Branden Sheppard is an extremely athletic and talented Power Forward. A former NCAA Division 1 player, Sheppard blossomed more and more each season of his collegiate career. He runs the floor like a guard and finishes well above the rim. Branden is very aggressive and strong and still has plenty of room to fill out his long and lanky frame. During the course of his career he developed the ability to step out and hit 15-18 footers. He is a great rebounder and a very good shot blocker. He will blossom in a professional system that is looking for a rangy big man that can be a match up problem on the offensive end and someone to protect the rim on the other end. We look for big things out of Branden!
