It didn't take long for Trevor Lawrence to make himself a household name in the sports world. The former five-star recruit quickly ascended to new heights in his first season with the Clemson Tigers.

Lawrence led Clemson to a dominating win over Alabama in the national championship. His overall production during the College Football Playoff had NFL scouts raving about his potential.

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. went as far as to say that Lawrence would've been the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft if he was eligible.

There have been several star quarterbacks in the past, but Lawrence is on pace to separate himself from the pack. With at least two more seasons of college football remaining, the sky is the limit for the Georgia native.

While the Tigers should continue to find themselves in the postseason with Lawrence under center, there is always the possibility that Clemson settles for a non-playoff bowl game.

Despite the increase in number of top prospects sitting out bowl games to avoid risking an injury, Lawrence has made it clear that he won't do that.

From ESPN:

"Sitting out bowl games and stuff, that'll never be me," Lawrence said. "You won't have to worry about writing those stories."

Lawrence didn't stop there with talking about his future, as the star gunslinger admit that he's aiming to be the best quarterback of all time.

Many scouts have Lawrence as the best pro-style quarterback since Andrew Luck.

We'll see if Lawrence can live up to all the hype surrounding him as he enters his sophomore season.
