Shaw has played well in limited snaps as a reserve safety this season and also looked good during his temporary switch to corner in fall camp.

Armstead listed Notre Dame, Auburn and Arkansas as three possible destinations. He has a meeting with USC administrators on Monday to review the transfer request.

His reasons for transferring revolve around undisclosed medical issues which have resulted in Armstead not being cleared to play by the USC doctors.
