbacks at the college level. If he does not end up at A&M, then I would think that he rolls with Alabama. I’m betting that he would not hear any complaint from Nick Saban.
I think that the Aggies would benefit from his services quite a bit more though, and so it would not surprise me to see him to stay in Texas at the end of the day. You can bet that we will keep you posted here at Rant Sports Prep once he ends up making his decision, and that we will also provide lots of opinion on it as well.
