One of the budding stars at the Great American Shootout is 2019 guard prospect Grant Sherfield.
On Saturday, playing for YGC36 Elite, which is sponsored by Marcus Smart, Sherfield showed an advanced scoring package. At 6-foot-1, Sherfield does a good job of creating space for shot opportunities. He shoots the ball with confidence from long-range and made multiple pull-ups from the mid-range area.
“I think I’ve been playing real good actually,” Sherfield told Scout after a 14-point outing. “I’ve been paying my game. My teammates trust me and my coaches trust. I’ve been playing well”
“I’m real good with the ball,” he added. “I’m pretty craft with.”
Although just a sophomore, Sherfield has built a reputation as a scorer. But Sherfield says he’s at his best when he mixes his scoring with facilitating.
“When I’m at my best I’m scoring,” Sherfield said. “I’m distributing. I’m playing defense. That’s when I’m at my best.”
Among the head coaches that watched Sherfield on Saturday were Scott Drew, Billy Kennedy and Brad Underwood.
“It’s been going real good,” he said about his recruitment. “A lot of good schools have been offering me. I’m just blessed to be in the situation that I am.”
Sherfield claims early scholarship offers from Texas, Baylor, TCU, Texas A&M, SMU, San Diego and Oklahoma State. To go with the offers, Sherfield has already taken unofficial visits to Baylor, Kansas, Oklahoma State and Texas.
Although living in Texas and going to Arlington (Tex.) Mansfield Summit, Sherfield is from Kansas and grew up following the Jayhawks.
“I’m from Wichita, Kansas so I grew up a KU fan,” he said.
Sherfield doesn’t a timetable on making his college decision.
