Trevor Lawrence officially ended Rivals with his savage takedown of the recruiting service trying to troll him.
On the day of Trevor Lawrence’s pro day, Rivals decided to poke fun at the presumptive No. 1 overall pick’s inability to hit a net … when he was a teenager … in 2015.
The Cartersville, Georgia native became a five-star recruit out of high school, committing to nearby Clemson University to play his college football. Three years later, Lawrence quarterbacked the Tigers to three ACC Championships, three College Football Playoff berths and a 2018 national title. While he was never really a “net guy” to begin with, Lawrence just made Rivals regret hitting send.
As long as Trevor Lawrence can hit NFL receivers in stride, he will be fine
Lawrence will be in all likelihood the No. 1 pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2021 NFL Draft. Touted as the next Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning or John Elway by some, his college coach Dabo Swinney thinks he is Stephen Curry when it comes to throwing a football. It sure looks pretty coming out of his right arm, does it not? It is safe to say that Lawrence outgrew his net woes.
Even as Lawrence’s football journey progresses, two things have remained true. He always had undeniable arm talent, and for as long as we have heard of him nationally, he has had flowing blonde locks we can all be jealous of. So while Rivals ceases to be no more after Lawrence promptly canceled them on Friday, we can reflect on the glow-up Lawrence has experienced.
Lawrence is proof you can still have five-stars next to your name and not hit a net as a teenager.
