It wasn’t the curtain call Clemson fans wanted but in perhaps the worst kept secret in Clemson football history, the Trevor Lawrence era has officially come to a close in Clemson. The three-year graduate and projected first overall pick leaves behind an incredible legacy and is now ready to take on a new challenge in the NFL.

Best of luck, 16. It’s been a pleasure to admire from a distance and I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to watch you grow and develop over the last three seasons. Lawrence carried himself with class and toppled nearly every mountain in his way while in Tigertown and now the time has come to move on. The pressure on every corner was enough to make the strongest grow quiet but instead Trevor’s voice grew louder during these past 12 months. He has a bright future ahead of him both on and off the field. Well done, Trevor.
