Swinney discusses commitment of 5-star DT

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney was asked about Dexter Lawrence's 5-star commitment on Monday by the media before football practice.

"I can't wait for spring practice to get here," Swinney said holding Lawrence's financial aid agreement in his hand. "He is an unbelievable talent. He is our kind of guy. He will show up here as a mid-year and be ready to go. This is Christmas coming early."

Swinney is allowed to discuss the commitment since Lawrence has signed his financial aid agreement. The 5-star prospect will enroll at Clemson in January.

Lawrence is an elite prospect and a consensus 5-star recruit by all the major recruiting services and will be playing in the 2016 Army All-American game on Jan. 9th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. He was also the News Observer Player of the Year in 2014.

He finished his senior season with 91 tackles, 13 sacks and 21 tackles for loss. His team was undefeated and was ranked #1 in the state before losing in the second round of the playoffs.

As a junior, Lawrence accounted for 55 tackles, ten sacks, 25 tackles for loss, three blocked kicks and three forced fumbles. In his sophomore campaign, he had 19 tackles for loss.
