Lawrence was hosted on the trip by early enrollee Tre Jackson. "One thing I know is that my mom really loved the visit and is very happy that we are going there for college."

Nashville defensive tackle Michael Sawyers was one of the recruits on the visit that Lawrence got to know better. "He was a great guy to talk with and I got to talk to him about coming to Georgia Tech. I feel he is really looking hard at Georgia Tech." Austin likes the odds of getting Sawyers to come to Georgia Tech.

Touring the school, attending the basketball game, and spending time with the current players were all part of the visit for Lawrence. "We just had a great all around good time." Austin especially liked seeing what a typical day was like for a student-athlete.

A visit with Coach Ted Roof was also part of the visit for Lawrence. "Coach Roof told us to come to Georgia Tech with the idea that no one will out work us." Early playing time is a very distinct possibility for Lawrence. Look for Lawrence and his brother to compete for the nickel postion and to possibily be on the field at the same time.

"This is something both of us are looking forward to make happen. We've always worked hard and it is paying off now and it will continue to pay off." Lawrence also met with Coach Joe Speed to talk about the basic packages that they'll get to study once they've signed their letters of intent.

Lawrence is staying in shape by running track. "I plan on being ready once I get there in June." Now that the offical visit is over and signing day is around the corner, Lawrence is excited to have everything behind him. "I can't wait to get to Georgia Tech. I know this is the place my brother and I want to be for college." Top Stories
