Starting at the Las Vegas Bader/New Level 7on7 in March, Shepard showed he could cover the best receivers in the West. But he solidified his position as one of the top cornerbacks in the 2012 class by locking receiver after receiver at the Stanford NFTC.
Despite not walking away with the MVP trophy, most agreed no one was more impressive than Shepard.
And college coaches are already taking notice.
On Thursday, Shepard added his biggest verbal offer to date.
"Notre Dame offered Tee," said Fresno Central assistant coach Tony Perry.
Perry, who has coached over 30 D1 defensive backs in the high school and JC ranks, says Shepard is the best at this stage of their career.
