Lawson picked the Hokies over fellow in-state program UVA. He is ranked the No. 38 player in the state by 247Sports. His recruitment has been limited because he only played in four games as a junior due to injury. The Hokies likely see him as a defensive player, with defensive end, linebacker and even safety as possibilities depending on how he grows in the future. Like everyone else, he also missed the spring evaluation period due to Covid-19.
