Lawler making plays in Texas

Kenny Lawler from Upland (Calif.) is part of the B2G seven on seven tournament team that is in Dallas this weekend at SMU. Big Red Report was out to check out the Nebraska prospect and ask him about seven on seven, Nebraska camp and recruiting in general.

It doesn't come around all the time so when a national combine is near where you live you get out and see it. Next Level Athlete brought their tournament to Dallas this 4th of July weekend and Kenny Lawler was part of the B2G team.

"We just lost, but we'll bounce back," Lawler said. "We'll be alright. It's a good tournament, national tournament."

Many wonder what the purpose of these tournaments is. While there is a competitive side to them it's also about doing the right things on the field and extending them over to the regular season according to Lawler.

"In seven on seven we try to get our footwork right, get our routes right and just get out there and get some more work in during the summer. That work will follow over to the season."

Another thing that Lawler noted about select seven on seven is the competition level. These assembled teams have better players as a whole then you find for a typical high school and that speeds up the game.

"The speed of the game is faster too. A lot of high school teams don't have many talented players, but when you get here it's just all all-stars from around the nation on these teams."

Lawler is in Dallas this weekend, but just a few weeks ago he was up in Nebraska for summer camp. Lawler says that there were many things that he really liked about Lincoln.

"The visit to Lincoln was nice. I liked the coaches, the facilities and the program. I got to talk to Tom Osborne while I was there. I just had a nice time in Lincoln."

Lawler still considers himself an Arizona State commit, but has been opening saying that he is still evaluating his options. The Huskers have made quite the impression on him.

"Nebraska is up there on my list. They see me as a wide out, not really as a slot, so we will see how that goes."

Lawler went on to say that not a lot has changed with his recruiting. He mentioned that he recently picked up an offer from Colorado and also that he still plans on taking all five of his official visits.
