Florida TE has three offers

Sheldon Fleming is a standout tight end prospect from East Lee County High and Scout caught up with him for the latest.

Sheldon Fleming has three scholarship offers -- Minnesota, Ball State, and UMass. He's hoping to get more.

"I had a real good performance in my team's spring game so hopefully that gets out there," Fleming said. "A lot of coaches came by the school but I haven't talked to a whole bunch of them. I have to call some of them back."

One of the schools that came by but didn't offer was Miami. They invited him to a camp, though, and he went.

"I went to Miami's camp on Sunday," he said. "It was good. I learned a lot. I had gone last summer too and I thought the competition was a lot better this year. I guess more kids knew about it."

Fleming, who is primarily a tight end, worked out mostly on defense at Miami.

"They wanted to see me more as a defensive end," he said. "I thought I did pretty good. I didn't get a chance to talk to the coaches after because some of the players I went with wanted to leave. I'll call them up soon and see what's going on but I'm definitely interested in Miami."

As a Prospect: The first that really jumps out at you about Fleming is how much athleticism he has. He can really run, change directions, and do a lot of things that a lot of kids aren't capable of doing on a football field. He wasn't used much in the passing game last season but plays some on each side of the ball and already has the ideal size you look for in a major college prospect.
