Shelton was a two year starter for the Wolverines in Raleigh, North Carolina. Standing at 5’10 165 pounds Shelton was being recruited by BYU, Utah, and Oregon State.
According to Shelton’s twitter feed, Shelton will finish his Senior year of high school in the state of Utah. Which school will he attend isn’t known at this time, but apparently he is doing it on his own.
Finishing high school in Utah out on my own is the bravest decision I have ever made for myself.
