Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence — the projected No. 1 pick for the 2021 NFL Draft — has tested positive for COVID-19. According to head coach Dabo Swinney, Lawrence is in isolation and won’t play this weekend against Boston College.
During the first six games of the 2020 season, Lawrence has completed 70.7 percent of his passes for 1,833 yards (9.6 yards per attempt) and 17 touchdowns — all of which rank No. 1 in the ACC.
Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence tested positive for COVID & is now in isolation. “He will not be available for this week’s game against Boston College,” Dabo Swinney said.

The ACC uses CDC guidelines for when a player tests positive for COVID-19; this stipulates that a player must isolate for 10 days from the time of the positive test. This means Lawrence could also be sidelined for No. 1 Clemson’s matchup two Saturdays now against No. 5 Notre Dame.
