2015 cornerback decommits but maintains interest in WVU

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Miami cornerback Sheldrick Redwine, committed to West Virginia for the past two months, announced Wednesday he was re-opening his recruitment.

WVSports.com of the Rivals network reported the three-star cornerback’s decommitment, which comes in the wake of major programs showing a stronger interest. Redwine stressed, however, that he is still considering the Mountaineers, whose 2015 class now stands at 10 commitments.

“WVU remains heavily involved, and Redwine still plans to take an official visit to Morgantown,” said Rivals writer Keenan Cummings.

When the 6-foot-2 Redwine committed to West Virginia in early March he held offers from Cincinnati, Marshall, UAB, Temple, Appalachian State, Charlotte and Western Michigan. He has since added offers from Pitt and UCF, while SEC programs are stepping up their pursuit.

“He’s a legitimately good player,” Cummings said. “He’s starting to blow up and he’s getting a lot of attention. More schools are starting to see his film and they’re impressed, because he’s a big, talented corner.

“LSU, Ole Miss and other SEC schools are on him and have told them they’re going to offer.”
