Tucker (Ga.) junior Elisha Shaw turned heads on the summer circuit , earning offers from Alabama and Florida State. Now he's ready to start taking visits.
Shaw is planning on taking his first unofficial visit of the season this Saturday, to watch the Crimson Tide take on Western Kentucky.
"I'm looking forward to getting down here and seeing a game," Shaw said.
After that he's planning on visiting Georgia on Sept. 15, when the Bulldogs host FAU. He also said he plans on visiting Florida State at some point during the fall, although he's yet to determine the date.
The 6-foot-6, 299-pound Shaw is one of the top defensive tackle prospects for the class of 2014, but has recently shown that he can also play on offense.
In his team's first game of the season, against Ellenwood (Ga.) Cedar Grove, Shaw saw the first action of his career at tight end.
"They've got me playing both ways," said Shaw said. "It's my first time playing tight end and I'm the blocking tight end so it gives me a chance to go out and hit people."
Because of an early season bye, defending state champion Tucker has played just one game this season. Shaw is hoping that his newly found versatility will help him add to his already impressive list of offers.
"I'm just trying to play well and hope schools notice me," Shaw said. "I'm getting a lot of looks, so hopefully those will lead to more offers."
