Report: Alonzo Lawrence cleared

Bamaonline.com reported Alonzo Lawrence has been cleared academically. Lawrence plans to enroll as early as June for the summer term pending approval of the NCAA clearinghouse.

Lawrence, a four-star cornerback prospect, had his ACT score flagged and had been awaiting verification. In fact, Jones had been told Lawrence’s earliest possible enrollment at UA would be in July for the second summer term. However, with his ACT score now verified, a June enrollment has become a reality. If Lawrence indeed enrolls for summer school, that would also signal a green light from the NCAA Clearinghouse.

Lawrence is a highly desired member of Alabama’s signing class. Rivals rated him the #2 cornerback in the 2008 class. Scout rated Lawrence the #11 cornerback in the class.

He’s an athletic cornerback with great speed (4.43). He is 6 feet tall and 180 pounds.
