The 6-foot-6 Lawrence, thought-about the seemingly No. 1 choose in subsequent spring’s NFL draft, stated he hasn’t dominated out returning to Clemson for an additional 12 months as a substitute of going professional.
“My mindset has been that I will transfer on,” Lawrence stated Tuesday. “However who is aware of? There’s a number of issues that might occur.”
On the forefront could possibly be which NFL staff is in line to draft Lawrence. Proper now, that is the New York Jets, who’re 0-7 and the league’s solely winless staff.
“For me, it is out of my management,” Jets quarterback Sam Darnold said last week about the potential of the Jets choosing Lawrence with the No. 1 choose. “I am right here to do my greatest and assist this staff win video games.”
Lawrence, from Cartersville, Georgia, has a 31-1 document as a beginning school quarterback and has the top-ranked Tigers (6-0) in line for a sixth consecutive ACC title and journey to the Faculty Soccer Playoff.
Lawrence is scheduled to graduate with a bachelor’s diploma in advertising in December.
“Regardless of the place I’m going — whether or not that is throughout the nation or whether or not it is near residence, whether or not I keep one other 12 months — we’ll work it out,” Lawrence stated.
