Kendall Sheffield transferred from Alabama in August, but seems interested in heading back to the SEC.
The former 5-star recruit, who now plays at Blinn Community College (Brenham, Texas), has shown interest in Texas A&M as he searches for his next stop.
Sheffield has planned an unofficial visit with his family to College Station for the Nov. 24 LSU game, and will return to Texas A&M for an official visit from Dec. 9-11, according to 247Sports’ Taylor Hamm, who cites a source.
The ex-Alabama defensive back redshirted his freshman season after coming to Alabama ranked as the nation’s No. 20 overall player and the No. 4 cornerback in the nation, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
ESPN’s Alex Scarbrough broke the news of Sheffield’s transfer in August, but he did write that Sheffield’s release would not allow him to play for another SEC school.
Sheffield grew up in Missouri City, Texas, but if the transfer stipulations still hold true, he would not be allowed to transfer to the Aggies.
Former Alabama defensive back Maurice Smith, now at Georgia, faced similar circumstances but successfully fought for his transfer to the Bulldogs. The only difference is that Smith transferred as a graduate, and had just one year of eligibility remaining.
Despite Scarbrough’s reports, 100 percent of recruiting analysts have Sheffield signing with the Aggies, according to 247Sports’ Crystal Ball predictions.
