According to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings, Lawrence is the No. 1 recruit in the nation, regardless of position. He’s the No. 1 quarterback in the class of 2018 and the No. 1 player in the state of Georgia.
Hunter Johnson, the No. 2 quarterback of the 2017 class is already committed to Clemson as well. This should make for a very interesting quarterback competition, and gives the Tigers a wealth of options.
If Deshaun Watson leaves Clemson for the NFL, it looks like the Tigers shouldn’t suffer much of a letdown from the quarterback position.
Ranking 17 New Head Coaching Hires
17. Jay Norvell – Nevada
Last Stop: Arizona State wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator
Head Coaching Record: 0-0
If Jay Norvell’s name sounds familiar, it is likely from his brief tenure as Texas play caller under Charlie Strong. He was given the reins in early 2015, replacing Shawn Watson, but left for Arizona State after one year in Texas. Before his stint in Austin, Norvell spent years as Co-OC and wide receivers coach at Oklahoma.
Norvell has a ton of experience, with 21 years as a position coach or coordinator at Power Five schools, and another six as an NFL assistant. The main problem: recently, it hasn’t seemed that schools are all that desparate to keep him, and in the case of Oklahoma and Texas, the offenses have improved after he’s left.
