Grant Sherfield

UCLA, Others Pursuing 2019 Shooting Guard

Apr. 28 -- The 2019, four-star combo guard, Grant Sherfield, had an impressive showing at the adidas Gauntlet event in Fort Worth, and he continues to be tracked closely by numerous high level college programs, including UCLA...

One of the most productive guards in the class of 2019 is Grant Sherfield. Sherfield has a mature game, and is a pure scorer who is also showing an improved ability to run the point. With that, numerous high-level programs are continuing to make him a top priority on the recruiting trail.

"The year went pretty well for me," said Sherfield of his game. "I think I am learning how to be more of a complete player both on defense and offense."

When it comes to his recruitment, Sherfield, currently ranked the No. 40 prospect in the nation for the national class of 2019, says some of the top programs in the country remain in the mix.

"UCLA has been on me really hard, Oklahoma State, Texas, Kansas, pretty much the whole Big XII, Mississippi State, and a few other schools," noted Sherfield.

In his time at UCLA, head coach Steve Alford has shown a willingness to have a perimeter-driven attack, and the Bruins are hoping Sherfield can come in and be a highly productive threat from the outside.

"They say they really like my game and how I score as well as dish the ball," said Sherfield of the Bruins. "They say they want a guard in my class who come in and play right away and have a big impact, and they think I can be that guy."

In-state, Shaka Smart and Texas are also working hard to keep Sherfield close to home.

"I’m from Texas so staying close to home would be great," said Sherfield of the Longhorns. "I am close to my family so that is a major plus. Also the Big XII is a great conference to play in."

While Sherfield currently lives in Texas, he grew up in the state of Kansas. Hearing from the Jayhawks is a dream come true for him.

"It is great to hear from Kansas," noted Sherfield. "I was born and raised in Kansas and it is one of the best schools in the country, so it is an honor to hear from them."

For now Sherfield is focused on improving as a player, but he admits to also keeping a close eye on his recruitment.
