6-6 Shamiek Sheppard of Fishburne Military Academy, VA made an official visit to USC from Wednesday thru this morning. He was on hand to watch the Gamecocks play Auburn Wednesday night.
Fishburne coach Ed Huckaby Jr. said Friday afternoon to his knowledge Sheppard has not made a decision. He is expected back on campus around 4:00 PM today.
“He has Big 12 offers and another SEC offer,” Huckaby Jr. said without elaborating.
Sheppard signed with Towson out of high school in New York and after getting a late qualifying test score decided to go to a post-graduate school to enhance his college status. His coach says he’s done just that.
“He’s a highly intelligent player,” Huckaby Jr. said. “His offense comes from anywhere, insider and outside. And he has excellent ball skills.”
Sheppard is averaging over 17 points and 11 rebounds per game this season and is coming off back to back 30 point performances.
