Dwayne Lawson, a former 4-star quarterback recruit, will be transferring from Virginia Tech.
Lawson will transfer to Hutchinson Community College in Kansas.
“Our coaches and staff at Virginia Tech invested significant effort in providing Dwayne the support and resources to be successful as a both a student and an athlete, as did Coach Beamer and his staff,” said Head Coach Justin Fuente in a statement. “After conversation with Dwayne, he felt leaving our football program would be in his best interest. We wish Dwayne the best at Hutchinson Community College.”
Lawson, a sophomore, seemed to fall behind in this year’s quarterback competition. Fuente has said repeatedly that Brenden Motley and Jerod Evans are the top two options right now for Virginia Tech at quarterback.
Lawson played in five games last season as a freshman, completing three of nine passes for 51 yards. He also ran 14 times for 55 yards and one touchdown.
