Florida State Seminoles coach Willie Taggart confirmed Thursday that redshirt freshman defensive end Tre Lawson is no longer with the program. Lawson did not make the trip with the team to Bradenton for its camp at IMG Academy. He had a scrap in practice last week with offensive tackle Jauan Williams. Taggart made Williams and Lawson walk off the field holding hands.
Lawson never contributed at FSU. He was not expected to contribute this season, according to sources. He had an interesting recruitment.
FSU was the first FBS program to offer Lawson, but his first commitment was to Tennessee while on an unofficial visit in Knoxville last June. However, after taking no visits of any sort over the 2016 season, Lawson abruptly decommitted from UT on December 16th. The next month, Lawson took an official visit to FSU and committed while visiting on January 15th.
In addition to Tennessee and Florida State, Lawson claimed offers from USC, Oregon, Louisville, Ole Miss, South Carolina, USF, Kentucky, and Illinois.
