The Opening: Previewing Kendall Sheffield

Kendall Sheffield is profiling each member from the Midlands Region heading to The Opening next week at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, and in this installment we look at uncommitted five-star cornerback Kendall Sheffield.

Kendall Sheffield

7v7 Team: Fly Rush
Position: CB
HT: 5'11 | WT: 180
Fort Bend Marshall (Texas)

Recruiting: One of the top uncommitted players in the country. Considering programs such as Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, LSU, Alabama, Ohio State, USC, UCLA, Oklahoma State and Florida State.

Scouting Report: Sheffield is a blistering fast prospect, posting an elite laser-time of 4.36 in the 40-yard dash. He is the type of corner who has the size and the skill set to develop in to a guy you can put out on the island and play one-on-one against the other team's most dangerous weapon at receiver. He is not the most physical player on the defense, but has quickness in and out of his breaks and can quickly get in position to stop plays in the flats.

At Stake: He is rated as a Top Ten prospect overall, so he will be looking to cement a post on that prestigious list. He is also in the race for the top cornerback spot and the top spot in the region. Should test well and be in Sparq hunt as one of the top guys at his position. Recommended Stories
