Kenton (Ohio) High School post player Garrick Sherman is putting up impressive numbers during his sophomore season, and schools in the Midwest are beginning to take notice.
Averaging 18.5 points, 16.5 rebounds and 6.3 blocks per game for his 6-3 club, Sherman has heard from both Michigan and Notre Dame recently.
"Michigan and Notre Dame said they want me to come to a game this winter," said Sherman. "I've also been hearing from Dayton and Miami-Ohio."
At 6-foot-9, 220-pounds, Sherman is a skilled ball handler and scorer around the basket, but does need to extend his range and develop physically to be a high-major player.
"We're getting calls from Big ten schools, but we're not sure how serious the interest is at this point," said Kenton head coach Terry Rowe. "He has put up some good stats in a competitive league this year.
"He handles and passes the ball well. We even use him to bring the ball up the court in our press breaker. He is also very fluid around the basket. He has great post moves and can finish with either hand.
"Eventually, I think he will be able to score out to 15 to 17 feet. To play at a high level, he needs to get stronger physically and mentally."
