Big Ten Hoops Star Transfers to Notre Dame

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!
