Another standout at the UCLA Big Man camp was Sean Sheller (6-5, 265, 5.0) from Walnut, Calif. Sheller is really coming into his own as a football player and possesses a high ceiling. He was selected all-area as a junior, his first season on varsity.
An all-around good athlete, Sheller plays center on Walnut's basketball team and was all-league in that sport, too.
It was clear on Sunday that Sheller has the goods to be an outstanding player on the D-I level.
Sheller camped at USC the last couple of years and he has heard from the Trojans. He has also heard from Georgia Tech, Fresno State, Oregon State and Washington.
UCLA may have the decided edge in Sheller's recruitment.
"I just loved being at UCLA and being coached by Coach (Tom) Cable," Sheller said. "He's an awesome coach."
"It was the first time I was able to show my skills to UCLA," Sheller said. "I feel I did a pretty good job, but I think I could have done better on the one-on-ones."
"It was a good camp and I learned a lot."
What is Sheller looking for in a school?
"I just want to see where I fit in," Sheller said. "I want to play for a school that fits my playing style and where I get along with the players and coaches."
Walnut coach Jerry Person said the following about his talented offensive lineman in an earlier interview
"Sean plays tackle for us but he has the feet to play guard," Person said. "He moves laterally really well and pulls and gets through the hole and doesn't clog it up."
"Sean is a terrific run blocker and does a fine job on pass blocking," Person said. "He needs to work on technique but he has all the goods to be a great player."
"I told Sean a year or two ago that if he does the right things that he would have an opportunity to get a D-I scholarship," Person said. "He's done the work and now that he sees the light due to letters from UCLA and USC."
"The good thing about Sean is he doesn't think he has it made," Person said. "He thinks he has to work harder."
"Sean wants to do the work," Person said. "He understands that you have to work hard to get where you want to go."
