ScoutTV: Richard Sherman (WR)

Strength in Southern California is a hallmark of top Cardinal recruiting classes. Stanford started with a San Diego commitment this past weekend and hope to soon land Los Angeles athlete Richard Sherman. The 6'2" receiver/cornerback from Compton (Calif.) is a big time playmaker, as seen in this video from his senior season at Dominguez High School.

Here's video of Richard Sherman, a 6-foot-2, 178-pound receiver from Dominguez High School in Compton, Calif.  It's a sampling of his best plays to date from the 2005 season, one that shows off Sherman's athleticism and big-play capability.

Sherman doesn't have a ton of catches to his credit this season in Dominguez' run-oriented offense, but he's made the most of his opportunities.  His 34.3 yards-per-catch average is astounding, as well as the fact that 10 of his 18 catches have reached paydirt.  He also has a long play of 91 yards, which shows he has the speed to out-distance himself from defenders.

The SoCal standout is one of Stanford's top wide receiver/athlete recruits in the 2006 class, with an official visit scheduled to The Farm the first weekend of December.
