4-Star LB Deontae Lawson signs with Alabama football

Deontae Lawson signs with Alabama

Deontae Lawson signed his National Letter of Intent with Alabama football Wednesday.

Lawson is a product of Mobile Christian School in Mobile, Alabama. He was the Crimson Tide’s longest-standing verbal commit before he signed. The 4-Star recruit is one of the five 2021 in-state recruits, who plan to sign with Alabama.

Alabama’s coaching staff wants to play Lawson at inside linebacker. The Leopards of Mobile Christian used him on offense and defense throughout his high school career. Lawson’s most productive season was his final one.

The Alabama signee finished his senior year with 58 rushing attempts for 439 rushing yards and eight touchdowns. He also pulled in 12 receptions for 114 yards. As an inside linebacker, he made 101 tackles and had 15 tackles for loss.

At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, Lawson has prototypical size for an inside linebacker. He possesses some natural athleticism and plays with great instincts. The Mobile product can also close on the football really quickly but knows when to be patient.
