"Overall I think I did pretty well," Shaw said. "Especially during the one on ones. Only one guy caught a pass against me all day and I was able to get a lot of reps in so it went very well."
"Getting a UCLA offer is great," Shaw said. "I have been waiting on this one for awhile now.
"Coach (UCLA defensive coordinator) Chuck Bullough told me to hang in there because UCAL was very interested in me," Shaw said. "He told me to come up here to camp and we will go from there. I'm proud of the way I did it and that's why I received the offer.
"UCLA is great," Shaw said. "The setting at UCLA, I don't know if it gets any better than there. It is the school that my parents really, really, really love and I love it too. I have big time ties to the school."
Were there any wide receivers at the camp that impressed Shaw?
"I thought that Paul Richardson and Kenneth Scott were the two best receivers," Shaw said. "There were a lot B2G people that I work out with and everybody from B2G represented themselves well and that's everywhere I go, B2G represents and I am proud of all of those guys."
Shaw's sole intention for going to UCLA's camp was to get an offer and the young man accomplished his goal.
"It feels great to accomplish goals," Shaw said. "I worked so hard so to see it all fall into place how it does is just great."
With UCLA's offer, Shaw now has 21 scholie opportunities. He has picked up 10 of them since he earned the NIKE Camp defensive back MVP in a Palo Alto. That camp was less than a month ago.
"I have a lot of big schools coming after me, but I'm not only necessarily into the schools because of the name and things like that," Shaw said. "I just want to make sure it is the best fit for me, academically, socially and athletically."
Does Shaw have a timetable for his decision?
"I'm heading somewhere around early December," Shaw said. "Somewhere around December because I want to be an early graduate."
Shaw has already set up two visits, one he already has a date.
"The only two I know of right now are Notre Dame, I will be out there on October 17th for the USC game," Shaw said. "I will also be visiting Oklahoma. I haven't locked that one in yet, but I'm working on it."
The camp circuit has been very beneficial for Shaw thus far and he has at least one more stop on the circuit before he calls it a day.
"I will be going to the USC Rising Stars Camp," Shaw said. "That's all I know of right now.
