Watch List DE Sherit snags UF offer

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- ESPNU 150 Watch List defensive end Jordan Sherit (Tampa, Fla./Hillsborough) visited Gainesville Saturday to take in Florida's spring game.

Sherit, who holds offers from Miami, Notre Dame, Michigan, Stanford and Auburn, said while on his visit he picked up an offer he had been waiting for.

"I really enjoyed the visit and loved the atmosphere," Sherit said. "Leaving Gainesville this time with an offer makes it that much better. But since my parents weren't with me this time, I want to come back either later in the spring or early summer with my family."

Sherit (6-foot-3, 230 pounds) had a chance to speak with Florida head coach Will Muschamp about why Florida hadn't offered to this point.

"I spoke to Coach Muschamp a couple of times," Sherit said. "He said he was looking at the wrong tape and he just saw the new one this week. He also said he spoke to a couple high school coaches in my area and asked what type of player I was. Overall he said he likes my work ethic and determination after talking with my coach and wants to get me and my parents back up there as soon as possible."

Sherit has yet to name a list of top schools but said Florida would be near the top when he does begin to narrow his list.
