Lawrence Talks Wolverines

Wake Forest (N.C.) 2016 DT Dexter Lawrence updates his recruitment.

Dexter Lawrence just finished his sophomore year at Wake Forest (N.C.) High, and already holds notable offers from North Carolina, South Carolina and Clemson, to name a few. He also received an offer from Michigan back in February, and while there is not set visit to come up to Ann Arbor, he says he is hoping to visit sometime in the near future.

"I plan on visiting but I don't know when yet," Lawrence said. "I'll be looking at their facilities and weight room. I want to check out their education part. I want to learn more about their history, like their drafted defensive lineman. Their championships, because I want to go somewhere and win."

Lawrence's head recruiter is U-M assistant Roy Manning.

"He is very cool," said Lawrence on his relationship with Manning. "He stays into it on the field as a coach."

At 6-foot-5, 290-pounds, Lawrence is rated the No. 6 DT and a four-star prospect in the latest 2016 Scout.com player rankings. And while he already holds a eight scholarship offers, he admits it's too early to start naming favorites in his recruitment.

"Right now they are all equally in weight until I start going on my visits to see how the coaches are," said Lawrence."

In the meantime, he says he is focused on improving his game before his junior season this summer.

"We're just doing summer workouts for our high school," Lawrence said. "So I am doing those. And I am playing a little AAU basketball."
