That was three days ago when we spoke to Sheppard so we decided to see if he has finally put an end to the recruiting process.
"I still haven't really decided what I'm going to do," Sheppard said Sunday evening. "It could be any day though."
Sheppard said he likes what both schools have to offer and they share a common ground that he really likes.
"I really like the relationship that I have with the linebackers coach, coach (Bradley Dale) Peveto," he said. "I will also have a good chance to play early at LSU.
"With Tennessee it's the same thing. I really like the fact that coach Chavis is the linebackers coach and the defensive coordinator. They also offer a good opportunity for early playing time."
What is going to be the deciding factor in Sheppard's decision?
"Whichever position coach and school I feel the most comfortable at," he said.
Sheppard said he will fax his national letter of intent on Wednesday at 9 a.m. (EST) from his high school library then he will head over to the ESPN Sports Zone.
Should the LSU coaches and Tiger fans be worried that his fax goes to Knoxville instead of Baton Rouge?
"No," he said. "They shouldn't be too worried."
Does that mean Sheppard is leaning to the Tigers?
"Yea," he said. "I'm leaning towards staying with LSU."
Finally, we asked Sheppard if his good friend and teammate, Perry Riley, who is also committed to the Tigers, is also leaning towards honoring his commitment?
"I don't want to speak for Perry but I think he is too," Sheppard said.
Is Sheppard, Riley still LSU bound?
