“I would first like to thank my family, friends, coaches, and everyone else that stuck with me throughout the tough times and continued to believe in me invest in my future.

After making his decision public, Shaw talked to PSN about the reason he accepted Pitt’s offer and the type of player that he can be with the Panthers.
“Firstly, I missed three years of high school football due to injury,” said Shaw. “I’m choosing to go to Pitt because I have a lot to prove and want to show that I can contribute at a high level. I have a lot of room to grow and improve and I think Pitt is getting one of the hardest workers they’ll ever see.”
Shaw also had a PWO opportunity from Temple and Delaware State University.
