ESPN: Russell Shepard Dealing With Compliance

Most of the media was both perplexed and upset at talkative LSU wide receiver Russell Shepard‘s absence from SEC media days after he was previously scheduled to participate.

But Friday’s news of a possible compliance issue with Shepard might have been the reason. A source told ESPN’s Joe Schad that Sheppard is dealing with an NCAA compliance concern related to rent payment arrangements with a woman who he has lived with and who is also a student worker in LSU’s football office.

When asked about Shepard’s absence Friday, LSU coach Les Miles said “there were some things that Russell had to take care of back in Baton Rouge.” Senior offensive lineman T-Bob Hebert replaced Shepard in LSU’s lineup.

Miles was pressed about Shepard’s situation, but didn’t provide many answers when asked if there was a compliance issue with Shepard.
