Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence officially declares for the NFL Draft
We all knew the news was coming, but now it’s official. Trevor Lawrence’s time at Clemson has come to an end.
On Wednesday morning, Lawrence released a video from his personal Twitter account, announcing that he will forgo his final year of eligibility with the Tigers and start preparing for the 2021 NFL Draft. Clemson’s 2020 season came to an end on New Year’s Day, after falling 49-28 to Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl.
Lawrence was a Heisman Trophy finalist this season, leading Clemson to a 10-2 record. In his three seasons as a starter with the Tigers, he lost just three games and led the program to three College Football Playoff appearances, two title game appearances and one national championship.

Lawrence ends his time at Clemson with 10,098 passing yards and 90 touchdowns with a career completion rate at 66.6%. He also added 948 rushing yards in three seasons, along with 18 touchdowns on the ground.
Lawrence is considered by many to be the top quarterback prospect available in the 2021 NFL Draft, though Justin Fields could give him a run for his money. Either way, the Clemson QB will be a Top 5 selection this spring, and the opportunity is too good to pass up.
