Blinn JuCo OT Hanner Shipley talks about his offer to Southern Miss

Southern Miss has targeted JuCo OT Hanner Shipley of Blinn CC. He talked with about where the Eagles stand with him..

Hanner Shipley is a 6'5, 300lb OT who now plays for Blinn (TX) but will soon be finishing out his career at the next level.  

Southern Miss is the first to offer the talented tackle at the JuCo level.  Shipley started his career by signing with LSU out of Marble Falls (TX).  When things didn't work out there for him, the former 3 star TE (out of high school) transferred to Abilene Christian College where he put on the muscle and moved to offensive tackle.  

Now at Blinn JuCo, the talented Shipley is once again wide open as to where he'll end up next.  

"Southern Miss contacted me and told me they loved my film and were looking for a guy who could come in right away and start at tackle," Shipley told

"They made me an offer, my first at the Junior College level."

Shipley added how much that offer meant to him.

"It really means a lot because they see me a a guy who can play right away for them," he said.  "I will always consider them in my decision because they took that chance on me. 

"I can't wait to get over there and take a visit."

Right now, he also has interest from Nevada, Texas State, USC, and Indiana.  He has not worked out a date to visit Southern Miss but said it is "absolutely in the works."
