WIR: Shamsud-din switches to Pepperdine

In another example of an all too common trend, 6-foot-2 Ameer Shamsud-din (Portland, Ore./Benson Tech) changed his mind and cast his lot with the Pepperdine Waves after previously being committed to Loyola Marymount. Shamsud-din joins ESPN 150 recruit Brad Tinsley (Oregon City, Ore.) and 5-11 Paul McCoy (Portland, Ore./Grant) to form an impressive group of perimeter prospects.

Tinsley, who turned down offers from California and Utah, is a cerebral guard who can play both guard positions due to his shooting and decision making while McCoy has a tremendous upside and should turn out to be one of the better point guards down the road in the conference.
