LSU reciever Russell Shepard has apparently decided to leave the school before his senior season. But he didn’t make it clear on his Twitter feed yesterday where he would be going — to another school or to the NFL:
“Thanks for your support Tiger Nation…but I have to do what’s best for my family and myself…Geaux Tigers.”
That sounded like an NFL declaration to us, but some sites have claimed that Shepard was still deciding what to do.
Earlier today he tweeted that he was back in his hometown of Houston:
“Houston I’m back what’s good…..I don’t want to see a football right now lol.”
Russell had just 14 catches for 190 yards and four touchdowns this season. He was suspended by the NCAA for the Tigers’ first three games due to a compliance issue involving his living arrangements.
Whether he’s going to try to get an NFL team to look at his workout numbers or transfer to another school, it seems pretty clear — for now — that Shepard won’t be back in Baton Rouge for the 2012 season.
