BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Senior-year totals included 53/900/10 as a pass-catcher and a 28.6-yard average on 32 kick returns, three of which were brought back for touchdowns. Junior-year receiving totals included 51/799/8.
POSITIVES: Short, elusive possession receiver with the versatility to be used as a return specialist. Sells routes, displays sharpness into breaks, and quickly transitions from making the reception to running after the catch. Fearless, goes up in a crowd to make the reception, and possesses good eye/hand coordination. Elusive handling the ball and creates yardage running after the catch or returning kicks. Adjusts to the errant throw and displays relatively strong hands.
NEGATIVES: Possesses only average speed and not a deep threat. May struggle handling jams at the next level.
ANALYSIS: Shipp is an underrated prospect who.s been a go-to guy the past three seasons. He must make his mark on special teams, yet he could fit in as a fifth receiver.
