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

Per Verbal Commits, offered by Boston U.

Raekwon Long

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.

clt says Raekwon is a renowned chef.

Six, if Western Kentucky is counted just once.

hard to know what to believe out of a guy who can’t count! :o

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

clt says he will end up at UNCCC- CH then

Pretty sure you’re correct. I’ve heard they are on his list

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.

Confirmed it will be an official visit for him

He’ll also visit University of San Diego.
