SHAW, JOHNSON BUILDING RELATIONSHIP
On Monday, we briefly touched on the battles Ohio State and North Carolina have had over the past couple cycles and how that has carried over to the 2021 class with the Buckeyes and Tar Heels going after Evan Pryor, rising defensive end Jahvaree Ritzie and offensive guard Jared Wilson.

Another whom we mentioned is the nation’s third-ranked defensive tackle and the top-ranked sophomore in North Carolina, Grimsley High School’s Travis Shaw, a 6-foot-5, 310-pounder ranked in the top 30 overall of 247Sports’ first class of 2022 rankings.

Shaw is a no-doubt 3-tech defensive tackle who performs his best inside the trenches, flashing power and core strength with bull rushing and an ability to shed blocks to get into the backfield.

However, in Grimsley’s defensive system, Shaw is often used as a defensive end, sometimes in a two-point stance. He’s very athletic for his size, he shows a capability of getting to the edge at times and his pursuit is impressive for the weight he carries. But he does lumber a bit in getting out there, and he will have to continue improving his lateral quickness in order for that to translate to the college level.

Of course, with gyms being shut down, that makes it more difficult to get in the work he will need to get in, but Shaw says it’s going well thus far.

“I’m handling it really well, still staying active,” Shaw told Eleven Warriors. “I wouldn’t say it’s aggravating (not having gym access), but I do miss it.”

At this point, Shaw’s communication with college coaching staffs has been limited with the rules tightening that a bit, as coaches are unable to reach out to class of 2022 players directly until Sept. 1. But so far, he has still been able to get to slowly build relationships with certain programs, and that includes talking a bit with Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson.

“It’s going really well, I’m really enjoying it,” Shaw said of the recruiting process. “I have a numerous amount of schools trying to build a relationship with me. I have a really good relationship with the Ohio State coaching staff. I’ve communicated with Coach Johnson the most.”

Shaw says that he and the North Carolina coaches “have a pretty decent relationship. I’ve talked with (defensive line) coach (Tim) Cross and (receivers) coach (Lonnie) Galloway.”
