Texas Longhorns WR Shipley granted 6th year of eligibility

AUSTIN — Texas wide receiver Jordan Shipley has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.

Shipley missed the 2004 and 2005 seasons because of knee and hamstring injuries. He is the top receiver for the No. 3 Longhorns with 79 catches for 982 yards and 11 touchdowns.

The third-team AP All-American also returned a punt and a kickoff for TDs this season, becoming just the fourth Longhorn to have both in a career.

"It is definitely a blessing to be able to play one more season at Texas," Shipley said in a statement released by the school Monday night.
