Lawrence Timmons

Linebacker

Wilson High School (Florence, SC)

6'2", 225 lbs.

SCVarsity.com #7 Player in South Carolina

Selected to 2003 Shrine Bowl Game



Lawrence Timmons had a solid year for Wilson, which finished the season with
an 8-4 record and advanced to the second round of the 3-A state playoffs
before being eliminated by Dillon.


With his high school career now over, Timmons can concentrate more
on which college he will continue his playing days at. Although Clemson
is a school that he has a slight interest in, Timmons lists his top five
schools as North Carolina, Florida State, Florida, Maryland, and
Tennessee.

A North Carolina coach visited Timmons on Monday, and he might make
an official visit to Chapel Hill this weekend. Following that, he will visit
Florida State on January 10th, Florida on the 17th, Maryland on the
24th, and Tennessee during the first weekend in February.

"I am not leaning towards any school in particular," Timmons said. "I
will be ready to make my choice after all my visits are over with."


Clemson assistant Dabo Swinney is recruiting Timmons for the Tigers.


Recruiting Analyst Mickey Plyler on Timmons:
"Timmons might be one of the five best prospects in South Carolina. This is a prospect that has it all. Timmons is a good looking linebacker that has so many positives. Coaches love the way he drops into coverage and the way he plays in space. Timmons is a terrific athlete. There are not too many prospects that have offers from schools like Michigan, Tennessee and Florida. Timmons has created a ton of interest from college coaches that I talk to and this recruiting battle should be very interesting as the in-state programs try to close the borders on this prospect."
