Clemson’s five-star quarterback commit returned to action this week – and he didn’t disappoint – in leading Cartersville (Ga.) to a 41-7 win in a battle of unbeatens.

Lawrence once again did his part in putting away an opponent early, connecting on 14-of-17 first-half throws with three passing touchdowns. He added another score on the ground to lead Cedartown (Ga.) 38-0 at the half.

The 6-foot-6 No. 1-rated QB totaled over 300 passing yards for a second time this season and has topped 1,500 yards through five games.

Lawrence is completing 71.7 percent of his passes with 15 touchdowns to one interception.

Kendrick was an efficient 18-of-23 passing for 241 yards, including a 68-yarder in one of his two touchdown throws. Kendrick is completing 71.2 percent of his throws with 11 passing touchdowns (16 total scores).

Xavier Thomas – 5-star DE; Mike Jones Jr. – 4-star OLB IMG Academy (Fla.)

Playing their first game since Sept. 2 due to weather cancellations, IMG Academy returned to the gridiron in a battle of strong Florida programs.

Going into the game, Thomas had registered 12 tackles (two for loss) and a sack, while Jones Jr. had 11 stops and four for loss (IMG hasn’t updated stats through three games).

Kyler McMichael – 4-star Greater Atlanta Christian CB

McMichael continued a strong senior campaign in the backfield with three touchdowns – including a 62-yarder – in a 47-7 win over Union County (Ga.). He’s up to seven rushing scores through five games in a 4-1 start for the No. 3-ranked Spartans.
