Committed: Shawn Epiu to Shaw University


Senior, Shawn Epiu has signed to further his athletic and academic career at Shaw University.

Shaw University is located in Raleigh, North Carolina. When asked about why he chose Shaw he said, “The coaching staff really seemed to care, whereas some places it just seemed like people on the team were just a number. Shaw is also close to home which was another reason I chose to go there.” He was excited to finally have made his decision and know where he is going to school.

As for his recruiting process he informs us that it was a lot of traveling. Most of the schools he visited were in Virginia which was a lot of long car rides for him. What he did was he emailed a lot of Coaches and sending out his film to them. Shaw University got back to him instantly, showing their interest in him. For him, sending out his film was better than waiting around for Coaches to reach out.

He will continue to prepare himself to be ready to play at the next level. He said “For my position you need to have high lift number and I am not exactly up there yet so I will be lifting a lot in order to catch up and be able to compete at the next level.”

Congrats to Shawn and we are wishing him the best of luck in his journey as he prepare to go play at Shaw University!
