Reed Sheppard Tristan Pharis

It appears we now know what jersey number Reed Sheppard will wear during his freshman season at Kentucky. Kentucky Sports Radio’s photographer Dr. Michael Huang was in attendance at John Calipari’s Father-Son Camp and noticed Sheppard’s nameplate above during the camp’s locker room tour. The number on the nameplate? None other than the same No. 15 his father, Jeff Sheppard, wore during his time at Kentucky.

Jeff was a star and a fan favorite during his time at Kentucky. He helped bring two national champion banners to Lexington in 1996 and 1998, while also being named Most Outstanding Player and averaging over 21 points per game in 1998 Final Four.

Jeff did all of this while wearing No. 15. Reed will look to build a legacy of his own when he starts his career at Kentucky this fall. He’s one of several talented freshmen coming in to join a team that saw all but two players from last year’s roster leave this offseason. Reed will have plenty of opportunity to showcase his skills and thrive in UK’s offense this fall.
