Philadelphia junior OL drawing interest

Philadelphia (Pa.) George Washington defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd is only a junior but has already put together an impressive resume.

At 6-foot-2 and 297-pounds, Floyd already has a sturdy build and has a good burst coming off the line. He could end up playing on both sides of the ball at the college level. For now he is content with going about his business as a high school football player.

"We're doing great," Floyd said of his George Washington squad. "We just won the Public League title and we won the City League title last week against LaSalle. We've got Liberty in the first round of the state playoffs now.

"For most of the season I've been playing one-way, on offense. I did good there. Then for the city title and the league championship I started playing both ways. I did great and made big plays on both sides of the ball. I felt like a real threat."

In the Public League title game, Floyd recorded four tackles for loss and batted down a pass.

While it's still very early, he has already impressed several schools.

"I've heard from Pitt, Penn (State), Boston (College), Miami, Oklahoma, Oregon and Wisconsin," he said. "I haven't been to any games or taken any visits. I've just been focusing on my season. I don't have any favorites right now."

Floyd said he will not take any unofficial visits until at least January.
