North Laurel High School basketball star Reed Sheppard will announce his college commitment Saturday morning.
Sheppard — a 6-foot-3 combo guard from London — was one of the breakout basketball recruits nationally over the summer, landing scholarship offers from Kentucky, Louisville, Indiana and several other major programs. He will reveal his college choice at 9 a.m. Saturday.
Kentucky has hosted Sheppard for two unofficial visits this fall — including a trip to Big Blue Madness last month — and UK Coach John Calipari has also visited the in-state star in London. Sheppard’s parents, Jeff Sheppard and Stacey Reed Sheppard, were star players for the Wildcats in the 1990s.
