Compiled by a subset of the Davey O’Brien National Selection Committee, this year’s list was selected based on career player performance and expectations heading into the 2020 college football season. All nominees are required to have previously started at least one game at an NCAA Division I institution. In keeping with the changing landscape of college athletics, new transfers were eligible to be included for the first time in the award’s history.Clemson Athletics
Last season Lawrence was a Manning Award finalist as well as a Davey O’Brien Award semifinalist. The first team All-ACC selection completed 268-of-407 passes for 3,665 yards with a career high 36 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
Heading into his junior season, Lawrence is considered the odds on favorite to win the Heisman, as well as be the number one overall pick in next year’s NFL Draft.
