SEATTLE - The Scout.com Northwest Hot 100 can now be put to bed for the class of 2008. Spanning five states and one province, there are 27 schools represented, from BCS conferences all the way down to NAIA Division-1. The top-20 didn't change much, but there was a new entry into the top-25, and the Oregon State Beavers had the two biggest risers in the group.

SPOKANE - You would think Alex Shaw deserves a better fate. All the 6-foot-2, 218-pound running back/linebacker prospect from Lewis and Clark High in Spokane did was earn 4A State co-Player of the Year honors and run for 176 yards on 39 carries, leading the Tigers to the 4A State crown over Bothell. He was a force on both sides of the ball. And for all that, he received one Division 1-AA offer.

A NUMBER OF recruits offered late -- and "late" in this age of ever early offers and verbals means a month or three before Letter of Intent Day -- have gone on to terrific college careers. Any number of circumstances can be reason why; marked development in senior year, tape going out after the season, etc. Alex Shaw, brother of Vandal DE Josh Shaw, might see his name become part of that group.

One of the more underrated players in the Evergreen State is Lewis and Clark LB Alex Shaw. He's been having a great season for the Tigers and he's just now started to see recruiting pick up as well. Dawgman.com spoke to him recently and he talked about recruiting and what he's looking forward to over the next few months.
