Athletic CB from Texas holding Nebraska offer

There is a saying when it comes to football and recruiting and that is you either have speed or you are chasing it. This cornerback from Brenham (Texas) has speed. More than that, he is already sitting on five division one offers. Distance isn't going to be a consideration for him, so who can get this speedy cornerback?

There is a lot of talent at Brenham (Texas) this year. There is Jaret Lee, Ahmard Howard and Shawn Sullivan. Sullivan is a 5-foot-11 and 182 pound cornerback/safety/wide receiver. He pretty much does it all for Brenham.

"Our season went pretty good last year," Sullivan said. "We lost in the state semi-finals. We were 14-1, I think. I played cornerback, safety and slot receiver. I don't really know what my stats were. I was all-district as a cornerback. I didn't get any offers for offense."

If Sullivan had to sit down and make a choice about which side of the ball to play he might side with his preference of defense. More than that, he prefers playing cornerback over safety, but he has played both positions before.

"I like playing defense better. Schools are looking at me as a corner and I prefer cornerback over safety. I would say my speed, my quickness and my strength are by biggest assets at cornerback. I like to play bump and run, man to man coverage."

Sullivan is already sitting on five offers. He admitted that a couple of them are recruiting him the hardest, but he hasn't thought about his favorites yet. "I have Kansas, TCU, Wisconsin, Oklahoma State, and Nebraska. I have five offers. I would say that Oklahoma State and Nebraska are recruiting me the hardest. I haven't thought about any favorites yet."

When it comes to making this decision, Sullivan has his thoughts on getting his education first. He also isn't concerned with having to go far away to go to school. "I am looking for an education first when it comes to making this decision. Distance isn't an issue. Going far away doesn't bother me."

Sullivan is going to stay busy this summer with seven on seven, some camps and a combine. "I am going to do some camps this year. I am going to go to Oklahoma State, TCU and I am going to try and go to Nebraska. I am also going to go to the Nike combine at Texas A&M."
