Shelton sounds like a real nice athlete and will be a nice addition to the byu secondary. A speedster with 4.4 speed and has a nice vertical leap. The whole star system isn't that big of a deal and im not sure its all that accurate. I would argue that over the years BYU has had better luck with the 3 stars and under players. They seem to come in with a chip on their shoulder to prove that they can play and usually end up being some of the more productive players.


"My earlier post, which was approved, doesn't show up on this article so he it is again. Very disappointed in the way this article is framed. Saying Shelton was recruited by Utah and a bunch of other big name schools is very misleading. I don't see that he had any offers from any of these schools. Utah recently signed a QB from Louisiana. He was, using the same standard as for this article, recruited by Alabama, Auburn, Nebraska, LSU, Miss St., ASU, and Miami. All that means is that at some point those schools sent him a letter or made contact. Doesn't mean they made him an offer."

CO Ute, first, you are correct to separate Utah from big name schools.

Additionally, if you check the Rivals site you will see he holds an offer from Auburn. It is listed right above his commit to BYU.
