The above video features game footage of 2017 three-star offensive lineman and Colorado commit William Sherman in powerhouse Allen High School's 42-23 Texas Class 6A Division I state quarterfinal victory against Duncanville this past Saturday afternoon at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The 6-foot-3, 294-pound Sherman played right tackle and left tackle in the win, which saw Allen's offensive line lead the way to a 431-yard afternoon that included 344 rushing yards and an impressive 9.3 yards per carry. Allen junior running backs Kirby Bennett and Brock Sturges combined for 266 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
Sherman and 2018 center/tackle Trey Stratford are Allen's headliners on the offensive line.
Sherman is a three-year starter on Allen's offensive line, meaning he played in the fall of 2014 on the third of Allen's three-peat state title team. That squad was also Scout's 2014 national champion and featured former five-star quarterback Kyler Murray, former five-star offensive tackle Greg Little, and numerous other high-major recruits.
Once he's in college, Sherman could be position-versatile because of his abilities and skill set. Playing for the state of Texas' largest high school and one of the nation's top programs should help him prepare for the Power Five conference level.
Sherman is a very versatile and 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 Powers, Scout national analyst
