Former Cincinnati CB Ja’Quan Sheppard Receives Offer from West Virginia



West Virginia, like many other college football programs, is looking to former Cincinnati players as viable options who could have an immediate impact.

The latest offer presented by the Mountaineers to a recent Bearcat goes to cornerback Jaquan Sheppard. After earning a spot on the All-AAC team, Sheppard, announced he was entering the transfer portal on Dec. 5, soon after head coach Luke Fickell left to take over at Wisconsin.

Sheppard record 33 tackles during the 2022 season, the year he saw the most playing time by a huge margin. He will now be on the hunt for another place to close his college career in 2023.

He has already collected several options, obtaining offers from other “Power 5” programs like Virginia Tech, Maryland, Vanderbilt and Arkansas to this point.
