Lawshe said that he is currently hearing from Tennessee, Duke, South Carolina, North Carolina, Wake Forest and NC State, but says that it is the Blue Devils that are recruiting him harder than any other school.
The Mallard Creek lineman was able to take a handful of visits this season, including a trip to Durham to watch Duke battle it out against Wake Forest.
"That visit was great," Lawshe said of his trip to Durham. "It was a good atmosphere and I love the coaches. It seems like a family place and I think I could fit in there. The head coach treats people like they are his family and I think I could fit in."
Lawshe says that one of the biggest draws for the Blue Devil program is their coaching staff. In particular, he is a big fan of the way that the Blue Devil coaches seem to mix work and play.
"The coaches told me that if I came there, we are going to work hard every day. It will be fun, but when you get on the field, it is going to be business. I really like that."
Lawshe said that he is definitely planning to make at least one return trip to Durham in the near future. While he is still searching for his first offer, he just recently sent out his junior film for evaluation.
Lawshe will continue making visits to many of his top schools over the course of the next few months, but he already knows what he is looking for out of a program.
"The biggest factors in my decision will be the location so my family can come see me play, academics and finding a close-knit team."
