Defensive tackle prospect Travis Shaw has committed to North Carolina to give the team one of the top players in the entire 2022 class.
The Grimsley High School product native announced his decision Saturday from the school's football field.
The 5-star recruit is considered the No. 4 overall player in the country by 247Sports' composite rankings and the top player from his state of North Carolina.
At 6'5", 310 pounds, Shaw is an imposing presence on the defensive line who can dominate at the high school level and contribute early in college while providing valuable strength up front.
Of course, there is more to the player than just his measurements.
"He's very skilled for that size," high school coach Darryl Brown said of Shaw, per Stephen Means of Cleveland.com. "He's a really good athlete, moves well, has great footwork. When I said he's skilled, he can do a lot of different things on a football field or a basketball court. He can throw a football 65 yards. He used to be the middle school quarterback. … He's just a really skilled, gifted athlete in a lot of ways."
