Trevor Lawrence, Clemson, Shawn Watson discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Clearly, he's got a rifle of an on them looked absolutely sensational on the national championship game as well. With this three touchdowns at three hundred and forty seven yards passing. You had the Shawn Watson just a couple of years ago deliver a national championship for you. And I'm not asking you to compare those two per se. But what I am asking is how good can. Can Trevor Lawrence end up being when we talk about. I mean, I've got people right now talking about his height and his ability to see over the defensive line of scrimmage, and what he can do with that all of this. They think he has an opportunity to be one of if not the old, Tom great. What are you say about Trevor Lawrence today? Say he's he certainly has that opportunity that they that he's got every measurable that you would ever want, you know, from a quarterback standpoint as far as his size, his fundamentals his release, his arm strength athleticism is all those things. And then he's got the intangibles the football. I q the ability to process things and see it his demeanor his poise. He's leadership character humility, you know, all of those things. So he's got everything. There's really no. I mean, the only thing that would stop him is is, you know, just the good Lord didn't have it in the car. It's one for whatever reason. But man, he's he's gonna just continue to get better as body. He played it about two fifteen this year. And I you know, and as opposed to the show on his freshman year he played about right at one nine nine two. Eight hundred and left here about two fifteen or so, and I I think I think Trevor leave here, you know, to thirty plus, and he's very athletic. I mean the last drive of the game. The other night is the longest driving Clemson football history. We had the ball ten minutes and two seconds in the game. We got the ball and a half inch line and kept it for ten minutes and two seconds and took a knee in a big reason for that was was Trevor, you know, he made a couple of runs, and you know, there's a lot of people don't really see him in that. Right. But man that guy could move and he can make plays with his legs when he needs to. And you saw that on that last drive. You had a couple of huge first downs that allowed us to to, you know, take take all the time off the clock there in the fourth quarter. So he's he's special and I can't wait to to get back on the field this spring. We've got most everybody back on offense and roll lose Renfro. He out of here. Trial. But it'll be a good starting point to have. He and chase Bryce who. Also got some great experience this year getting out there on that field. I got two Trevor Lawrence eight the only special one this kid Justin Ross is something special. And he is a guy that starred as a prep player in Alabama. And you got him to come from Alabama to Clemson. And that leads me to a bigger question that I wanted to ask you ask you about, you know, being Winston Salem state going to school there right down right up the road from from from from Clemson and South Carolina. I'm familiar with that area. And I never in. My wildest dreams believed that Clemson would be sitting in this position right now where it's not about just a national championship. What I took from Justin Rawson when he was spoken to and what he spoke about this prior to the national championship game. They asked him why he wanted to come to Clinton, and he talked about the family kind of atmosphere the fun Lovin coach and a program that he plays for and he talks about having a good time..
