Looks like we recruited Fran Tarkenton

Looking at Lawrence's highlight films on youtube. If you're old enough to remember Tarkenton, when he played for the Minnesota Vikings, he would often scramble around and make something out of nothing. This guy will be something.And when I was a student at Clemson, we thought Mike O'Cain was a pretty good quarterback! Different world!

Tarkenton was listed at 6' and that was generous. Lawrence is a legit 6'5". If he can scramble like Tark we've got us a great one.

Fathers family is from a very small town in southeast Minnesota. Mom's side is full of Clemson alumni and I graduated 09.

I was so glad to see a few tigers head to MN this past year... Now if only we had an o-line...

6'5" Marc Wilson at BYU in the late 70s


Hopefully he is way better.

Wilson played for the Raiders when I was young and lived in LA. He was just okay in the NFL. Sounds like this kid is a once in a decade player.

Tarkenton is a whole lot shorter than Lawrence***
