Bootleg Video: Richard Sherman

When you see an athletic 6'2" receiver from Compton (Calif.) at a camp, your Stanford recruiting radar does not light up. But Richard Sherman has a 3.8 core GPA and an offer from the Cardinal. Here is video from his day at the Scout.com Combine in Berkeley on Sunday, earning acclaim as one of the top two receivers. Also enjoy an in-depth two-part interview.

Sherman was a pleasant find for us Sunday at the Scout.com All-American Combine in Berkeley.  To start the day, we learned that the standout student-athlete had recently added a scholarship offer from Stanford.  As we followed him through the camp, we quickly understood why he is one of the top receiver recruits in California this year.  He has great athleticism, size and natural ability.

Here are clips of how he ran and how he performed as both a receiver and as a defensive back during one-on-one drills, plus an extensive two-part interview on football, track and his recruiting outlook.  In the final clip on his combine action video, watch him go head-to-head with Long Beach Poly star WR Terrence Austin.
