Ohio State safety Bryson Shaw has committed to USC today.
This is an interesting addition. You could say it’s simply USC adding depth at safety.
But Shaw was third in tackles last season and started 12 games. He had nine tackles in the Rose Bowl against Utah.
Apparently, he knew he wasn’t going to start at Ohio State, which is deep at the position for next season (Josh Proctor, Ronnie Hickman, Kourt Williams, Tanner McCaliste).
This has to be a wake-up call for the USC safeties. Other than Calen Bullock, I doubt the coaches are sold on anyone else. Shaw is leaving Ohio State because he wants to start somewhere else, presumably.
USC has 14 transfers now since Lincoln Riley took over.
