2013 forward Jermaine Lawerence is one of the best players in his class, and was one of the most intriguing prospects at the 10th annual Pangos All-American Camp last week. The power forward displayed great athleticism and mobility along with a good jumper.
When asked to describe himself on the court, Lawerence said, “My game is all around. I can dribble, pass and get my teammates involved.”
As he heads into his final year of high school, he will likely start receiving even more interest from college coaches than he already has.
The New York native has a long list of suitors but the three schools coming after him the hardest are “Rutgers, Syracuse, and Florida.”
While Lawerence has already taken visits to Rutgers and Virginia Tech, the Orange may be a serious potential landing spot for him.
“I’ve had the longest relationship with Coach (Adrian) Autry,” said Lawerence.
Whoever lands the highly touted forward will get a player with a good work ethic. On what he likes to do outside of basketball, Lawerence simply answered, “Work out.”
He is taking his time with recruiting and there is no set time table for when he is going to commit. For now, he will continue to play with his AAU team, the New Rens.
