High School Highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

Shaw started playing football at the age of nine, but because of his size he was forced to play in the 10-13 year-old league, before soon graduating to the 14-15 age group. He comes from a football family - his father, James, played at Colgate, and brothers John and Jim were both linemen at soon-to-be in-conference rival Penn State.

His high school head coach, Russ Stoner, played at Towson with Mike Locksley, so there's some obvious in-program connections going on there.

Last season, Shaw was an All-YAIAA player, with 54 tackles as a defensive lineman. He also represented Team Pennsylvania in the Big 33 Classic.

Profiling the entire team



Career Highlight:

Signing with Maryland.

Dream Season:

Filling in for Nate Clarke and seeing the field as a true freshman.

2014 Prospectus:

Shaw is a project at a big position of need, as finding a nose tackle that can command a 3-4 is no easy task. He's certainly got the frame for it, and that's what Maryland will be building off of during his (likely) five years in College Park. Darius Kilgo and Keith Bowers, the two co-starters at the position, are both seniors, and with Nate Clarke gone, there's suddenly an opening there for next year. Shaw will be one of the main contenders, along with Kingsley Opara, Roman Braglio and incoming freshman Keiron Howard.
