"Some of the schools I like right now are Oregon, Stanford, USC, Mississippi State, Washington, Arizona, Colorado, and Colorado State," said Richard Sherman.

He is awaiting his first offer.

Sherman thinks Arizona is a school that is on the verge of something big. "They have a lot of young, great players there. I think they are going to be something special. My guess is I could fit in well there and possibly compete for playing time early on."

Coach Tuiasosopo is after him for the Cats.

As a junior, Sherman caught 23 passes for 415 yards and six touchdowns. On defense, he had four interceptions and one fumble recovery. Sherman was named first team all-league at receiver. "I am quick and I get to the ball when it is in the air. I have great jumping ability and football really comes easy for me. On defense, I can read the receivers well and jump on their routes."

Schools like him on both sides of the ball. "Some say that I can play on either side for them. Some say they like me for offense and others like me for defense. I prefer to play receiver."

Sherman attended the USC Junior Day over the weekend and will also attend the 'SC elite camp and Cal three-day camp.

He carries a 3.8 core GPA and scored a 990 on the SAT. Sherman would like to major in Business or Accounting.
