The writing seemed to be on the wall on this one. The Twitter wall, that is. Shaw seemed to allude to his imminent commitment just two days ago.

Listed at around 6'4 and 225 lbs, Shaw hails from Legacy High School in North Las Vegas, Nevada. He had previously named Nevada as his front runner while also boasting offers from UNC, Washington, Cincinnati, Duke, Wake Forest, Arizona State, and Washington State to name a few. Obviously, the Broncos were the right fit after an apparently great visit last weekend for the Wyoming game.
Absolutely loved my official visit to Boise state this past weekend! #ATF Bleed blue pic.twitter.com/UVYqFUZzPZ— 〰Derriyon Shaw〰 (@_ShAww80) October 30, 2015
Shaw is a huge pickup for the Broncos, who will be graduating quite a few on the line after this season. Whether he plays right away or not remains to be seen, but I think the opportunity could be there. Either way, we got a good one. Go Broncos!
