Watch List DB Austin talks favorites 

December, 31, 2012
ATLANTA -- ESPN Watch List cornerback Lawrence Austin (Barnesville, Ga./ Lamar County) suited up at slot receiver for the West team at the Rising Seniors Bowl practice on Sunday. When he looked up from the line of scrimmage, he saw his twin brother Lance Austin lining up to cover him on the play. This is not unusual except for the fact that both normally play cornerback for Lamar County.

Lawrence and Lance Austin both have offers from South Carolina and Marshall so far. Other programs are checking the twins out as well.
