About Sharrif Floyd

Sharrif Floyd (born May 28, 1992) is an American football defensive tackle. He currently attends the University of Florida in his junior year. Floyd attended George Washington High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he totaled over 50 tackles, two sacks and seven tackles for losses during his junior season despite being bothered by an ACL tear for part of the season. He received an invitation to the annual U.S. Army All-American Combine in January 2009, but initially could not afford the travel costs to San Antonio, Texas. With help from special-education students, Floyd baked brownies and sold them at school for weeks to raise the money. He was able to make the trip and earned First-Team All-Combine honors. After his senior season at Washington, he was named High School All-American by USA Today, Parade, and EA Sports. Regarded as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Floyd was listed as the No. 1 defensive tackle prospect in the class of 2010.
