Temple Forward Chooses IPZ for Representation

WARREN, NJ, July 3, 2017 – Ruth Sherrill, a staple in the Temple University Owls’ starting lineup for the 2016-2017 season, has signed with IPZ, the company announced today.

The six-foot Alexandria, VA native launched her collegiate career at Hofstra University. She played two seasons with the Pride and in her sophomore campaign, the forward averaged 5.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.

Sherrill transferred to Temple University and made her debut with the Owls in 2015. As a senior in the 2016-2017 season, Sherrill led Temple to a 24-8 record and its first NCAA Tournament appearance since the 2010-2011 season. On nine separate occasions, Sherrill secured double-digit rebounds; her finest performance coming against Houston on January 18 when she brought down a career-high 19 boards. She finished the season averaging 4.4 points and 6.6 rebounds per contest.

“I have dreamed about becoming a professional basketball player since I was a young girl,” said Sherrill. One of the most important decisions you make as a professional athlete is choosing your representation. I chose IPZ because I wanted an agency that was knowledgeable, trustworthy, experienced and accessible.  I immediately felt they were committed to my goals as a player. I can’t wait to begin this new and exciting journey with them by my side!”

“Ruth is the type of player that will excel in whatever role she is given,” said Shawn Farmer, IPZ’s managing director of basketball. “You need her to score? Consider it done. You need her to grab 10-plus rebounds? No problem. She’s the epitome of a team player.”
