Sherman Camps At Pitt

David Sherman made his first prospect camp last week to the University of Pittsburgh, where he was one of the top receivers in attendance. Today, Sherman talks about his Pitt experience.

Last Saturday's camp was deepest at the wide receiver position. Beaver Falls (PA) 2012 receiver Royce Watson, 2012's Lamont Baldwin out of Archbishop Carroll (MD) and 2011 receiver Timmy Keith, out of Manassas (VA) Osbourn, and 2012 receiver Gary Smith out of Manassas (VA) Osbourn Park.

One in-state receiver that made a lot of nice plays was Philadelphia (PA) West Catholic receiver David Sherman. As a junior, Sherman finished with 24 receptions for 512 yards and two touchdowns, good enough for second-team all-conference honors. On defense, he racked up 43 tackles and three interceptions. The Pitt camp was a good experience for him.

"That was my first time there, first time anywhere," Sherman said. "I talked to Pittsburgh a little bit. The receivers coach told me to send in my highlight tape, after my first two games (of his senior year), and he gave me his card."

Sherman had already had some interest from Temple, after taking home receiver MVP honors at the Schuman's National Underclassman Combine in New Jersey last month. Rutgers also took notice, and Eastern Michigan coaches took notice of him after the Pitt camp.

"I liked the Pitt camp," Sherman repeated. "It was hot, it was pretty hot. But the one-on-ones, the seven-on-sevens, I got evaluated with that, and I liked that."

He also took home a few pointers from receivers coach Scott Turner, someone he felt helped him a lot in just one day of work.

"He was pretty cool," Sherman said of Turner. He told me little stuff, like when people break down for my route. All you do is this little shove-off move. You do that in different situations. It helped."

As of right now, Sherman feels Temple is the school closest to offering.
