According to the Roanoke Times, Virginia Tech Hokies quarterback Dwayne Lawson says that he will indeed transfer from the university.
Dwayne Lawson, a sophomore, decided to make his transfer decision after it was reported that he is more than likely facing a suspension for a failed drug test that he took at an unspecified time but we predict it would have to be recently.
Lawson committed to Virginia Tech on February 4th, 2015 and the team was very much relying on Lawson to become the teams long term option but that has since changed. In his lone season with the Hokies he was used very sparingly. Lawson competed 3-9 passes for 51 yards, Lawson excelled more at scrambling where he ran for 55 yards and one touchdown.
Moving on and moving away from Virginia Tech opens up a brand new chance for Lawson. Just like other players that transfer from universities, he will sit out a season if he transfers to a FBS level school but he can suit up if he transfers to FCS or JUCO. We will provide more coverage on Lawson and his decision. Keep on checking back.
