Draft Notes

Sheppard was an unheralded prospect throughout much of his career but has been flying up draft boards during the pre-draft process and could even land in the first round. He was one of the standout performers at the draft combine scrimmages in May, showing off his shooting touch, all around game and infectious energy.

He’s got good size at 6-6 and solid athleticism. He’s a heady player who makes the right reads and operates well within the flow of the game. Should be able to come in and fill a role early in his career.

Is very efficient on the offensive end and is a high level 3pt shooter, hitting over 41% as a senior.

Isn’t a great FT shooter.
