But he hasn't heard from any film schools.

"I haven't had any contact with the film school (at UCLA) or any film schools about my acting, but we're going to see how it goes because I'm always up for a role," said Shaw.

Fortunately for Shaw, he heard from a ton of schools for his ability at cornerback and when UCLA offered him after their camp in June, it was just a few weeks later that he committed to the Bruins and that's what he plans to focus on in college.

This past weekend, just days before he'll sign his NLI with the Bruins, Shaw joined a handful of Bruin commits for their official visits.

"The trip was real cool.  The players were real welcoming and they made it seem as if I was already on the team.  The hospitality is real and the great UCLA bubble is real," said Shaw.

Shaw was hosted by tight end Caleb Wilson and quarterback Matt Lynch and a lot of his time was spent with Bruin coaches.

"I don't believe there was a coach who I spent most of my time with because it was all pretty divided evenly between Coach (Tom) Bradley, Coach Meat (Demetrice Martin) and Coach (Jim) Mora," said Shaw.

Shaw got to sit down with Martin and break down film.

"The thing that stood out to me the most was breaking down my film with Coach Meat," said Shaw.  "Seeing one of the main cover concepts we run, it's one I've been running at Centennial for two years now.

Shaw got a sneak preview at the new football facility while on his visit.

"Since the facility is being built, we walked around it, but the progress that they've made and the money they've put into it, it's going to be real nice and I can't wait," said Shaw.

Shaw plans to enroll in June and get started with the program then, but since he committed early, he's been able to mentally prepare for his time at UCLA.

"The recruiting process was good but and I'm glad to be a Bruin," said Shaw.
