WCU is Lake Norman OT Kane Sherrill's first offer

Kane Sherrill, Lake Norman’s remarkably effective left OT, has received his first offer, from Western Carolina. Sherrill, variously listed as 6-foot-3 or 6-2 (and 275 pounds) is another classic example of a kid with good ability, technique and football instincts who likely won’t play at a BCS school because of a lack of height.

Never mind that, though; Sherrill is having another fine season. He has graded out at 90 percent efficiency with 25 knockdown blocks. The most mind-boggling stat, though, is that he has not allowed a sack in three seasons as a starting OT.

Lower division schools are interested, and in a big way. Sherrill is visiting Elon this weekend, and has already been to Western, The Citadel, Gardner-Webb and Catawba.
