Jared Shaw is also a good student who is fully qualified with a 3.9 GPA. He runs in the 5.25 range and recorded 98 tackles with 7.5 sacks as a junior at Lafayette Northside High School. He reportedly had offers from UCLA and Tennessee among others.
Given Shaw's size and speed he seems a better fit for Tennessee's offensive line. However he has played primarily on the D-line and expressed reluctance to switch sides in an interview last spring with Sonny Shipp of TigerRag.com.
"Not really because I like defense," he said. "I think I'm better suited for defense because I can move well for my size. I have good technique and I can get after it."
Shaw is Tennessee's 19th commitment in the Class of 2006. He is not currently ranked by Scout.com but is rated a two-star prospect. More to follow.
