First official set for five-star DE

By Kipp Adams

Carl Lawson (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton), the No. 2 prospect in the country, has taken one trip in the last two months, an unofficial visit to Clemson back in November on the weekend that Auburn head coach Gene Chizik was fired. The 6-foot-2, 251-pound defensive end is set to take his first official visit this weekend.

"I set an official to Clemson," Lawson said. "I am interested and excited about visiting such a wonderful program such as Clemson."

The five-star prospect has not decommitted from Auburn, but has said over the last month that he is reevaluating his options as Signing Day draws near. He is also considering official visits to Ole Miss, Tennessee, USC and UNC.
