Sheridan is a good sized right tackle for Argyle. Good-sized is a weird term because most linemen nowadays are 6’6″ at least and that’s not what Sheridan is. He’s a couple of inches smaller, but I don’t think that’s at all a detriment. The first thing that pops for me is how Sheridan uses his hands really well, that’s pretty advanced I think and he’s definitely pretty mobile and he definitely plays with an edge and that’s something that usually shows up on tape. Sometimes how tall a guy is or how much a player weighs coming out of high school can determine the ranking of a player. Measurables can be important and maybe that’s why Sheridan isn’t a 4-star guy (not that I know if he’s close) because he doesn’t have measurables. At some point, you’d rather have a guy that plays tough, has some semblance of how important his hands and leverage is, and someone that does a really nice job of driving opposing defenders than one that’s just big.
Texas Tech has a small class and I don’t know that I expect the class to be really big because of Matt Wells affinity for transfers in addition to the high school commits. Lots of recruiting services base the rank of the class on the quality and quantity through a complicated equation. I won’t get too hung up on class rankings because it doesn’t benefit Texas Tech at all, sort of thinking that the we’ll have to wait until the season ends to truly judge a team and a class.
