"I saw how much it can be," Shaw said. "I'm prepared to handle it."
The Monsignor Pace standout offensive tackle prospect, who now goes 6-6 and 280, will be among the state's top prospects in 2007.
"I think I'm a pretty good athlete," he said. "I can block downfield and I play defense, too."
Long arms, quick feet, and the ability to dominate are what coaches are looking for in left tackles today and he has those attributes. That's why he now has 11 offers.
"My top five are Ohio State, Florida, Louisville, Tennessee, and Ole Miss," he said. "All of them except for Ohio State have offered me and I also have them from Florida State, UCF, North Carolina, Georgia Tech, West Virginia, FIU, and Auburn."
Shaw, who carries a 3.1 GPA inside the classroom, camped at Miami and Florida State last summer and knows what he'll be looking for in a school.
"I'm looking for a place with a good combination of academics and a good environment for the players," he said.
