Highly-recruited defensive end Carl Lawson has confirmed that he’ll ink with the Auburn Tigers. He also came across as a very sharp, very well-grounded young man when asked about his first-year expectations:
“I just want to work hard and I just want to be a part of the team. I would love to have a whole bunch of sacks and stuff, but I have yet to step on a college field and I have yet to prove my ability.”
Lawson also said that he signed with Auburn, not the coaching staff. When Gene Chizik and crew left, it made his decision tougher, but again AU was his choice.
On a day filled with prima donnas, it’s good to see an intelligent kid who says “team” comes first.
