Four-Star Safety Bryson Shaw Flips From Wisconsin to Ohio State

Bryson Shaw Ohio State Football Ohio State Recruiting

Ohio State received a commitment on Saturday when 4-star Maryland safety Bryson Shaw flipped from Wisconsin to the Buckeyes. Ohio State offered Shaw in February. He announced the commitment (and decommitment) via Twitter.

Shaw (6-2 175) is ranked the No. 16 safety per 247Sports and the No. 230 player in the 2019 class overall. He is also a 5-star lacrosse prospect for The Bullis School in Potomac.

Along with the offers from Ohio State and Wisconsin, Shaw also held offers from Duke, Maryland, Rutgers, Syracuse, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Virginia.

He committed to Maryland for lacrosse in 2015 — four years before he would even be eligible to play for the Terps.

Last season — his first at The Bullis School — Shaw scored 29 goals and added 13 assists in lacrosse, and caught 27 passes for 474 yards and five scores in football. He also rushed for 213 yards and returned two of his three interceptions for touchdowns. He returned both a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns last season as well.

In his highlights below, Shaw shows plenty of speed. A long athlete, he can cover a lot of ground. He is a physical defender and runner when he has the ball. His long strides in the return game display his top-end speed. This is a trait that could be put to good use on the boundary at safety for the Buckeyes.

Shaw becomes the seventh commit for Ohio State in the 2019 class. He joins likely safety Ronnie Hickman in the secondary for the Buckeyes.

  1. Can’t believe the comments here and other sites on this kid. Few years ago, people would have been very excited to have his talent. I like him a lot and think he will contribute in more than one way.

  2. Gotta trust the coaches on this one…
