Colorado will be home for Woodson's Sherrard Harrington
H.D. Woodson senior defensive back Sherrard Harrington committed to Colorado while on a visit to the Boulder campus last weekend.
The 6-foot, 165-pound Harrington also had offers from Iowa, Duke, Ohio and Marshall. He actually had planned to take an official visit to Iowa last weekend, but switched his plans and headed to Colorado, according to Woodson assistant Wayne Johnson.
Johnson said Harrington was most impressed with the fact that Colorado's entire coaching staff, led by new head coach Jon Embree, has NFL experience. In particular, Johnson said Harrington was wowed by Colorado defensive coordinator and secondary coach Greg Brown, who has 15 years of NFL experience.
"When you're thinking about the next level," Johnson said, "these are the guys you want to be around."
Harrington is the fourth Woodson senior to commit to sign with a Division I program next month. Defensive back Adeboye Aromire and tight end-linebacker Darius Redman have pledged to Virginia Tech, while offensive lineman Ramsey Henderson will head to Norfolk State.
In addition, defensive lineman Devon Scruggs will go to Bowie State, while Nate Robinson, will head to a junior college - either, Butler (Kan.) JC, or College of DuPage (Ill.), which is where his older brothers Trulon Henry (now a junior at Illinois) and John Robinson have gone.
