2019 point guard Grant Sherfield talks SMU, recruiting

At adidas Uprising in Atlanta, few point guards were as productive as 2019 PG Grant Sherfield. He broke down his recruitment with Scout.

2019 North Crowley (Tex.) point guard Grant Sherfield has enjoyed a pretty successful adidas Uprising start individually and while his team started 1-2 on the weekend in Atlanta, he's been playing well for his team, averaging 20.5 points, three rebounds and 2.9 assists per game on the circuit so far.

"I feel like this weekend has been going pretty good. We are 1-2 now and just trying to finish out strong—2-2. It is going pretty good," Sherfield told Scout. "I’ve been wanting to prove that I can play both ways, offensively and defensively, and that I can run the team."

UCLA, SMU, Oklahoma State and Kansas are the schools recruiting the 6-1, 185-pound guard the hardest right now.

"KU and UCLA are some of the best schools you can play for in the country and it is an honor just to have offers from them and the others," said the Marcus Smart YGC36 guard. "Oklahoma State and SMU, are close to home. That is what stands out about those two and they are both great programs."

Sherfield has taken note of the guards that SMU has developed and the system the Mustangs play in.

"SMU produces great guards; they let their guards play," said the rising junior. "They let everyone play and they are just a great school education-wise too."

SMU head coach Tim Jankovich remains in consistent contact when he can be with Sherfield.

"After he got the head coaching job—when Larry Brown was there, he was really good — and [Jank] has kept it going," Sherfield said. "People might have thought there would be a drop off but there wasn’t. He is a good coach."

Indiana has been talking to the four-star guard a lot as of late as well.

When it does come down to a final decision in the far future for Sherfield, it'l be all about comfort with the coaching staff.

"(It comes down) to being comfortable with the decision that I’m making and being comfortable with the coach."
