ESPN Scouting Report
“Stout defender with a thick build. Possesses excellent explosion and runs very well for his size. Powerful at the point of attack and is difficult to move out of the hole. Flashes an effective bull rush. High motor player. Lawless is a big man who is explosive in the trenches. With a little polish, we believe he has the potential to be a very disruptive presence at the next level.”
