    Strelow kind of insinuated today on Mickey’s show that maybe Trevor Lawrence might just enroll and not sign. He didn’t say that specifically but it was a soft intro into the possibility

    Strelow seemed to just throw that out (I heard it) and when Mickey pressed, kind of made up reasons. He may be a good reporter and writer BUT he is MURDER to listen to on the radio. Lof of uhhhhhhhhhhs, ummmmmmms, and every 4th word is dragged out. Stick to the computer Paul.

    It’s been rumored for a while that Lawrence may not sign during the early period for whatever reason (keeping options open in case Scott/Elliot/Streeter leave).

    I don’t think anyone truly knows if he will or won’t. However, it’s unlikely he ends up enrolling anywhere other than Clemson at this point.

    To add to this - Mickey stated to Paul that the plan was to have as many as 11 players sign their letters on the 20th ... right? Paul responded with "uhhhhhhhhhhhh maybe not all, ummmmm maybe not Trevor Lawrence who may waaaaiiiitt and just enroll." Mickey asked why would he do that to which Paul said it could be for the Lawrence family to make 100% sure no one up and left after the 20th. He "may" want to wait to make sure since he could just as easily enroll in early January. Mickey pressed a little more to then hear Strelow say he may sign anyway and didnt see any reason he'd have a reason to change his mind. Was a bizarre back and forth.

    As I said:

    "Lawrence said recently that he wasn't sure if he was going to sign Dec. 20. Nothing to see there as far as his recruitment, and I think he will sign. If not, he'll just show up next month." - Paul

    It still feels like we will get him, but there is no reason for him not to sign that's anything but negative for clemson.

    Is it not obvious? Maybe you can tell me a plausible reason that it could be good for Clemson. Maybe he broke both of his hands and can't operate a writing instrument, but even that would be a negative since he plays quarterback.

    Can it not be somewhere in the middle? I don't see how it would be good for Clemson for him not to sign with us as soon as possible. That's pretty obvious. But I also don't think it means the sky is falling either. It sucks but it makes sense if he wants to make sure all the coaches he has bonded with are going to be there coaching him for the next year.

    Adam said it's negative for Clemson. If he signs early, he's 100% to Clemson. In any other scenario, there is a chance he doesn't ultimately sign even if it's still 99% that he signs with Clemson. Hence, it is negative. The magnitude of the negativity can be debated

    He is just looking out for his best interests.

    If I'm the #1 recruit in the nation and just watched what happened with coaching turnover this off season, why would I lock myself in somewhere just in case something does happen? There is no benefit in doing so when I could just enroll early without the paperwork.

    Come on, Sack. I said "it still feels like we will get him." It appears that all 3 of us agree unless you actually think there's not any negative aspect to this at all.

    If he's an early enrollee he should already be on campus for the National Championship, should we make it there, right?

    First day of classes is January 10th, so while he'd probably already be "on campus", he wouldn't be locked in yet.

    In the short term the tears will be very fun, though in the long term theyll probably get some 3 star from FL or GA whos better at the actual game of football.
