Illinois Football Recruiting: Rashawn Shaw Receives Offer From Fighting Illini

2014 weak-side defensive end Rashawn Shaw received an offer from the Illinois Fighting Illini on Wednesday. The Florida native has been gaining plenty of interest from the Midwest. The Illini became the fifth Midwest team and the third Big Ten team (fourth if you count Rutgers) to offer at Shaw.

So far, the teams to have offer at Shaw are the Arkansas Razorbacks, Bowling Green Falcons, Cincinnati Bearcats, Connecticut Huskies, Duke Blue Devils, Florida International Panthers, Florida Atlantic Owls, Illinois Fighting Illini, Indiana Hoosiers, Louisville Cardinals, LSU Tigers, Marshall Thundering Herd, Massachusetts Minutemen, Michigan State Spartans, Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders, Mississippi State Bulldogs, North Carolina State Wolfpack, Northern Illinois Huskies, Purdue Boilermakers, Rutgers Scarlet Knights, South Carolina Gamecocks, South Florida Bulls, Southern Miss Golden Eagles, Tennessee Volunteers, and Central Florida Knights.

Rashawn Shaw has many different skills. He can get into the backfield with speed, come off the edge, but his biggest skill has to his hitting.

After looking at his film from 2012, it looks like this young recruit hits like a bag of bricks every single time.

In 2012, Shaw recorded 82 total tackles, 26 tackles for loss, fourteen sacks, and one fumble recovery.

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 87th in the state of Florida and 30th among weak-side defensive ends by 247Sports.
