40 time: 4.75
From: Compton, California
High School: Dominguez
The Trojans are also his Mother's favorite. He has written offers from all those schools, minus 'SC, plus San Diego State.
Michael was unblockable at the camp no matter what offensive lineman he was up against. He used his quickness to blow right around his opponents or vast lower-body strength to bull rush them. Shelton is still at his basketball weight right now (where he averaged a double-double last year) so he only came in at 220 pounds when the 'SC coaches sized him up. He does not plan on playing basketball in college.
He has Grandparents and Cousins that live in Tucson and speaks to us about his interest in the UA. "I have been to Arizona for a couple of basketball tournaments and it is hot out there, but I like it. The coaches seem real cool."
Michael is being recruited by Coaches (Mike) Stoops and Tui.
Shelton is being recruited as a defensive end and that is where he prefers to play. He does see some spot-duty at tight end and fullback for Dominguez.
We get an idea of how he views his skills. "I have speed, quickness, agility, and I work very hard. I watch a lot of film and am good at preparing myself."
Michael carries a 2.9 core GPA and is taking his SAT in September. He would like to major in something to do with Science.
