"I really like Arizona's new coach," said Shaw. "I would not mind going there at all. They have a whole new program and I am very interested in them."

Shaw is interested enough to make the Cats his leader over USC, Oregon, Oregon State, Purdue, Tennessee, Miami, and Oklahoma.

Enright thinks very highly of his Grandson.

"He is a tough guy and has loads of ability. Derek has over 40 schools contacting him right now and for good reason. He is a great, great player."

Oceanside Head Coach John Carroll says of Shaw, "He has a strong arm and a lot of potential. He could be a big-time quarterback."

Shaw, himself, thinks he has what it takes to be a great one.

"I have a good arm and will sit in the pocket and make my reads. I do not get rattled and will take my hits. I can move around well and throw the ball when it is time to. I thrive on shotguns and rollouts."

He plans on possibly attending the USC camp and will attend the San Diego State Nike Camp.

Derek carries a 2.7 core GPA and is taking his SAT May First. He would like to major in Business.
