After high school, Shavers attended Independence Community College in Independence, Kansas where he played football. Shavers ran for just 235-yards on 64 carries with two touchdowns. With the staff at Independence making changes after the 2008 season, Shavers decided to transfer.
In 2009, Shavers transfered Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas. During the 2009 season at Tyler, Shavers redshirted due to his coach missing the out-of-state/transfer list. With the starting running back spot belonging to Don Brown, Shavers was worked out at defensive back just to get on the field. Shavers played in 6 of the Apaches 8 games during the 2010 season, receiving only 50 carries as the backup running back. Shavers productive season at Tyler netted him 2nd Team All-Conference honors.
