National Signing Day is Wednesday, when all the signed LOIs come through the fax machine, but it could be another week before Mark Stoops’ first class at Kentucky is complete. Tevin Lawson, an LSU commit, plans to hold off before signing the dotted line because he is visiting Kentucky this weekend to see what #BBN has to offer.
That’s right, an LSU commit is waiting to sign with LSU because he wants to see UK. This is real life, folks.
Lawson, a defensive tackle, is ESPN Recruiting’s No. 152 player overall, 30 spots ahead of Jason Hatcher. He recently decided to take a look at Kentucky when Les Miles asked him to greyshirt at LSU. Stoops’ track record and the opportunity to play right away without leaving the SEC makes the Cats an attractive option, but getting past the long distance between Lexington and his home in the bayou will take some convincing from the UK staff.
