Class of 2025 standout receiver Shamar Berryhill, a part of Sabino’s 3A state championship team who has received a scholarship offer from Arizona, and his younger brother Romeo will play at a Phoenix-area high school next fall because the family is moving up the interstate.
Their father Stanley Berryhill, Jr., announced on social media this afternoon that his family is moving to Phoenix. He later confirmed the move to AllSportsTucson.com.
It is undetermined what school Shamar and Romeo Berryhill will transfer to in the fall. The AIA limits football transfers to eligibility after the fifth game of the season, although the Berryhills can submit an appeal to the executive board.
Shamar — rated a 3-star prospect by 247Sports — was the top target this season of prolific-passing quarterback Cameron Hackworth, who has exhausted his high school eligibility.
The 6-foot-2 and 200-pound prospect also played linebacker for the Sabercats, who earned their first state title since 1998 with last month’s victory over Paradise Honors.
He finished with 75 receptions for 1,392 yards and 19 touchdowns.
He also tallied 89 tackles and two interceptions.
Romeo Berryhill completed his freshman season with Sabino and finished with 31 tackles and an interception as a defensive back.
Their oldest brother Stanley Berryhill III is a former Arizona receiver who went on to play in the NFL with the Detroit Lions.
The next-oldest brother Savaughn Berryhill completed his senior season with the Sabercats this year.
Savaughn had 49 receptions for 619 yards and five touchdowns this season. He amassed 219 catches for 1,874 yards with 18 touchdowns in his career.
The father, Stanley Berryhill Jr., is a former football and track and field standout at Cholla High School.
