Sherrill commits; no Kareem Martin decision yet

Lake Norman offensive tackle Kane Sherrill has committed to Wofford, picking the Terriers over Western Carolina and Catawba. Sherrill, an Observer all-Piedmont selection, graded at 92 percent in his blocking in 2009, while recording 35 knockdown blocks.

A Shrine Bowl choice, he is 6-foot-3 and 275 pounds and has a 4.0 GPA. He’s a three-year varsity starter at OT. Who can bench-press 375 pounds. But his most remarkable stat is that he didn’t allow a sack in that three-year career, covering 622 passing plays.

*Also, Roanoke Rapids’ Kareem Martin finished his weekend visit to North Carolina without making a decision. Martin, a 6-foot-6, 240-pound DE, had an excellent Shrine Bowl, a game that pushed him up to No.5 on The Observer’s NC Top 25 Prospects list. He is expected to choose within the next week between Virginia Tech, Duke and the Tar Heels.
