2014 tight end Matt Lawler of Ramona High School picked up his first offer from San Diego State last week, but this weekend he could be found on the hardwood playing in the Pangos Sweet 16 with Top Gun Coastal Elite.

The Aztecs were the first to extend a scholarship offer, but don't expect them to be the last. "I've got Boise State coming down next week and Washington State too," Lawler said. At 6'6" 220 pounds, Lawler is a big target for the Bulldogs across the middle of the field.

The Aztecs may have an advantage in his recruitment because they are the hometown team, but that may not be the only reason. "I have a best friend down there and I'm looking forward to seeing him," Lawler said speaking about current Aztec offensive lineman and Ramona High School grad Kwayde Miller.

Lawler has yet to make a "visit" to the school but hopes to do so in the near future. "I haven't made any plans, but I wanna go down there and check out the facilities and see what's up," Lawler said, "I have a brother down there, so I kind of know the school."

Lawler said the strongest attribute of his playing style is definitely his height but added, "I need to gain some weight; my body can put on some weight. I'm working on that right now. And I need to get faster, that's another big thing."

Having an offer from the hometown team is a nice option, but Lawler is nowhere near a decision, "Right now I'm gonna wait a little bit and see what comes, but it would be nice to stay local."
