Don't know anything about them other than this article.

The 6-foot Shanklin is a true point guard, who can score and loves to push the ball up and down the floor. Shanklin averaged 11 points a game as a freshman.

Shanklin has already visited UK, Tennessee and WKU. He played on the same AAU team as UK commitment Vinny Zollo and has also heard from U of L, Florida, Xavier and Cincinnati.
