In a somewhat surprising turn of events, Ohio State flipped Wisconsin three-star safety commit Bryson Shaw on Saturday afternoon.
Please respect my decision. My recruitment is now closed. Go Buckeyes! pic.twitter.com/QBY5f2p9Jh— Bryson shaw (@bshaw272727) April 28, 2018
The Shaw File
- Class: 2019
- Size: 6-foot-2, 175 pounds
- Pos: S
- School: The Bullis School (MD)
- Composite Rating: ★★★
- Composite Rank: 53 (S)
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Shaw is considered the 53rd-best safety and No. 660 prospect overall in the Class of 2019. He holds double-digit offers from programs such as Duke, Maryland, Syracuse, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
Shaw first came onto the Buckeyes' radar last fall, and he attended the highly anticipated win over Penn State in late October. The staff then offered him a scholarship in early February, just a week after he pledged his services to the Badgers.
Co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Alex Grinch immediately turned up the heat in Shaw's recruitment. The Bullis School was one of his first stops during the Spring Evaluation Period, and apparently his visit on Tuesday was enough to swing things in the Buckeyes' favor.
Shaw becomes the seventh member of Ohio State’s Dynasty ‘19 recruiting class, joining Indiana four-star running back Sampson James, West Virginia four-star offensive tackle Doug Nester, Mentor four-star defensive end Noah Potter, Georgia four-star athlete Steele Chambers, New Jersey four-star athlete “Rocket” Ronnie Hickman and Mentor three-star offensive tackle Ryan Jacoby.
Eleven Warriors will have more on Shaw's pledge shortly.
