Favorite Schools: Three schools rank near the top of Shipley's list; Oklahoma, Texas and Texas Tech.
Skinny: The 2003 season will see one of the top receivers from last fall return for one final year.
Shipley was one of the state's top receivers in 2002 hauling in over 1,700 yards and 22 scores.
"Last fall was a pretty good season for me," Shipley said. "It was a lot of fun."
Shipley is looking for a school that has an offense that will get the ball to him, in hopes of producing at a high level.
"Texas and Oklahoma don't throw the ball as much as I'm used to," he said. "But they have a lot to offer too. Texas Tech's offense is one that would excite a any receiver."
Shipley is planning summer camp action at the Nike camp in College Station the first weekend of May.
"I'll go to that one first. Then I'll go to Oklahoma and Texas during the summer too."
Shipley is currently holding scholarship offers from Oklahoma, Texas, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State.
