Shamiek Sheppard, James Thompson updates

Updates on South Carolina basketball signee James Thompson and freshman Shamiek Sheppard.

Frank Martin on Thursday had nothing to add about the status of freshman signee James Thompson, who was arrested earlier this month for an alleged assault of his girlfriend.

The staff is waiting for the legal process to be resolved before deciding if Thompson will come to school.

Martin also talked about another freshman, Shamiek Sheppard, a 6-foot-6 guard/forward from Brooklyn, who is already on campus.

“Shamiek Sheppard tweaked a knee,” Martin said. “We’ve got to get that evaluated and see what happens. Mark Rodger, our trainer, is dealing with that as we speak. We’ll find out.”

Martin spoke with the media Thursday about the upcoming trip to Europe with Ty Johnson and Sindarius Thornwell for the Four Nations Cup this summer.
