Shirreffs fits OC James Coley's mold as a tall QB, standing 6'6" 200lbs. He is incredibly accurate (maybe the most accurate HS QB I've ever seen), and has a live arm. He adds quality depth to the QB position, joining Malik Rosier, Gray Crow, and walk-ons Isaac Hoza and Vincent Testaverde at the position.

A 4.0 student, Shirreffs chose Miami over Columbia and the Virginia Military Institute.

Welcome to the U, Evan!!!
