Not so fast.
On Monday night, the 6-foot-4 Sheets gave Benny Moss a verbal commitment to attend UNC-Wilmington this fall as a member of the Class of 2006. To score a commitment from a young man with Sheets' ability to drain 3s is quite the pull for late June.
"I got all my requirements fulfilled in the second semester for school and I realized that I was eligible to leave and I went for it," Sheets said. "I had a feeling in my heart and I think I'm ready."
Sheets had a relationship with Moss when the coach was at Charlotte and it carried over to Wilmington. After visiting the school Sheets made up his mind. He saw a few other campuses and decided to become a Seahawk.
"I then had a chance to meet with Coach Moss and he's a good teacher and a good man and I just look forward to being a part of the family. I feel like I'm ready and I didn't feel like there was any reason for me to wait another year."
