He is set to announce at The Opening this week, sometime b/w tomorrow and July 10th.

Gamecocks have 100% of 12 CB projections on 247.

As things stand now, we would move to #3 on Rivals if he committed here.

We'd still be #6 on 247, moving from 230 pts to 234 pts. auburn is at 236 pts now.

Interesting to see the different formulas different outlets use. Whether #3 or #6, still a good spot to be in.

Unless something crazy happens we will have 1 more spot left for RB after next week. Hopefully it's an elite back like Scarlett or Frasier. If we settle for a "project" I'll be disappointed.

We are the only SEC team to offer according GC and FSU did not offer. I know we can coach kids up but there are some other CB with better offers list interested in us. We have 4 DBs now. I would be really interested to get one of those 6'2" guys.

Quick glance...knows how to hit the edge and also wait for his blocks. Also showed toughness breaking tackles.
Doesn't have the best top-end speed, but that is secondary in my way of evaluating players.

Shows good hands out of the backfield, high-points the ball and can be a threat out of the backfield...reminds me a lot of Kenny Miles..maybe a step or two faster.

Negatives: As far as I can tell from film (take film with a grain of salt of course) again, doesn't have elite speed, but is fast enough. In the system he runs, can he be an every down back? Right now, I'd put him as a third-down guy or a spelling back for the No. 1 guy.

Also, being real nit-picky on this one, doesn't always hold the ball high and tight...at times carries it like a loaf of bread. That can be fixed with coaching.

Overall, a good prospect...could def. be a good compliment or change of pace player to a guy like Jordan Scarlett (hoping we can flip him).
Most recruiting sites have top end speed as one of his strengths. Not saying they are right and you are wrong just that speed seems to be the biggest thing most folks like about him. One thing for sure, the kid is a top notch athlete so he can certainly help our program. Can also play Defense so if RB does not work out he will have other options. Another positive I see is this kid plays very physical.

Put it this way .. he has offers from Miami, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, and Wisconsin .. All of those schools know a thing or two about running backs.

That doesn't mean anything. We're known for our DB's, but that doesn't mean every DB we offer will be elite. Some will be busts and some will not.

Shaw has the potential to be one of those RB nobody wants to tackle in the 4th quarter......there is nothing more satisfying in football than having the lead in the 4th quarter when everyone in the stands and on the field know you're going to run the ball, and the defense can't stop it. This is how great teams win games.

I know that.


I was using us recruiting DB's, since we're known for our DB's, as an equivalent example to teams like Miami and Ohio St for their RB's.
