Breaking Down the Game of New Colorado OL Commit William Sherman

Game clips and analysis of new Colorado offensive line commit William Sherman, who plays for the talent-rich Allen (Texas) High program...

Recruiting: Committed to Colorado.

Scout Analysis: Sherman is a well-rounded offensive lineman. Good in run blocking and pass pro. He plays right tackle in high school, but probably projects best as an interior offensive lineman on the next level. He could play guard, but his quickness and athleticism also projects well to center. He does not have much experience snapping at this time, so we would project that he will begin his career as a guard. He has very good feet and is quick for a player with his size. His quickness off of the ball allows him to get great positioning. He runs the field well and pulls well. He can make blocks in open areas and on the second and third levels. He is tested against the very top levels of 6A competition in Texas, which is the highest classification.

Greg Power's Thoughts: I actually think it is a steal. Sherman is a prospect I have been high on for awhile now. He has played opposite of former No. 1 rated OT Greg Little at Allen High and now this year he will be the featured guy. We have had him pretty much rated in the Scout rankings since day one -- well before he really had any offers. When the recruiting process started he was a bit undersized and I think that slowed some schools down on him as they could not project that he would be able to have the strength to move inside, but those concerns are well behind him or much lessened now. He is more an athletic OL. But has really blossomed physically and why he ended up with 15 offers or so. Sherman is quality on the field, but away from it he is a guy I like a lot as well. Seems to be the whole package and comes from a program that understands to be successful you have to work hard. To get in the field at Allen is better than some small colleges. There are guys on the JV team who would be stars at smaller programs every year for sure.
