One day, Tee Shepard will be able to tell his grandchildren about all of the places … ahem … he planned to play football.
His most recent move was on national signing day–from Mississippi State to *gasp* … Ole Miss. He had only been on board with the Bulldogs for about three days.
Shepard (6-1, 200), who signed with Notre Dame after finishing his high school career in California, eventually left the Fighting Irish. He wanted to transfer closer to home and Fresno State seemed like the perfect place. Then he seemed to be heading to Oklahoma. But that never happened and he went the junior college route and eventually ended up at Holmes Community College in Mississippi. His top 100 national ranking from high school seems all but forgotten, but his reputation as a hard-hitting cornerback (yes cornerback) remains.
He is a huge pickup for the Rebels. And rest easy, fans, he has signed his letter of intent.
