"I've been talking with Coach Yarner and Coach Broussard and I'm taking a visit there next Saturday. They're having another Junior Day and I'm looking forward to being there."
Shepherd has a strong connection with one of the coaches at Colorado giving the Buffs a real shot here.
"Anthony Tucker is an assistant there and I've known him since I was a freshman," Shepherd said. "He had a very big impact on me as a player and as a person. He got my priorities in order and is just a great man.
"He sat me down when I was a freshman and told me he saw a Div I player in me. It took a while but I started to see that person in me as well. Nebraska is also sending me letters and I just got a camp invite from Notre Dame. So things are good now and I'm enjoying the process."
