Shepard, who is being recruited as a receiver for the Sooners, caught 56 balls for 1,015 yards and 18 touchdowns. He helped Heritage Hall finish 15-0 and as Class 3A state champion.

Shepard received the offer from the Sooners earlier this month, on his birthday.

“I went to Oklahoma State, and I talked to some other coaches, and I realized what I wanted,” he said. “I talked about it with my mom and my family in the last couple of days, and they’re all supportive of the decision. It’s close to home, so they can still attend the games. My older sister is at OU, so she’s really happy about it.”

Shepard had seven offers, including Oklahoma State, Notre Dame and Clemson.

Shepard was a threat at quarterback, running back, wide receiver, defensive back and as a kick returner last season.

Shepard is No. 4 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30 list of the top recruits for 2012.
