Shannon, a 6-foot-6 wing, played three seasons for Texas Tech, averaging 11 points per game across his career. The Chicago native shot 46% from the field this season, along with a career-high 38% from three-point range. Shannon developed himself into what many believed to be an NBA Draft candidate early in his career, but decided to come back to Texas Tech to play this year. This season, he put up more solid numbers, including career highs in three pointers made and assists.
After he posted that he was in Ann Arbor for the visit, on Friday, Shannon’s former AAU team, Mac Irvin Fire, tweeted at Shannon congratulating him and referencing Michigan. However, Shannon was quick to shut down the rumor, tweeting out a cap emoji, signifying that the commitment was not true (cap is slang for a lie).

Shortly after entering the portal, Shannon heard from a long list of schools, including Kentucky, Illinois, UConn, Michigan, and many more. While Michigan still appears to be a strong option for Shannon, this recruitment is certainly not over yet.
