Tigers in good shape with Shelley

Slick Shelley is one of LSU's top receiver targets for the 2005 signing class and the Tigers are sitting in good shape with the Fort Smith (Ark.) Southside wideout.

"When you say the name LSU everybody knows who you are talking about," Shelley told Tiger Rag. "That is a good place to play receiver. They pass a lot and I like that. They are at the top of my list right now."

Shelley, a 6-4, 180-pounder with 4.6-speed, has written offers from the Tigers, Arkansas, Tennessee, Oklahoma State, Tulsa and Nebraska. Those are the schools he is seriously considering but Florida is making a late push so the Gators could soon crack his list of top choices.

"The schools I have offers from pretty much call every week along with Florida," he said. "I am going to take my visits in December and January and then narrow it down."
