One of the top prospects in the Class of 2020, linebacker Mekhail Sherman is weighing offers from just about every top college in the country. But if there’s anyone who can provide details on where he might go, it’s Sherman’s sister.
Speaking to 247Sports, Raisa Sherman, Mekhail’s older sister, had positive things to say about several top programs that had made offers to her five-star brother. But it was the University of Georgia that seemed to really stand out to her.
Raisa revealed that the Georgia coaches seemed to share her family’s values, and offered terrific hospitality. She made it clear that the school made a very good impression to her and Mekhail.
“…These coaches approached us with listen this is who I am, this is my family, these are our values, this is why we want your brother to play at this school. It was different than a lot of coaches that have said MJ is a great guy, he can do a great job for us, we’re very impressed but I’m like I need more… It wasn’t just everything football, it wasn’t everything business, it was I understand you’re giving this young man to us and I want you to trust us. If you can do that for me that’s great.
Mekhail Sherman is the No. 13 overall prospect in the country, the No. 2 outside linebacker prospect in the country, and the No. 1 prospect from the District of Columbia, per 247Sports.
Despite the rave reviews from Raisa Sherman though, the Bulldogs are not quite favored to secure Mekhail’s services just yet.
247Sports’ Crystal Ball Predictions currently have Ohio State picked to land his commitment, with a 66-percent of the predictions giving the Buckeyes the best chance of landing him.
Raisa also revealed that she will soon be meeting with Ohio State head coach Ryan Day, which could further influence the eventual decision.
