CB With Upside

Cornerback Sheldrick Redwine doesn't get the pub like some but he's a guy with a ton of upside. He's a big and long defensive back from Miami Killian.

You may not know the name of Sheldrick Redwine right now but you soon will. He’s a teammate of the newest Miami Hurricane commitment, Jaqaun Johnson. The two star for Miami Killian’s secondary, Johnson at safety and Redwine at cornerback.

”Sheldrick has a bunch of strengths as a defensive back,” said Corey Johnson, Killian’s coach. He’s 6-foot-1 and has length. His wing span is something stupid. And his vertical [jump] is 42-inches. This is the type of kid that has a chance to really blossom after he gets to college. Sheldrick’s ceiling is very, very high.”

Redwine currently holds some pretty significant scholarship offers from programs like Louisville, South Florida, West Virginia, Arkansas, Kentucky, Pitt, UCF and others.

”When it’s all said and done he could have many more,” Johnson said. “Miami, Florida and FSU are really the only ones that have not offered. I know schools like Miami could in the end, especially once they see his senior film and he has a good year.

Redwine, a three-star and the No. 100 cornerback in the nation in the current Scout rankings, is starting to come out of his shell.

”He is and he’s starting to open up more,” Johnson said. “He’s very quiet but learning how to talk a little trash and say some things back to the other guy.”
