UPDATE – 7 a.m.
High school football returns to Kanawha County this week, and with it a new standout in recruiting circles with a familiar last name gets his first chance to show what he can do in 2020.
South Charleston sophomore defensive end/running back Mari Lawton, the younger brother of SC senior star Zeiqui Lawton, has received a handful of Division I scholarship offers in recent weeks — Coastal Carolina, Cincinnati, Arkansas State and Toledo so far. Older brother Zeiqui is considered one of the top Class of 2021 players in West Virginia, and younger brother Mari could very well be in that same conversation for the Class of 2023.
Blessed to receive my 4th offer from Arkansas State University 🙏🏾 @Coach_Joiner @BrianDohn247 @Rivalsfbcamps @HamiltonESPN @DemetricDWarren pic.twitter.com/ZSJmFkNcRV
