DE Shaquille Lawson Profile
And junior defensive end Shaq Lawson could be next in line. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound defensive end picked up an offer from Clemson on Thursday.
"It was kind of shocking," he told CUTigers. "I was doing my homework when [Daniel coach Randy Robinson] came in there and told me to come in his office. He told me the news. I felt good after that."
His first offer, it was a moment that he's been waiting on for quite some time. And he nearly committed on the spot.
"Today, I was thinking about [committing]. But I'm just going to give it a little time. I'm going to commit before my junior year is over," Lawson said.
And he said, "Clemson is on top."
"It's a defensive school. They send a lot of guys to the pros," Lawson said. "It's great down here. I'd like to be home."
N.C. State, Georgia Tech and East Carolina round out the schools that he is also considering, but Clemson is his only offer.
Lawson met new Tiger defensive ends coach Marion Hobby when he was on campus for last weekend's basketball game.
"He's a good coach. It looks like he knows his stuff. He reminds me of coach [Chris] Rumph," Lawson said.
"We were talking about basketball. He didn't know I was that big. He thought I was smaller," Lawson said.
On the hardwood, Lawson is averaging 17 points and 11 rebounds for Daniel, the defending AAA state champions. On Friday, Daniel plays Southside in the second round of the playoffs.
As a junior on the gridiron, he had 100 tackles, 13 sacks and two touchdowns.
Scout.com rates Lawson as a three-star prospect.
