Shaw Visits Badgers

Greg Shaw, from Miami (Fla.) Monsignor Pace updated FightinGators.com on his recruiting and his recent trip to Wisconsin.

Greg Shaw is one of the top offensive linemen from the South Florida area. Shaw, at 6-6, 280-pounds, has tremendous upside and was all-state last season. He has 27 offers, including Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Miami, North Carolina, Ohio State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

"I just got back in town this morning [June 28 from Wisconsin]," Shaw said. "I am a little tired and sore from the camp but it looks like I will survive."

"I still do not have any leaders. The camp was a lot of fun. It was hotter than I thought it would be. I had a chance to meet offensive line coach Palic. He talked to me about my technique and showed me some things that I will use during my senior season. Some of the things that we talked about were hands on the shoulders to repossession the hands at the chest. I did not do the one on one run blocking in the drills before so it was fun."

"I love the contact. I loved the positive attitude and the hands on training. I liked how they teach the basics and get great results. They produce great lineman, so I think that it would be a good fit for me. The stadium was great and I really enjoyed the campus."

My Take:
In the end, home is where the heart is. Greg Shaw's heart I believe is in Louisville with his brother Willie Williams. Shaw has spoken very highly of the Gators every time that we have talked, but also speaks very highly of Louisville. As it stands right now, I believe Florida will end up with three offensive linemen in this year's class. At the top of the board look for Matt Patchan and Tyler Love. Love is the top prospect at the tackle position. Patchan has strong family ties to the 'Canes but in the end, the Gators have a shot. Zebrie Sanders favors the Gators. Others to watch are Kenneth Page, Daniel Campbell and Vinston Painter.
