As a senior, earned Second-Team All-American honors from the Football Writers Association and third-team accolades from the Associated Press. The First-Team All-Pac-12 selection was also named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year by Athlon Sports and was the recipient of Stanford’s Jim Reynolds Award given to the individual who showed the most leadership on the team in 2013.
Led the team for the third straight season with a career-high 109 tackles, while adding 5.5 sacks, 3 FFs and 2 FRs.

04/15/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Linebackers: Shayne Skov, Stanford, 6-2, 245, 4.95, 3-4...Although NFLDraftscout.com ratings have Skov outside the top 100, the expectation here is he will go earlier. And this opinion has nothing to do with knowing his agent, Steve Baker, since he was a newcomer working for some other agent back in the 1980s. Skov is a complex person and athlete who showed first-round ability in 2010 before blowing out a knee in 2011. Last year, he finally played back to form as an enforcer with brutally strong hands and a knack at timing blitzes and causing turnovers. What he lacks in graceful agility he makes up for with a rudely abrupt style of play. Frankly: Doubters be damned. Draft him. Pay him. Play him. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
04/15/14 - Five players who should be on the San Francisco 49ers' draft radar: ILB Shayne Skov, Stanford: When healthy, the 49ers may possess the league's most fearsome quartet of linebackers, but the horrific knee injury suffered by Bowman in the NFC Championship game and a gradual leveling of play in recent years from Patrick Willis could make ILB a surprisingly high priority on draft-day. Skov plays with the physicality and instincts to fit into this scheme and obviously Harbaugh would know him well due to their time together on The Farm. What Skov may lack in straight-line speed, he more than makes up for with efficient movement and explosive, timely hitting. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/26/14 - 2014 Pro Days: Combine-snub Ben Gardner surprise star at Stanford...Prior to the workout, scouts received word that one of Stanford's most well-known defenders - passionate inside linebacker Shayne Skov - would not be participating. He pulled a hamstring on Monday in preparation for the workout. He'll hold a personal Pro Day on April 21. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/01/14 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Linebacker Shayne Skov helps anchor the Stanford defense that has allowed just 18.6 points a game this season and less than 90 yards rushing a game. He has 100 tackles and is much like Bullough in the sense that he gets the Stanford defense in the right position and knows the opposing offense as well as any player on the field. - The Sports Xchange
