Redwine Has Five Schools in Mind

Sheldrick Redwine, a three-star defensive back out of Miami (Fla.) Killian High School, has a handful of programs soaring up his list of suitors after de-committing from the West Virginia Mountaineers a few months ago.

One of the few offered prospects to take part in the University of South Florida's satellite camp in Miramar this past week was Sheldrick Redwine, a 6-foot-1.5, 191-pound three-star aggressive cornerback with offers from the likes of West Virginia, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Illinois and USF.

The former West Virginia commit was in Tampa Bay last month to visit to the Bulls campus on an unofficial visit and enjoyed himself in his brief stay.

This time around, defensive backs coach Ron Cooper had the chance to take his relationship with the in-state defensive back out to the practice field.

"(The camp) was really good," Redwine said. "I got to talk to all of the coaches, including the head coach (Willie Taggart). We did circuit drills, ladder drills, individual drills, and then one-on-one's.

"I ended up winning the fastest man. I did alright, but I could of done better. The coaches thought I did good. They invited me to Saturday Night Live, which was invite only."

Redwine has seen his list of college suitors expand by the week, but if you're not a serious contender in his recruitment, it won't be much longer before you're on the receiving end of some disappointing news.

"I pretty much have my top my five made up, but I'm not going to release it yet," Redwine said. "I know my top schools right now.

"I'm going to ride it out until Signing Day. I'll have my decision after my five official visits, but it has always been a dream to announce on Signing Day with the three hats, you know?"

There's been a trio of schools in Redwine's year since his recruitment reached new heights during the spring evaluating period. Over the next couple of weeks, the Miami (Fla.) Killian defender will be paying back those programs with visits to their respective campuses.

"I'm going to West Virginia on July 8 or July 26," Redwine said. "I'm going to Kentucky on July 18 and Arkansas I haven't scheduled a date for yet. I think that's probably going to be it."

A number of schools are intrigued by Redwine's versatility to play both cornerback and safety at the college level. For Redwine, he prefers lining up on the outside at cornerback.
