    He's listed 6'5" 240-ish, 4.7-4.8. He's a little light for the strong side, but about right for Buck. Hope he's fast enough to play there.

    Just watched his video for the first time, too. Let's see: Stronger and quicker than those who were trying to block him, goes full speed, seems to have a good feel for the game ... Had offers from many of the top programs, seems to have a good head on his shoulders ... yes, that will work.

    This really sounds about right. It is sort of hard to account for linebackers right bow because we moving toward a hybrid system were ends and outside linebackers are interchangeable. Between returnees , incoming freshman, and committed 2013 prospects, I see seve guys who could move between end and outside linebacker (Powell, McCray, Johnson, Fowler, McCallister, Cox, Sherit). That gives us a great degree of flexibility scheme-wise and recruiting-wise.

    Happy to have both Sherit and Riles. Excellent prospects and we definitely needed to build DE depth.

    I agree. Looks extremely athletic and knack for knowing where the ball is at all times. An important asset if he will be playing in space. But I don't know if he will be playing buck. He's 240 now with a full year till he gets on campus. He might add a few pounds. And then under dillman his freshman year, he can really explode weight wise. If he ends up in the 260-275 range at SSDE and he keeps that athleticism, look out

    Fowler was 261lbs before he even signing a LOI, and he'll play Buck(RoPo near 255lbs), I don't think Sherit would have issues if that's where they decide to play him, at 240ish pounds. I think he might thrive at the Buck.

    The question will be whether he can handle the coverage responsibilities. That seems to be the direction they want to take that moveable weakside end: someone who can put a hand down in various positions (outside the tight end, outside the tackle, inside the tackle), rush from a two-point stance either from the edge or middle, and be able to drop into the middle zone or turn and run with a tight end or back. Now, very few are going to be adept at all of those things, but the more the better. Sherit appears to have the pass rushing skills. I don't know enough about his coverage abilities to say whether that is a strength or not.

    Buck is about speed, not size. Fowler reportedly ran a 4.53 40. Sherit is not that fast. He may play Buck anyway because of his agility and overall athleticism.

    How would this situation apply to the doctors that see him and do the operation? I'm sure his own doctors would do fine, but would a Florida recommended MD be warranted here if not an NCAA violation....

    I believe it's been done before and it's not like people all over the state of Florida and beyond come to UF for special medical services. As long as our doc is in his network, it's okay. The docs at UF will be doing some of the followup anyway. Might as well have them do the original surgery.
