The Cardinal Countdown...98 days till kickoff

#98 Sheldon Rankins

7961876_medium

Class: Sophomore

Ht/Wt: 6-2/287

Position: Defensive Tackle

Hometown: Covington, GA

Twitter: None

Louisville’s Take: Still waiting….Somebody get me Air Louie on the phone

Thoughts: Sheldon got some decent PT for a freshmen last year, filling in where needed along the line in nine different games. Sheldon actually got the start in two games as well, against Missouri State and alongside Noah and his animals against Southern Miss. Sheldon’s nine tackles may not blow your mind, but remember that this was a kid coming straight out of high school playing D-I ball fighting for a spot. He also had a nice little sack in the Sugar Bowl and hopes to keep the momentum rolling. He’ll get better this year as long as he can avoid the injures. Sheldon was held out of the spring game due to injury along with what felt like the entire defensive line. No word on his progress, but I think he’ll be back on the field before the season kicks off.

Sweet Tweet:

No Twitter account for Mr. Rankins, that I could locate, so no "Sweet Tweet" to post either. Instead, I’ll leave you with this…
