Charlotte Christian's Desmond Lawrence commits to UNC football

Desmond Lawrence of Charlotte Christian, one of the top junior defensive back prospects in the country, committed to North Carolina last weekend. Lawrence, a 6-foot, 175-pound junior, is the Tar Heels’ eighth known commitment in the Class of 2013 and the sixth from North Carolina.

“One of the things about him is his versatility,” said Charlotte Christian coach Jason Estep. “He can cover, he could play safety, or in the spread offense that Carolina is moving to he could play on that side of the ball. He is athletic, physical and fast.

“He is the type of kid who might play corner, but if he goes safety he can move up in the box or hang back. He understands the game and that helps a lot. Every college football team in the country is looking for this type of kid.”

That'll be fun! Maybe by his senior year, the program will have climbed its way back up to another Tire Bowl loss!
