It finally became official this afternoon -- when Notre Dame sent out the release below...
6'- 4" sophomore center Jessica Shepard, a one-time Big Ten Rookie of the Year -- is now officially enrolled at Notre Dame. Shepard, who will have to sit out the upcoming season, will have two years of eligibility left with Muffet's Fighting Irish.
Shepard had a 35 point / 20 rebound game during her freshman season with the Cornhuskers. She averaged 18 points and 9 boards a game her sophomore season.
Jessica was the consensus #3 ranked player in the country -- in the recruiting class that landed Notre Dame Arike Ogunbowale and Marina Mabrey. A great get for ND!
