**ALSO MAKE SURE TO CHECK SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN'S STORY FEATURING SHELDRICK REDWINE**
I had a chance to catch up with Sheldrick Redwine, the 6-1, 193-pound cornerback coming out of Miami Killian that will be enrolling at UM – which he has previously called his “dream school” – for the start of the Summer A session on Monday and moving in to campus on Sunday.
The offseason has not slowed Redwine down. He’s still working as if it’s South Dade week for the Killian Cougars.
“I’ve been doing two-a-days with my teammates,” says Redwine, the physical corner who also possesses the quickness of the feet and hips to keep up with speedy receivers. “We go to a gym, we get worked out by a trainer. Then we go [back home], eat and do field workouts. Then after that we’ll do lighter drills.”

With high school teammate Jaquan Johnson already at UM since the spring, Redwine says he’s also been in contact with another pair of Dade County defensive backs – senior Deon Bush (Columbus) and junior Artie Burns (Northwestern).
“They’re just telling me how it is and what to expect from the DBs. Just to come in confident,” Redwine says. “[Johnson] says he likes it, he’s coming along. He’s learning the playbook and the game speed is starting to slow down for him.”
Redwine is coming in with the mindset that he wants to take his time learning during the summer but then seriously compete for playing time in the fall.
With UM’s deep, talented and experienced secondary, however, a redshirt could be a possibility.
Redwine says if that happens “I’ll just take it in stride, just practice hard every day, try to get better and earn my spot.”
Redwine was a Louisville commit very late in the recruiting process before announcing he was headed to Coral Gables instead with a Signing Day hat trick.
He let Louisville know what his move would be the day before.
“They were cool with it,” Redwine says of Louisville’s response.
Cane coaches’ reaction?
“They reacted great. They said they couldn’t wait. They were happy they could get me to flip.”
The dynamic Redwine finished his senior season with five interceptions — two returned for touchdowns — three forced fumbles, 33 tackles and four blocked kicks.
