Shaw Gets First Scholarship Offer

Montgomery defensive end Kyle Shaw talks about recruiting and his senior season.

Montgomery, Ala.--A very physical defensive end prospect has picked up his first scholarship offer and says he's glad to finally have one in hand.

Athletic Kyle Shaw from Trinity Presbyterian School has picked up an offer from a new program and notes he's also hearing from several more colleges.

"Things are going pretty well," Shaw tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I got my first offer from South Alabama this past week. That was pretty nice. It's exciting just to get an offer from somewhere. I think in a week or two we're going to go down there and check things out."

Being recruited for the Jaguars by former Prattville coach Bill Clark, Shaw says that right now he's focusing on learning as much as he can about the program, the coaching staff and university before making a decision.

"I have spoken with him a few times," Shaw says. "That's kind of what the trip down there is for. We're going to get to know him and see what the deal is and look around the campus. We want to see the school.

Also hearing from Auburn, Ole Miss and Alabama, Shaw says he hasn't received any other offers. He adds that he doesn't have any immediate plans to make a decision and it may be determined by what other colleges jump into the mix with offers down the road before signing day in February.

One of the top players on an always successful Trinity squad, the 6-3, 230 Shaw has helped the Wildcats to a 7-2 regular season with both losses coming to ranked and undefeated teams in Class 3A and 4A. They will get the playoffs underway this Friday night at home against Sumter County.

Playing defensive end and also a little tight end, Shaw has been a productive part of both sides of the ball for Coach Randy Ragsdale's team. "I have been pretty pleased," Shaw says. "I have been playing pretty well. For the season I have 77 tackles, eight sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and an interception return for a touchdown. I think I have also caught four passes for 44 yards and a touchdown."

Shaw is the younger brother of former Auburn walk on wide receiver Zack Shaw.
