Initial Scouting Reports, High School Classes of 2010 and 2011
August 1, 2008
Another of the rare 2011 recruits we’ve decided to evaluate this early, Mike Shaw is widely considered one of the top 3 or 5 players in his class. On first glance, it’s not hard to tell why. Shaw has excellent physical tools for the small forward position—size, frame and athleticism, and the budding perimeter skills needed to play on the perimeter as well. Shaw is a lanky guy, but he’s extremely smooth and can really jump as well. He has really nice form on his shot and can stick a 3-pointer with solid consistency. He can also put the ball on the floor and make his way to the basket, even if his ball-handling is just so-so. Shaw’s feel for the game is obviously very good, he’s not selfish at all and is obviously a very good teammate. He competes on both ends of the floor and made a few intriguing plays rebounding the ball in traffic and coming up with a very reactive block. Shaw wants to play defense and will even stick his nose in for a charge.

There’s no question that Shaw is still a really raw and inexperienced player at this point. It’s not hard to see what people like about him, though—unless he continues to grow, he’s obviously a perimeter player despite standing 6-8, and has a really nice framework of skills and physical tools to build upon. If he keeps improving over the next few years, he could develop into a very interesting prospect.
