Lawrence is the most-hyped quarterback recruit to come out of the college ranks since Andrew Luck. All he did in college was lead the Tigers to a national title as a freshman and then to the playoffs in the next two seasons.
Now he's off to the NFL, where the Jacksonville Jaguars will make him the first overall pick in the 2021 draft. Earlier this offseason, Lawrence announced he wouldn't be attending the draft.
Instead, he'll be at home, surrounded by family and friends - including his new wife Marissa. The couple were engaged just before the 2020 college football season kicked off and were married earlier this month.
The couple has been together since they both went off to college. Mowry played soccer at Anderson University in South Carolina.
Last year, Lawrence opened up on what it was like asking his best friend to marry him.
“It was awesome. I was super nervous. I told Marissa we were doing graduation pictures,” Lawrence told ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi. “We went out on the field. … We were out on the field and we had one of our team photographers taking our pictures. It seems a little bit cliche but Clemson in general has meant so much to both of us and our story.”
In just a few more hours, Lawrence will experience perhaps the second best night of his life - behind his marriage, of course.
