Per 247sports, Sheron is the 43rd ranked pro-style quarterback in the nation for 2021 and is rated as the 11th best prospect from Kentucky.
As a junior last season, Sheron led Somerset High School to the program’s first state championship after a stellar season that saw him throw for 3,200 yards, run for 941 and total a remarkable 36 touchdowns.
Upon arrival in Lexington in 2021, Sheron will look to compete in a quarterback room that will likely see Auburn transfer Joey Gatewood and home town star Beau Allen locked in a battle for the starting job.
Early on, Kentucky has added four commits to its 2021 class. The group ranks 26th nationally and seventh in the SEC per 247.
