Location: Palmdale, Calif.- Palmdale HS
Weight: 180 pounds
Scouting Report: Shaw has the height and length that college coaches, and NFL coaches for that matter, drool over in a cornerback's body. He's a skilled athlete, he can play corner, safety, quarterback, receiver or running back (all which he has for Palmdale). He's strong in press coverage and the physical nature of his game makes it difficult for receivers to get past him at the line of scrimmage. He's a real fluid athlete, and has very good hips, important for a corner. Fundamentally, is making huge strides, seeing him in the spring to late summer you could see how much more natural he looked in his technique. He's still relatively lean but could probably hold another 15-20 pounds. As he continues to add more strength, he'll be even more difficult to get past.
Overall Analysis: Shaw is the top cornerback prospect in the West, and one of the best all-around athletes in the entire region. He's similar to Robert Golden, now starting at Arizona as a sophomore, our top cornerback two years ago, in their style of play, ability to cover and willingness to be physical. He's one of the better defensive back prospects we've seen in the last couple of years, and the best prospect we've seen out of the Antelope Valley in the past five years.
