Floyd Names A Leader

Jr. Sharrif Floyd was born to play football. Although he claims to never have officially watched an NFL or collegiate football game until some time last year, Sharrif let his natural athletic ability take over en route to becoming one of the most highly recruited and dominant football players in the Northeast.

He is currently approaching his 5th year of playing organized football with the natural strength and tenacity to become one of the best in the country.

Sharrif Floyd definitely isn't short on personality. When asked about his style of play, he stated "I am a gladiator. I win over the crowd. My coaches can ask me to do anything and it will get done… even if they ask me to play quarterback". The 1st Team All-State, City and Public League selection is on a mission to become the biggest name to come out of Philadelphia in some time. Sharrif dominated at both offensive and defensive line for George Washington H.S. (PA) and claims a 3.0 GPA, 365 lb. bench, 500 lb. squat and 4.7 forty. His numbers sound NFL Draft ready.

The 6'3 295 pound juggernaut is being recruited by many programs around the country, the most notable being Rutgers, Penn State, Alabama, Michigan, Oklahoma , Miami, Georgia, Wisconsin, Boston College and Tennessee to name a few. He currently holds 6 offers from Rutgers, Penn State, UCLA, Maryland, Temple and Florida International. At this time, his clear frontrunner is Rutgers.

Sharrif mentioned, "I love Rutgers (repeatedly). I'm waiting for someone to top them. I love the way I fit in and the way the staff truly seems to care about the players. I feel at home there and know I will be taken good care of". His three main factors in his final selection are overall team GPA, comfortability within the atmosphere and his relationship with the coaching staff.

Floyd further stated, "I don't have to go to the best team. I just want to go somewhere that they make me feel at home… like Rutgers. Also I want to be able to have a father/son relationship with the head coach. I want to be able to talk to him about any and everything. Greg Schiano seems like that type of guy".

The super standout is one of the first players to be invited to play in the U.S. Army All-American Game which is a prestigious honor that only a handful of kids in the nation will receive. He plans to dominate and show the world who he is. Sharrif will make his collegiate commitment known at the game on national television next winter.
