Cartersville (Ga.) five-star quarterback Trevor Lawrence knew about a week before he committed to Clemson on Dec. 15 that it is the right school for him.
“Everybody there, the people there and the vibe that you get there, it felt like home,” Lawrence said at The Opening Charlotte regional last weekend. “I knew that was the place for me.”
Asked what stands out most to him about Clemson, Lawrence couldn’t pinpoint just one thing.
He said Clemson has everything he looks for and wants in a school.
“The people there, they’re great, and the facility is obviously great,” Lawrence said. “They’ve got everything there that I want, so it’s awesome.”
While schools such as Alabama and Georgia are still trying to recruit Lawrence — both Nick Saban and Kirby Smart stopped by Cartersville recently during the spring evaluation period — he remains firm in his commitment.
Lawrence has a strong relationship with Clemson’s coaching staff, and hopes to visit again this summer after most recently attending the Tigers’ spring game last month.
“It’s really good,” Lawrence said of his relationship with the coaches. “I talk to them once every other week or more than that. I’ll probably go up there once or twice this summer, so it’s good.”
Lawrence, the consensus top offensive prospect in the 2018 class, is expected to graduate in December and enroll early at Clemson in January.
“I’m really excited,” he said. “I have one more semester of school, then I’ll be there.”
