Eric Shaw

TE Eric Shaw of Notasulga, AL has increased his offer list in recent weeks to include Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Southern Miss, Ole Miss, Florida and LSU. He’s been sitting on offers from USC, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Auburn, Texas A&M, Virginia, Nebraska and others.

Shaw visited USC in April for the spring game and recruiter Bobby Bentley has maintained steady contact with him.

“Me and coach Bentley have a good relationship,” Shaw said.   “They still want me to play down there.  They are definitely one of my top teams.  I’ve got a good relationship them. They are one of my top teams.  I just feel like I would be a great fit at South Carolina.”  

Shaw said he’s not ready to elaborate on other teams who he considers among his favorites because he needs to take more visits. Some of the trips he plans to make this summer will be to Florida, LSU, Texas A&M, Tennessee and Ole Miss. He also plans a return trip to USC.

Shaw can play linebacker as well as tight end. He said the Gamecocks have been recruiting him strictly for tight end.

Shaw suffered a torn ACL in his left knee midway thru last season but has been cleared to return to football related activities.
