Three-star offensive guard Tevin Lawshe is still looking for his first BCS scholarship offer. The 6-foot-4, 267-pounder claims five offers and two favorites as he waits to see who else may offer.
"I've got offers from East Carolina, Georgia State, Elon, Coastal Carolina and Charlotte," he said. "That is it at the moment."
Lawshe has taken a couple of recent visits and is hoping to take a few more.
"I did head to a visit to Furman and I'm planning another visit for Appalachian State," he said. "I've also been to Charlotte multiple times too."
Two other schools are still monitoring Lawshe.
"NC State and North Carolina are talking to me, and that is pretty much the only other schools I'm hearing from," he said. "Both said they plan to monitor me this year and want my early senior film, so it depends how I produce this season. Both said I'm definitely an offer type of kid and they want to keep a close eye on me to see how I play."
Despite the interest from a pair of major in-state powers, Lawshe claims a couple of his offers are standing out.
"My favorites right now are Charlotte and East Carolina," he said.
"East Carolina was the first school to offer me. They were the first to take the lead and recruit me and proved I can play at the college level. Charlotte is a great program starting up. They go Division I after a year playing I-AA and that's a good opportunity to start a program."
Though he plans to take some trips this fall, Lawshe is still unsure when and where he'll be headed.
As far as a decision goes, right now the lineman plans to likely wait until after his senior year.
On the field, Lawshe and Mallard Creek open the season on Friday at Memorial.
"I think it's going to be a great year for us," he said. "We have to stay focused throughout the season and do some good things."
Lawshe has noticed improvements in his game.
"I definitely see a difference in terms of my leadership and setting the tone for the offensive line," he said. "I don't have anything to prove, I just want to keep producing and play more of a leadership role this year."
