In our ongoing Georgia Tech recruits series here at YellowJackedUp.com,  an interesting tid-bit has come up. A part of the excellent 2014 Recruiting Class includes two twin defensive backs that are identical in appearance, position and play, Lawrence and Lance Austin.

Lawrence is the (slightly) shorter one at 5’10, and weighing in at roughly one pound less (170) than his twin. Lawrence is listed as the no. 105 defensive back coming out of high school, and has a 3-star rating by most scouts.

A product of Lamar County HS in Barnesville, Ga., Austin helped his Trojans team to 14-1 record (7-0 in their division) during his senior year. The Trojans also finished off the year as the 23rd ranked team in the GA State rankings according to MaxPreps.com.

Lawrence also played a little running back in high school. With that being said, he could be looked at to maybe do some kick and punt return work. His numbers in his senior year were pretty good, coming in with 79 tackles (41 solo), with an average tackles per game at just over 5.

No matter how head coach Paul Johnson and his staff decide to use Lawrence Austin, he is going to be a player to watch for. It’s always great to have a playmaker in your secondary who can also be used in offensive and special teams play as well.
