Deontae Lawson

2021 LB Deontae Lawson (6-4 208 of Mobile, AL is already a hotly pursued prospect and Wednesday he announced the top 15 schools he’s focused on at this point. Clemson is on that list. Lawson visited Clemson earlier this season for the first time for the Texas A&M game. Since then the Tigers have been heavy recruiters with Lemanski Hall leading the charge. From his visit and conversations with Hall, Lawson has found things to like about Clemson.

“The way the coaches communicate with me and they treat me good,” Lawson said. “And there are awesome facilities up there. They are also a successful football team. I feel like I can fit in there good.  They like me speed and I can rush the passer and drop in coverage, and that’s similar to what they do, so I’d be a great for it.”

As a junior Lawson recorded 89 tackles with 16 tackles for loss and 6 sacks.

Along with Clemson, Lawson this season has been to Auburn, Alabama and LSU and he’s returning to Auburn this Saturday for the Georgia game.

“I grew up an Auburn fan but that’s not going to affect my decision,” said Lawson who also has Texas A&M, Nebraska, Ole Miss, TCU, Oregon, Alabama, Oklahoma, LSU, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi State on his short list.

Lawson said Clemson, Alabama, Auburn and Mississippi State have been recruiting him the hardest though everyone on his short list have been working him. He does not have a timetable on a decision.
