Shaw, a 6-4, 330-pounder with 5.0 speed, is one of the top defensive tackles in the South but he is also getting looked at for the offensive side of the ball.
Shaw went into the LSU camp with offers from UCLA and Tennessee. There had been some confusion over whether he had an offer from the Tigers because he had heard from numerous third parties that he did in fact have one. He had hoped that by the time he left Baton Rouge that the air would be cleared and he would have an official offer.
Did the mammoth lineman get any confirmation from the LSU coaches?
"No," he said. "They didn't say anything about an offer. I was supposed to talk to coach Miles at the end of the day on Monday but he was with his family."
Shaw only spent one day at the camp because he had to get back to Lafayette. In the morning session he worked out at defensive tackle but he moved over to the offensive line in the afternoon segment for his first taste on offense.
"Coach Miles asked me if I'd try offense so in the afternoon I played right guard," said Shaw. "I think I did okay but in one-on-one drills I got beat some. That kind of got to me but I felt pretty good overall since it was my first time playing there."
Shaw said he was glad he attended the camp because he learned some new techniques that will help his game. He also got a chance to talk to the coaches who are recruiting him and to meet one that he had never met before.
"I got to meet coach (Bo) Pellini (defensive coordinator) and I had never even talked to him before," Shaw said. "He was a real nice guy. He asked me what schools I was looking at and I told him LSU. He said he was going to try to make it happen."
After getting a little taste on both sides of the ball, does Shaw have a preference for where he wants to play at the next level?
"I still want to play defense but I want to play for LSU," he said. "So, if they want me for offense then I'll play there."
By the numbers: (Jr.) 98 tackles/7 ½ sacks/1 INT/340 Bench/3.9 GPA/ 22 ACT.
