Georgia offered one of the top 2018 quarterbacks in the country on Sunday... Cartersville QB Trevor Lawrence. The rising sophomore competed on Saturday night at Dawg Night in Athens along with Georgia commits Jacob Eason and Bailey Hockman. That duo being in Athens won't make a difference to Lawrence, who says that competition is a part of the life of a college quarterback.
"I can tell you I'm not scared to compete so that won't scare me off," he said. "I think Georgia's a great school for a QB. Bailey and Jacob are both really good. But I think I can compete with anyone so if that's where I decide to go I think I could do it."
Lawrence grew up a Tennessee fan, and left without an offer form the Bulldogs on Saturday night. Those close to Lawrence said that was a confusing move for the rising sophomore to understand. But Mark Richt reached out on Sunday after dinner with the word that Georgia would, in fact, offer. Not only that, but he was their top target in the class of 2018.
"Coach Richt and Schottenheimer told me that I'm their guy for my class and they want to keep building the relationship," he said.
"Lawrence has prototypical size and a big arm," Scout National Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons said. "He is still young, but Lawrence has a chance to be one of the top prospects in the country for 2018."
Simmons indicated that Lawrence is on target to be named a 5-star prospect in due time.
