The first commitment to Notre Dame’s class of 2012, doing so all the way back in March, Tee Shepard is one of three members of the class who enrolled early for the spring semester.

The fourth best cornerback prospect in the country according to rivals.com, Shepard has great size and length for cornerback and impressive football instincts, which makes him a potential lockdown defensive back for the Irish.

Shepard sat out his senior season due to an eligibility issue after transferring high schools, but competed in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl in January.
