AJ Lawson commits to South Carolina

4 star wing AJ Lawson has committed to South Carolina.

The 6-7 Lawson, from GTA Prep in Mississauga, Ontanio, Canada, chose South Carolina over Creighton, Oregon, SMU, Tulane and others.

Lawson is ranked as the No. 40 prospect in the 2019 class before he reclassified in late spring.

Lawson averaged 14.8 points and 5.4 rebounds for Canada in the FIBA under-18 Americas championships.

AJ's father, Anthony Lawson, grew up in Summerton and played football at Scott's Branch. While in the Air Force, he was stationed at Shaw and lived in Columbia. He still has plenty of family around the state.
