Abdur-Rahim Makes First Offer…FROM GEORGIA!
Amir Abdur-Rahim has offered SG Tyrin Lawrence of Morgan County HS/Atlanta Celtics (2019) in Madison, GA (this whole offering GA players is still new to me).
Tai Young of Hoopseen.com Guards on the Rise (November 2018): “A great blend of athleticism and playmaking was enough to land Tyrin Lawrence on a list of players that could be next up on the board of 2019 prospects. Smooth in his approach to the game, Lawrence could give a program a multi-dimensional threat as a playmaker. This 6’4 guard is skilled as both a shot maker and facilitator without ever feeling like he’s dominating the ball. His natural feel of the game will bode well for any program that needs a prospect that understands those subtle nuances of ball screen situations. His ability to play multiple positions should only increase his stock going forward for those mid-major programs in need of more versatility. Schools from the OVC and Sun Belt have all given their pitch and extended offers.
Donta Eberhardt of PrepHoops.com (January 2018): “Lawrence is a key contributor for the undefeated Bulldogs out of Madisen, Georgia. The junior wing has a stringy frame and long arms that proved beneficial on both ends of the floor. Morgan County as a team pressures you in multiple ways defensively so deflections and steals into quick points on the other end are significant and Lawrence fills that role to a tee. On the offensive end, he has a smooth left handed release and knocked down two in the first half of this contest against a solid Meadowcreek team. He has a very quick first step when he does decide to drive but the versatility of Lawrence allows him to contribute even when his offense isn’t at his best on some nights.”
