At 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, the Tampa Hillsborough standout initially picked Miami over offers from schools like Florida, Ohio State, Nebraska, and Tennessee.
Lawson took an official visit to Virginia Tech last month and has been in close contact with the coaches at USF. The Bulls are believed to be the new leader here.
