Parkway Central's Brandon Sheperd appears to be headed for Oklahoma State University.
He isn't talking about it yet, but it appears Parkway Central Wide Receiver Brandon Sheperd has ended his college recruiting process. His coach, Mark Goldenberg, told Patch that Sheperd apparently committed to Oklahoma State University Monday morning. Sheperd was in Stillwater over the weekend for a recruiting visit which included OSU's game Saturday against archrival Oklahoma.

Saturday’s woeful performance in the other Manhattan only proved the Tigers need to upgrade their talent. Tiny 185 pound backs ran Mizzou’s defense silly. Scherer, who will arrive at Mizzou filled out at least 6-foot-3, 238 …
