The Opening: Kendall Sheffield

BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Scout catches up with the five-star cornerback at the prestigious event...

Kendall Sheffield, a 6-foot-0, 180-pound cornerback from Fort Bend (Texas) Marshall is one of the most heavily recruited players in the country.

Still he is not yet tipping his hand much on his favorites list.

"No favorites right now," Sheffield confirmed of the question he gets the most often.

"We have not made our plans to cut it down yet, but I am making my decision at the Under Armour game. I am very excited about that game and getting to play best against the best. I am probably going to do it with the hats, but I am not for sure yet."

He does not what he wants in a program.

"I would say that the school that feels like home and the school that I build the best relationship with coaches. I want to have a strong relationship with the position coach. Academics will be a big thing."

After The Opening he will be making his way to Tuscaloosa to see the Crimson Tide.

"I am going to Alabama on the 13th of this month. I am going to go down there to view the campus and see what the academics are like and stuff like that."

"They are known for DBs. Coach Saban is a good coach and I can see what they are doing to be successful."

In-state Texas A&M is a great option he feels as well. The recruits at The Opening were also in his ear, none more than fellow Scout five-star Daylon Mack.

"I would say that Daylon Mack has been on me the hardest about A&M. Basically saying that it is the place to go, close by home, I could do both sports (track and football) and that it is a good place."

Also in-state is the program in Austin. They have a camp coming up, but he is not sure if he will make it in for that. Still he has already visited once in the past few months.

"I have not talked to my dad about going to Texas on the 18th, but I went up there after state (track)," Sheffield reported. "They have a good staff. I talked to coach (Charlie) Strong. He was just saying it is a good place, I can do both sports and that I should just go ahead and commit."
