DE Shaquille Lawson Profile
Lawson, who needed an A in the course to qualify this fall, made the grade. His transcript will be sent off to the NCAA Clearinghouse when the class ends on Friday.
Once he's given the OK by the NCAA, Lawson will move across town to Clemson.
"It's sort of like a dream that I'm actually starting college next week," he said. "I've got to go out there and work hard, be ready for practice."
At Clemson, Lawson will join fellow Daniel High School graduates DeShawn Williams and DeAndre Hopkins.
"Clemson likes to recruit hometown kids. Most of them are from Daniel, and Clemson wants to get all of them," Lawson said.
The 6-foot-4, 260-pound defensive end will by competing for a spot in the two-deep depth chart when he arrives to campus, and he may avoid a redshirt.
"Coaches have been telling me that I'm possibly playing," Lawson said. "I've been hearing a lot of rumors that I was going to play this year."
He hopes to contribute in some way this fall.
"My main goal is to come in with a focus, get ready for the playbook and work hard, do my part to help the team out," Lawson said.
As a senior, he recorded 99 tackles, 23 tackles for loss, nine sacks and forced five fumbles. As a junior, he had 100 tackles and 13 sacks.
