Well, just found out there’s a 2016 PG Jordan Sheppard at Gaston College Prep in Roanoke Rapids as well!

Anyway, in looking over Asheville Christian’s roster, Jordan Shepherd is listed as 6-2. According to the Asheville Citizen-Times, he averaged 22.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game in 2014-15. In addition, he was the Carolinas Athletic Association Player of the Year.

Niner Report has a new article about Shepherd titled “Shepherd Interested in What Price Offers”

I don’t have a subscription so I can’t read it, but thought those here that do might want to know if they didn’t already.

I saw the kid play. Really, really good handle and good quickness.

I’d like to get this kid

not to get off topic but i saw the name reaekwon long on there. i know a few years back people thought he would be a five star player and it seemed that he just plummeted. might not be a bad player to go after, although i doubt he shoots threes.

I think one of those Western Kentucky’s should be a Western Carolina, as he mentions he visited there unofficially later in the article.

Bump, he’s now a transfer from OU that we’ve been in contact with. Sit 1 and play 2.

Interesting, looks like he was recruited by mostly lower-mid-majors and Oklahoma. Was expecting to see UVA on the list back then, hoping Sanchez already recruited him, but doesn’t look like it.

Good news:

I think a transfer PG to sit and then play fills a big gap for us to have some experience at PG once JD leaves.

He has some other visits as well:

looks like a solid prospect. played some for a good oklahoma team as a freshman. i feel like under price, we would not have had a kid like this visiting us(maybe i am talking out of my butt though). could practice for a year and learn and we would have him and robb next season. i would still prefer lavar batts though.
