According to a report from Evan Daniels, Illinois transfer Mike Shaw is headed to Bradley.

Shaw, a former top 100 recruit, decided to leave Illinois due to a lack of playing time.

“At the end of the day, I’m trying to play,” Shaw told Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago. “I came to college to get an education and play basketball. It wasn’t looking too good here to play and get as much playing time as I thought I would.”

Shaw, who was recruited to Illinois by Bruce Weber, will have two years of eligibility remaining after redshirting 2013-2014, unless he can somehow manage to get a waiver from the NCAA to play immediately.
