July 6th, 2009
phone has been ringing off the hook with the likes of Urban Meyer, Nick Saban,
and Lane Kiffin, but ThaRinger.com was lucky enough to catch up with Shaw who
discussed the latest with his recruitment, and more.
Shaw, who plays for Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando, Florida, has upwards to
30 offers, but says “roughly” five are starting to stick out.
“I’m considering all my offers but I like Florida State, Florida, Tennessee,
Georgia and Alabama.” Said the 6’1, 165 pounder. “That’s my rough top five right
What does Shaw like about those five schools?
“I like all the colleges because they air the ball out a lot.” Shaw said. “I
don’t really like anything specific but at Florida State and Florida I feel have
a better relationship with the coaches”
Shaw also addressed the message on his Facebook that read “FSU class of 2014”.
“My girlfriend did that.” Said a laughing Shaw.
Shaw also talked about his Dr. Phillips High School Team, as well as his
“We made the second of playoffs and had a 10-2 record.” Shaw offered. “We have a
good chance of winning states this year. As for myself, my best attribute is
probably my route running ability. I don’t think I have much to improve on, but
you can always work on things.”
Shaw, who claims Byrnes (SC) Running Back Marcus Lattimore was the best player
he’s ever played against, also has a few upcoming camps, as well as unofficial
visits in his future.
“On July 18th I plan on attending Seminole Showtime at Florida State, on the
23rd I got a 7 on 7 camp I’m going to and visits will just depend on my football
season.” Shaw said.
Shaw also described what he might do with his five allotted official visits, as
well as a timeline for a final decision.
“I’m taking all my official visits, and I’m deciding after that.” Shaw said. “I
don’t know where I’m going to take my official visits to yet, but I definitely
want to go out to California at either UCLA or Stanford.”
What does Shaw think of the very hectic recruiting process?
“At first it was kind of fun getting offers and all that but now that I got like
20 plus and you have to start thinking about it, it’s kind of like another job.”
Shaw currently ranks as the #294 player in the Class of 2010, and the 40th best
player in the state of Florida.
