Lawrence has LSU in Top 4

It seems as if LSU is mentioned by just about all of the nation's top receivers so it should come as no surprise that 4-star prospect T.J. Lawrence has the Tigers in his top four.

Two-way star T.J. Lawrence puts up big numbers on both sides of the ball as both a receiver and safety.


The Lakeland, Fla., product pulled down 52 catches for 1,245 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior. He also used his 6-1, 195 pound frame to make 50 tackles, 28 of which were solo, and to pick off five passes.


It's obvious that Lawrence can play on both sides of the ball but what isn't obvious is which side he will play on at the next level.


"I actually don't know what I'll play in college," he said. "But, I like playing receiver because I like to get my hands on the ball and make plays. I can use my play-making ability and vision to help a lot of teams."



So far, Lawrence has received 12 offers with four schools sitting at the top of his list.


"I'd have to say that Boise State, LSU, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech are at the top right now," he said.


The four schools that Lawrence mentioned have some similarities but they also have some distinct differences.


"I like the whole program at LSU," said Lawrence. "I like their offense and that they're always in the top 10 every year. But all the schools are different in ways. LSU and Florida have great offenses and defenses and Boise is really great on offense. They are starting to really recruit some good talent."


Lawrence said that while all the schools are recruiting him pretty hard but Boise State and Virginia Tech seem to be putting out the most effort.


"I'm looking for a school where I like the coaches," said Lawrence. "They have to be cool because that's a big plus. I want to be comfortable talking with them and don't want to just get blown off if I have a question."


Note** Lawrence said he has plans to visit some schools this summer, but that at this point, only Boise State has a set date for a 7-on-7 camp. He has, however, already visited Ole Miss for a 7-on-7 camp as well as a Nike Camp at Florida and Central Florida's junior day.
