LEWES, DELAWARE -- Will Sheridan, a 6-8, 235-pound power from from the Sanford School in Hockessin, Delaware, is one of the top junior big men in the country.
Last night at the Slam Dunk to the Beach, Sheridan had his way inside against a smaller Charlestown squad. He shot a sharp eight of 11 from the floor, scored 20 points and cleaned the glass to the tune of 15 rebounds.
Not bad for a day's work, but even he could not prevent the collapse that cost the Warriors the game. At the Slam Dunk to the Beach, Sheridan provided us Duke, Maryland, Seton Hall, and Villanova as his top four schools.
In addition to his top four, he is also considering Michigan, Virginia, Wake Forest, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
Sheridan cautioned this is an early list and is subject to change over the coming months. Sheridan has had the opportunity to take unofficial visits to Rutgers, Seton Hall, and Villanova. As a sophomore last season, he averaged 19 points, 12 rebounds, and five blocks per game. He has upped those averages this year to 20 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks per contest this year as a junior.
Sheridan said: “I have over a 3.0 GPA and have scored a 1000 on the SAT,” he said.
IR/Rivalshoops.com has gotten to see Sheridan play quite a bit over the past two years with Jimmy Salmon’s T5T program. Sheridan possesses a strong frame, excellent footwork, and a good set of low post kills that makes him one of the more converted players in the class of 2003.
