Lawry commits to ODU

After picking up one commitment over the weekend, Old Dominion picked up another one tonight. Running back Ray Lawry out of Woolwich (N.J.) Kingsway Regional has decided to play his college football for the Monarchs.
"I've committed to Old Dominion," said the 5-foot-1, 183-pound Lawry. "I visited last weekend with Marques Little. We tour around the school, met with all the coaches and I felt like it was the place for me. I loved it."
Little, an athlete from Williamstown (N.J.), chose Old Dominion this past Saturday.

There were more than a few reasons Lawry chose Old Dominion.
"I liked the social life the players had outside of football," he said. "It's a great academic school. I can get a Master's degree there. There's the beach, the city and there's a lot of stuff to do."
Another reason Lawry chose Old Dominion was because of his comfort level with the coaches and players.
"I know a couple players down there and I talk to some of the coaches pretty frequently," Lawry explained. "I like them a lot."
Lawry also had offers from Maryland, Temple and Western Michigan.
Lawry is Old Dominion's fourth commitment.
