Shortly after reports circled sharing that the fall sports season may be in jeopardy, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence took to Twitter to do a little bit of his own sharing.

The national champion took a hard stance that college football players would not be safe if the season were to be canceled and would even put some at financial risk. He also went down the path of discussing the release football provides for student-athletes and the sports many fans.

Lawrence also proclaimed that without a college football season no one will be following the correct guidelines and players will be at even more of a risk.

Sports Illustrated reported that high-level meetings amongst the Power Five conferences would be taking place later this week regarding the postponement of the fall season. The Mid-American Conference began the movement on Saturday when it announced its own cancellation, and more reports shared that the Big Ten is pushing for a joint postponement amongst the rest of the conferences.

Although there is no set date for these meetings, one industry source told Sports Illustrated that the news would be coming sooner rather than later.

“In the next 72 hours college football is going to come to a complete stop,” said the source.
