After 2,380 yards as a junior, Shaw has continued to produce because he is a complete back who has excellent vision and can run with power and speed. The state's 5th ranked RB prospect decided to make his college choice, "I committed to USF, I talked with Coach Franks and told him I wanted to be a Bull, he was excited, it is a great thing, I'm real happy with my decision."
Shaw has not set up his official visit yet, but has been to USF plenty of times for camps, games, and events, "I'll set it up probably after the year, I'm real comfortable at USF, I am 100% Bull." Is there anything that could change his mind, "No, I am not like that. I am done."
This is the second USF commitment at the RB spot forming an interesting pairing with Columbia's Tiger Powell. Both have been highly productive backs who have run with a mean streak, "I like to have the ball in my hands, I can run inside or outside, I think people underrate my speed, there is a time to turn it on."
Desoto County sits at 5-3, but 2-0 in their district and have clinched a playoff spot, "We have a bye week, then play our rival Hardee for the district title. We don't like each other. That is a big game around here, last year I had two TD's in the second half, we won 21-20." The Bulldogs will finish up with Bayshore before starting their playoff run.
This is the Bull's 10th commitment(3 are JUCO) for 2010, all 7 high school seniors are from the Sunshine State. He joins Brion Carnes and Brandon Wilkinson as commits from the West Coast of Florida. Shaw is perhaps the state's most productive player and a player whose game projects well to the next level, the Bulls should be very happy today.
