UTEP's Tim Floyd in the Hunt for Rivals 4 Star SF Winston Shepard

First, the UTEP Miners basketball team received a commitment from 6'5 swingman Twymond Howard.  Howard,  a Rivals 4 star recruit, chose the Miners over offers from the Baylor Bears, Tennessee Volunteers, Georgetown Hoyas, and Arkansas Razorbacks among others.  Now, another four star forward, Winston Shepard, is considering UTEP.  According to Rivals.com's Eric Bossi, Shepard has UTEP in his top six along with Oklahoma State, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, and Georgia.  Now, Shepard himself is reaching out to the Miner Nation by seeking UTEP fans to follow him on Twitter.   Here are the highlights of the 6'8 forward from Findlay Prep.

Shepard's Rivals page lists offers from the schools mentioned above as well as the Texas Longhorns, Missouri Tigers, and Memphis Tigers.  Tim Floyd has already snagged a whale in Twymond Howard, but now we'll get to see if he can take that recruiting momentum and build a class that could be among the best in the nation.  Snagging a commit from Shepard would launch UTEP's recruiting class into a truly elite class.
