CLEMSON, SC - The news we all dreaded hearing since the season began came down like a bombshell on Thursday evening, as Clemson announced that Heisman front-runner Trevor Lawrence has tested positive for COVID-19. He has mild symptoms and is in isolation according to Dabo and will obviously be unavailable for Saturday's game against BC. It is also highly likely that Trevor will miss the big top-5 showdown at Notre Dame (in 9 days) as well. Fortunately, the Tigers have a bye after that before playing at FSU. Assuming freshman QB DJ Uiagalelei does not also test positive, he will get the start on Saturday against Boston College.
Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney provided the following update this evening on quarterback Trevor Lawrence:
“Trevor has authorized us this evening to announce that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now in isolation. He is doing well with mild symptoms but will not be available for this week’s game against Boston College. While we certainly will miss Trevor, this is an opportunity for other guys to step up and we’re excited about competing against a very good BC team on Saturday. Go Tigers.”
