Sheffield listed North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, Louisville, Virginia Tech and Arkansas as his final choices.

Sheffield, who's 5-10 and 170 pounds, is the No. 10-ranked player in Tennessee, according to 247Sports, and the No. 37 wide receiver in the nation. His junior season, Sheffield caught 107 passes for 1,746 yards and 15 touchdowns.
