DE Shaquille Lawson Profile
And that means the Tigers' defensive end group will receive immediate shot to the arm. In the meantime, Lawson has work to do at the Chatham, Va., prep school.
"It's going good. I have class every day and we grind on the football field. It's not bad," Lawson told CUTigers in a recent interview.
To qualify for Clemson, Lawson has to make an A in one of the four classes he's currently taking -- Algebra II, Probability and Stats, Reading and English for College Bound.
"It's different, because I'm used to going to school with girls and this is an all boys' school. It's kind of hard to adjust to, and wear uniforms," Lawson said.
But he doesn't mind the military aspect.
"I kind of enjoy the military. I'm used to getting up now. The first couple of weeks, I wasn't used to getting up. But, now, I'm getting used to it. We march. I like the marching a little bit. It's not bad," Lawson said.
The football isn't bad either.
Lawson has some pretty tough competition facing him in practice. Alabama offensive tackle signee Brandon Hill and three-star Sunny Odogwu have, according to Lawson, "just makes me better every day."
Earlier this fall, Dan Brooks and Charlie Harbison visited Hargrave to check in on Lawson and fellow Clemson signee Cordrea Tankersley.
"I talk to coach [Marion] Hobby. He's just telling me to get my weight down a little bit. He's ready for me to come and expects me to play next year during spring ball," Lawson said.
Through seven games, Lawson has 60 tackles and 13 sacks.
He and Tankersley will head to Clemson for an official visit later this fall. That trip will be either for the weekend of the N.C. State game or the South Carolina game.
