Cypress Ridge quarterback Russell Shepard, regarded as the top high school player in the area, announced Monday that he would commit to reigning national champion LSU.

"LSU is a good school and a good fit for me," Shepard told Scout.com. "The recruiting stuff was getting hectic, so I wanted to get it out of the way early so I could focus on my upcoming season. I know LSU is where I want to go."

The 6-2, 185-pound Shepard chose the Tigers over the likes of Texas, Texas A&M, Florida and Michigan, who were among the 35 schools that offered him a scholarship.

Shepard ran for 1,525 yards and 18 touchdowns while passing for 794 yards and seven scores during the 2007 season, where he helped lead the Rams to an 11-2 record. He is rated by Scout.com as the top player in the state and the No. 8 player in the nation.
