Ohio State senior CB Kendall Sheffield broke Ohio State's indoor 60-meter dash record.
Sheffield came in at No. 1 on his list of "College Football's fastest players." Coaches at Ohio State say he is just as fast as recent graduate Denzel Ward, who was clocked running a 4.32 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine this year. Sheffield started his career at Alabama but had a stint at the JUCO level before his time at Ohio State. He will likely be drafted due to his speed alone, but how high he goes will likely hinge on his production this season. Jun 15 - 12:54 PM

Ohio State CB Kendall Sheffield could have a "meteoric rise" this season, in the eyes of Mark Dulgerian.

Sheffield played at Alabama before dropping down to Blinn Community College at the JUCO level. He then committed to Ohio State and has a chance to play immediately after Marshon Lattimore and Gareon Conley jumped to the NFL. We saw both of those names emerge as legitimate first rounders last season.

Fort Bend Marshall High School HC James Williams called Ohio State five-star 2017 JUCO CB commit Kendall Sheffield "a very fast kid, very strong and very athletic."

Williams coached Sheffield at Fort Bend Marshall prior to his joining Alabama as part of the 2015 cycle. After spending a season in Tuscaloosa, he transferred down to Blinn College in the JUCO ranks this past campaign before committing to Ohio State earlier this month. Williams offered rave reviews for the 5-foot-11, 183-pounder, saying, "He’s going to work hard literally every day to compete, get better and improve. He has definite goals and he’s going to do everything he can to help the team." On the ESPN JC 50, Sheffield lands at a lofty No. 4 overall.

Ohio State received a verbal commitment from five-star 2017 JUCO CB Kendall Sheffield.

Ohio State's recruiting class continues to grow into a monstrous entity. They have a strong chance to finish either first or second in the rankings after National Signing Day, with Alabama likely the only other realistic combatant for the No. 1 slot. And hey, speaking of Bama, the 5-foot-11, 183-pound Sheffield was actually in the Tide fold for two seasons before he opted to bounce down to Blinn College this past season. Sheffield ranks as the No. 4 overall JUCO recruit for 2017 by the ESPN JC 50. He opted for OSU over Texas A&M, with USC and TCU also drawing his eye for a time.

Alabama redshirt freshman CB Kendall Sheffield is transferring to Blinn junior college, according to 247 Sports' Ryan Bartow.

Sheffield will spend two semesters down at the JUCO level and the corner will transfer back to the FBS level after that and SEC schools are open for business, according to Bartow. Sheffield was away from the Alabama program for some time was did not practice with the Crimson Tide. Nick Saban would not reveal too much to the media, and it is possible he was left in the dark on Sheffield's decision. Sheffield will have three years of eligibility once returning to the FBS level. He is a former five-star recruit.

Alabama HC Nick Saban indicated that the Crimson Tide would be "happy to have [redshirt freshman CB Kendall Sheffield] back."

Touchdown Alabama Magazine's Stephen M. Smith reported on Tuesday that Sheffield is planning on transferring. Saban wouldn't confirm that (he deemed Sheffield's status to be uncertain), but did extend a bridge to the former five-star recruit. "We'd like for him to be part of the program if that's what he chooses," Saban told reporters. While five-star transfers in-and-of themselves are a rarity, Alabama opens the door to it (not by their choosing, of course) simply because of the stacked state of their roster. Saban wouldn't put a cutoff date as to when he would no longer allow Sheffield's return. Classes at Alabama got underway on Wednesday.

Alabama redshirt freshman CB Kendall Sheffield will transfer.

This, according to Touchdown Alabama Magazine's Stephen M. Smith, who reports that Sheffield left the university on Saturday. Backing up this report, the fact that Sheffield did not practice in either session on Monday. The 5-foot-11, 183-pounder was a five-star recruit for the 2015 cycle and ranked as 247Sports' composite's No. 20 overall prospect in that class. He is the sixth Alabama player to transfer out this offseason. HC Nick Saban has addressed the recent rash of transfers, saying that there has been a cultural shift toward "immediate self-gratification." Saban, of course, plays the developmental long-game. That has worked well enough for Alabama even as players here and there trickle out of the program.

Alabama redshirt freshman CB Kendall Sheffield is still not practicing.

Apparently Sheffield's status with the team is "very much in doubt." No legitimate information or reason was given, but there is plenty of speculation about a family issue being the cause of Sheffield's absence. The former five-star recruit was expected to compete for a starting job this season. Alabama is in a bit of a pickle with their defensive backfield, but we expect a Nick Saban and Alabama's defensive front to mask the issues.

High school CB Kendall Sheffield, the No. 12 player in the ESPN 300, signed with Alabama.

The 6-foot, 181-pound Sheffield is ridiculously athletic, but he relied upon that ability to the detriment of his technique a bit in high school. He's picked the correct coaching staff to set himself straight. "Sheffield is an athletic and versatile defender at the corner position," ESPN notes in a scouting report. "Demonstrates both shut down and big-play ability. Should be an early contributor at the next level."
