In the offseason Shaw bulked up and was moved back to safety. By the break of fall camp he was ready to play his natural position.
He only lasted their for one game at Hawaii.
Shaw has since replaced Brown at cornerback and it appears it could be his home at USC for the remainder of the season as the Trojans continue to battle injuries at the position.
He says he doesn't mind playing corner and is willing to do whatever the team needs to win.
Shaw made seven tackles in the Trojans 17-14 victory over Utah State on Saturday.
Through USC's first four games, he has 16 tackles, two for a loss, and has one interception returned for 35 yards for a touchdown.
Shaw is listed as a co-starter at cornerback this week as the Trojans prepare to travel to Arizona State.
