Shelton had been committed to the Mid-American Conference school since May.

This past season, he was named to the All-Region 5-AAAA first team offense after catching 32 passes for 521 yards and seven touchdowns. He also had 32 carries for 167 yards.

The Panthers also used him on defense where he recorded 28 tackles and had an interception.
