Meet Tevin Lawshe

Tevin Lawshe, remember the name.

The 6-foot-4 and 264-pound junior offensive guard at Mallard Creek in Charlotte is turning heads, and will likely attract more attention in January when he travels to San Antonio to participate in the U.S. Army National Combine.

The Mavericks finished 13-1, losing to eventual 4-AA state champion Greensboro Page in the semifinal round of the state playoffs.

"My performance overall this season I feel I did pretty well," Lawshe said. "I took on a leadership role."

Lawshe is looking at Auburn, Duke, NC State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wake Forest. He confirmed that out of those teams the Blue Devils, Demon Deacons and Tar Heels have shown the most interest in him.

The Charlotte product camped in Winston-Salem this summer under the tutelage of Steed Lobotzke.

"He worked with me a lot," Lawshe said. "He's a good coach. We had a lot of guys down there that day, and he taught me some new techniques with pass-protection. I liked him when I went down there this summer."

Lawshe added he has not had much contact with any of Wake's coaches since then, but that the Demon Deacons asked for his highlight reel from this season and will evaluate him after watching it.

He said he has the most personal relationship with Duke's coaches. Matt Lubick is recruiting him for the Blue Devils.

Lawshe has not had any contact with newly hired UNC head coach Larry Fedora, but said the Tar Heels since are recruiting him harder since they made the switch from Withers.

"Coach [Sam] Pittman was [showing the most interest from UNC], but I don't know the whole situation out there," Lawshe said.
The 2013 prospect said South Carolina was pursuing him intensely at the beginning of the season, but interest from the Gamecocks lessened as time went on.

"The running backs coach that was recruiting me, Coach [Jay] Graham he's just moved to Tennessee to be their running backs coach," Lawshe said. "They're [Tennessee and Auburn] on the radar, and they're sending me a lot of mail. They send me e-mails too."

He loves the many different uniform combinations Oregon has, but said because of the distance it has been difficult to establish a personal connection with the Ducks coaches.

"I'm sure as the recruiting process goes along I'll be getting closer with them," Lawshe said.

This off-season he wants to become more flexible, so he can improve his mobility.
