The Coastal Carolina University men’s basketball team will welcome in Jaylen Shaw as part of its 2014 recruiting class, head coach Cliff Ellis announced on Friday. “We are extremely excited Jaylen has decided to join our program at Coastal Carolina University,” said Ellis. “He was one of our most sought after recruits a year ago before signing with South Carolina. He fits the mold for what we look for in a combo guard. After sitting out a year he will be able to step right in and fill the void left by Josh Cameron who will be graduating. Coach (Frank) Martin spoke very highly of Jaylen and said he had the potential to be a great player and wished him luck in the future.” Jaylen Shaw Position: Guard Height: 6-0 Previous School: University of South Carolina Shaw is a combo guard from Hartsville, S.C., and will join the Chanticleers as a sophomore.

He was named the AgSouth Athlete of the Week at USC on Nov. 25 following an 84-72 victory over Florida International. He hit 6-of-10 attempts from the field, including 4-of-7 from 3-point range, while dishing five assists and adding 16 points in the victory.
