With Johnny Garcia tearing his ACL early on in practice, true freshman Rashawn Shaw will get a chance to shine early in his career at Wake Forest. The 6-3, 230 pound Shaw hails from Fort Pierce, Florida, and graduated from Central High School.
He was the No. 32 rated defensive end in the country by 247Sports, and made First team Class 8A All-State in 2013. Shaw committed to Wake Forest after Coach Clawson got to Winston-Salem, de-committing from Louisville in the process
Shaw's versatility is an asset that will be very useful to the Deac's new defensive scheme. He played some outside linebacker in high school as well, but has the frame to move freely along on the defensive line.
Georgia Tech, Purdue, Arkansas, Boston College, LSU, Tennessee and South Carolina also offered Shaw before he chose Wake Forest.
Based on the position that Shaw plays, and his ability to move around, I would not be surprised at all to see Shaw get some snaps this year for Wake. He is one of the more talented players Wake Forest has brought in recently, and hopefully he will demonstrate that skill on the field in short order.
