All-State football: Del City's Corey Lawrence grows into two-way threat

OKLAHOMAN ALL-STATE DEFENSIVE BACK — Corey Lawrence is on the All-State team as a defensive back, though his eye-popping numbers came offensively this season with 19 total touchdowns. Perhaps the most impressive statistic is his 22 yards per reception.

“What really got us hyped was when we beat our rival Midwest City,” Lawrence said. “We beat them and that just got our momentum and we started beating a lot of teams that were supposed to beat us.”

Lawrence's junior season was cut short because of a knee injury, but he came back strong with the aid of a 7-on-7 camp during the summer.

“He had the ability to stretch the field and gain some confidence back from his knee from the year before and he probably wasn't really full speed until right before camp,” Warehime said.

Lawrence runs around a 4.3 in the 40-yard dash, garnering interest from Oregon State, Tulsa, Kansas State, New Mexico and Arkansas State as an athlete.

The entire recruiting process has been a little shocking to Lawrence, who has only been on an official visit to New Mexico. He has scheduled visits to Oregon State on Jan. 11 and Arkansas State on Jan. 18.

“When I first started, I didn't think I was going to get recruited like this,” he said. “I mean, it's good but it's crazy.”
