Javone Lawson came in this weekend as one of the mostly prized recruits visiting in a small group. The 6-0, 175-pound Lawson, along with Carencro High prospect Rickey Johnson were the main targets for the staff this weekend. Lawson made his decsion known Sunday at lunch,he committed to the Ragin'Cajuns.
"Jewell Ratliff and I spent a lot of time Saturday night talking about our final decision and we both wanted to come to UL, said Lawson." "I think the staff and the athletes that are already in the program were the biggest reasons for my commitment."
Lawson spent some time with his football host Friday night and met with other UL football athletes later that evening.
"Louis Lee was my host for the weekend, said Javone." "He talked about playing in the program,the UL fans and introduce me to some of the other guys in the program. I just had the opportunity to talk these guys and just absorb everything."
Lawson finished 2008 as the New Orleans metro area's leading receiver with 59 receptions for 897 yards and 16 touchdowns. Lawson is also an explosive return specialist and was named 2008 First Team 4A All-State kick returner. The all-state athlete had an early offer from Tulane and took a visit out to Ole Miss in November, but returned without an offer.
"They told me that they were filled and didn't have anything, said Lawson." "I heard from them several times after, but nothing really happened with them."
Lawson scored an 18 on the ACT recently, to become eligible for the 2009 season. His previous ACT score was a 16 taken in October.
