Name: T.J. Sheffield
Hometown: Thompsons Station, Tennessee - Independence High School
Position & Size: Wide Reciever, 5’10” 170 Pounds
Offers: Arkansas, Georgia, Georgia Tech, IU, Kentucky, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Penn State, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Tennessee
Impact: Currently, I think Sheffield might be a little too lean to make an immediate impact for us. But, he is cut from the same mold as Rondale Moore, an All American in this offense.
We recruited Sheffield hard, if you remember correctly, we were all expecting a verbal from him early in the summer, but he gave his verbal to Notre Dame first. Then, after some weird events, Notre Dame essentially pulled his scholarship offer.
Then a few days later, after re-opening his recruitment, he gave us his verbal, where it should have been all along. God had a plan! Sheffield will get a chance for a redemption game in a couple years vs Notre Dame. Until then, enjoy a redshirt year to get bigger, faster and stronger.
