When it comes to quarterback prospects from the Peach State Connor Shaw will be one of the most sought after next season among the Class of 2010. Shaw, 6-2 and 195 pounds, is from Flowery Branch (Ga.) High School. He just picked up his fourth scholarship offer.
"Wake Forest just offered me," Shaw said. "From what I have seen in Wake I like. They talked to my dad. This is all like a dream come true for me."
Shaw is the younger brother of Georgia Tech quarterback Jaybo Shaw (true freshman). The Yellow Jackets were the first school to offer Connor.
"They offered me right before the start of my junior year. That was an amazing feeling. From there, it just all started for me."
Stanford then offered followed by South Carolina.
"I like how coach Harbaugh has both college and NFL experience and of course Stanford is such a great school.
"I would love to play for coach Spurrier. I was a Gator fan as a kid and it was all because of him. It would be amazing to play for him."
Shaw is a dual threat quarterback. This season he threw for 2,200 yards, 22 touchdowns, and five interceptions. Shaw rushed for 951 yards and11 touchdowns.
Shaw will attend junior days at Wake Forest (February 8th), South Carolina (February 21st), Georgia Tech (January 31st), Clemson and West Virginia. He's graduating in December and would like to try and have a decision by the end of the summer.
"I am looking at academics, the coaching staffs, tradition and the conferences. I love the SEC and ACC. They are pretty big right now."
Will Georgia Tech be the team to beat with his brother being there? The two are very close.
"We are close and it would be awesome to play for Jaybo. But I will make the best decision for me."
