The much anticipated announcement by Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence rolled out Wednesday morning, several hours after his runner-up finish in the Heisman Trophy voting. Lawrence will take his football, big arm and long locks to the NFL in 2021, most likely landing in Jacksonville as the #1 pick in this spring’s NFL Draft. “Looking back on it, I hope my legacy at Clemson is that I was a great teammate and a great person overall,” Lawrence said in his announcement video. “More than football, more than how I played each, it’s just how I treated people.”
Lawrence passed for 10,098 yards, 90 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in his three Clemson seasons. His quarterback rating was 164.3 This season he was the ACC Player of the Year and the Offensive Player of the Year. He leaves as the winningest quarterback in Clemson history (34-2 as a starter), and became the third Clemson quarterback to surpass 10-thousand career passing yards.
