The No. 18 ranked player in the class of 2006 Tywon Lawson displayed the skills at the Nike All-American Camp that have ACC and Big East schools on his trail. The 5-foot-11, 182-pound point guard from Bishop McNamara High School in Forestville, Md., listed two favorites at the camp.
“I want to play in the ACC or the Big East,” said Lawson. “I am being recruited by Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Florida State, Maryland, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Connecticut, and Georgetown. Georgia Tech, North Carolina, and Maryland have offered.”
When asked who was the favorite out of the schools he mention, Lawson quickly came up with two.
“It’s Georgia Tech and North Carolina,” he said. “I like both of their styles of play. They get up and down the court. I don’t really like to run sets.”
The physically strong point guard can both penetrate and pass and make the catch and shoot three-point shot. His ability to shoot the three sets his game apart from a lot of the other small, strong point guards whose game is predicated on forcing their way to the rim.
Lawson averaged 18 points and 6 assists per game last high school season.
