UPDATE: Lawrence is a guard we always liked. He had to recover from a tough injury that hurt his chances of landing a scholarship a year ago. However, he's good enough for some division one programs to take a look at him this season at Apex.
A postgraduate year should help him forge some offers and interest.

STRENGTHS IN JERRELL LAWRENCE'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Has a high basketball IQ and uses his mental facilities to break down a defense. He has long arms which enables him to deflect balls on the defensive side.
AREAS TO IMPROVE IN INDIVIDUAL GAME: His frame will need strengthening and the ability to drain the jumper consistently would add more diversity to his game.
