ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – JaJuan Lawson had his choice of big schools seeking his services under center.
The dual threat quarterback chose New Mexico and the weather played a big part.
“I am not a cold weather guy,” said Lawson. “When I came out to Albuquerque and it was 65 degrees in the winter it was a no brainer for me”.
Lawson visited the Lobos practice Thursday, anticipating what it will be like when he returns in June for a couple of summer school classes. Once school starts in the fall, Lawson will be more than ready to show everyone what earned him three stars in recruit rankings.
During his high school career, the highly touted QB from Petaluma, California put up impressive numbers.
Lawson left Casa Grande High School with 6,277 passing yards, 2,189 rushing yards and 62 touchdowns. He led his team to a 13 and 1 record and trip to the state semi finals in his senior season behind 2,203 yards passing and 23 touchdowns.
