Hillsborough’s Sherit lands first SEC offer: Auburn

Hillsborough junior defensive end Jordan Sherit earned his fifth Division I scholarship offer and his first from the Southeastern Conference when Auburn University made him a pitch Monday, Terriers head coach Earl Garcia said.
The Tigers follow Purdue, Duke, Miami and the University of South Florida who have made Sherit offers. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Sherit is in Hillsborough’s International Baccalaureate program and is arguably one of the most improved players in the county this season—and one of the most domianant at his position.
Entering the Teerriers’ game against King on Friday, he led the team in tackles (70) and sacks (6.5), has recovered two fumbles and knocked down three passes. He also plays tight end for Hillsborough and had a 25-yard touchdown reception Friday and is the squad’s long snapper on special teams.
