Boise State football gets verbal commitment from Las Vegas DE Shaw

Boise State’s win at UNLV on Saturday is the gift that keeps on giving.

The Broncos picked up a verbal commitment from a Las Vegas defensive end Sunday, on Boise State coach Bryan Harsin’s birthday, to boot. Derriyon Shaw, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound pass rusher from Legacy High in northern Las Vegas announced via Twitter he has committed to the Broncos. He took his official visit to Boise the weekend of the Broncos’ Oct. 24 win over Wyoming.

Shaw moved from Georgia to Las Vegas earlier this year, and was already on the recruiting radar back East. He has reported offers from North Carolina, Cincinnati, Arizona State, Washington, UNLV and Nevada, among others.
