Buffs' recruiting momentum continues, Sherman commits

William Sherman had been favoring Mississippi State and Houston earlier in the summer, but during his time in Boulder last weekend, the Buffaloes jumped to the top of his list.

William Sherman, a three-star offensive guard prospect from Allen (Texas) High, hinted on Sunday that he would be committing to Colorado. And on Tuesday, he pulled the trigger.


Colorado was actually the first program to offer Sherman a scholarship back in Jan. 19. Over the course of the spring and summer, he added 14 more offers, including an offer from Cal, Houston, Illinois, Kansas State and Mississippi State.

On Allen's offensive line the last two years, Sherman has lined up at every position except center. He helped the Eagles to 14 wins and a 6A Region I District 6 title in 2015.

The Buffaloes project Sherman as an offensive guard.

My footwork and my ability to get to the second level to block is something coaches say they like about me,” he previously told BuffStampede.com. “I am a hard working lineman that is determined. I have a lot of experience playing at the highest level of high school football in Texas.”

Sherman is the 17th prospect from the Class of 2017 to verbally commit to the Buffaloes. Colorado did not pick up its 17th commitment until signing day last cycle, and not until mid-December two cycles ago.

And the Buffaloes have been able to pick up the lengthy list of pledges without sacrificing quality. 14 of Colorado's verbal commitment are rated three-stars or higher, and the Buffs entered Wednesday ranked No. 26 on Scout's national team recruiting rankings.
