Sheffield exploded onto the recruiting scene early as he gained 1272 total yards and 14 touchdowns during his freshman season. He is 6-foot-2, 175-pounds, and has great speed and athleticism.
“I think some of my strengths are being a team player first.” Sheffield said. “I’m pretty elusive with the ball in my hands. I can run with the ball after the catch pretty well. I play the star position when I’m playing defense.”
Sheffield has already heard from many coaches so far, and has already planned a few upcoming visits.
“I’m going to South Carolina this weekend and then to Florida State next weekend.” Sheffield said. “Georgia defensive coordinator Mel Tucker reached out to one of my coaches. He wants me to come up and visit Georgia soon.”
On film Sheffield looks the part physically, and really stands out on the field. He run very well, has good burst, and has that extra gear coaches look for in a running back. He does a good job of eluding tacklers, bouncing off of tacklers, and finishing runs.
Sheffield also catches the ball well, as he recorded 316 receiving yards in his first year. With his size at his age, there is a possibility Sheffield could project better at receiver at the next level. As of right now, he is a tremendous athlete who could be one of the best prospects in the country for the 2016 class.
