Dabo Swinney Would Be 'Surprised' If Trevor Lawrence Returned to Clemson in 2021

Clemson head football coach sounded like someone who is resigned to the fact top quarterback prospect Trevor Lawrence will be in the NFL next year but left the door open to the star signal-caller if he wants to return.

"I mean, we'll certainly let him stay if that's what he wants to do," Swinney said on SiriusXM (h/t Rich Cimini of ESPN). "But I'd be surprised if he's back with the Tigers next year, but who knows? You never know. I didn't think Christian Wilkins was coming back, but he did."

There isn't much left for Lawrence to prove at the collegiate level.
