Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was impressed by quarterback Trevor Lawrence's performance in the Fiesta Bowl win over the Buckeyes.
"Trevor Lawrence, I had no idea. You just didn't see him do some of the things (doesn't finish thought). I think he is a great thrower. He ran away from Baron Browning, and I asked one of the recruiting guys at Ohio State, and I said oh my gosh, how courageous he was his toughness. It was one of the best performances I have seen from a quarterback as far as toughness and making plays with his legs when he had to. That was an incredible performance."
Lawrence was 18-for-33 passing for 259 yards and two passing touchdowns.
