Fremont High graduate Jessica Shepard will transfer from Nebraska.
Coach Amy Williams announced Monday that the sophomore forward will leave the program. The 2015-16 Big Ten freshman of the year has not decided where she'll transfer. She was the No. 3 recruit in the country in her class.
Shepard grew up in Fremont and after her family moved to Lincoln, she began her high school career at Lincoln Southeast. She started as a freshman and went on to lead the Knights to two trips to the state championship game. She then transferred to Fremont High School, when her father, Mark, was hired by the district. She played her final two years of high school for the Tigers.
Shepard averaged 33 points and 14.3 rebounds in nine games for the Tigers during her senior season in 2015 before suffering a season-ending knee injury. She finished her prep career as the fourth-leading scorer in Nebraska history -- trailing only Darcy Stracke of Chambers (2,752), KC Cowgill of Grand Island Central Catholic (2,427) and Alyssa Frauendorfer of Humphrey (2,267).
Here are some photos of the former Tiger through the years.
