Spring Grove’s David Shaw committed to Maryland

Spring Grove’s soon-to-be senior standout lineman David Shaw has committed to the University of Maryland, Rockets coach Russ Stoner confirmed late Sunday night.

Shaw, who has been pursued by the Terrapins since at least last fall, will be the third among his brothers to play Division I college football. John and Jim Shaw played for Penn State through the 2006 season. Jim started at Rice before transferring to the Nittany Lions for his junior and senior years, while John played his entire collegiate career at PSU. Their father, James Shaw, played college football for Colgate.

Instead of heading north to State College, David will travel just 80 miles south to play for a fellow York County native and Susquehannock graduate, Randy Edsall.

An All-YAIAA performer, Shaw is expected to play on the defensive line at Maryland.

    Matt,

    Can you comment as to why he doesn’t seem to have a number of stars rating? AN all area performer as a junior, good size, good bloodlines…Is he relatively unknown, plays against weak competition, or truly overlooked? Seems he should have at least 2* or 3*.

    Thanks.

      Andy,

      Rivals has him rated as a two-star recruit, while Scout has not rated him.

      The kids legit, a recruit doesn’t always need stars to be a top recruit. Some people just fly under the radar and don’t go to combines to get stars. Besides just because the athlete has X amount of stars doesn’t mean they’ll do how they’re predicted they might do better or worse, there is more to football then 40 yard dash times and how many times you can bench 225. Maryland got a great recruit here and he’ll have a great career for them giving opposing offensive lines troubles.
