College football will be without one of its brightest starts this weekend.
Trevor Lawrence tested positive for COVID-19:

In addition to being Clemson’s star quarterback, Lawrence is the presumptive No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. His college career is already as decorated as they come. Two ACC championships, all-conference accolades, and a national title are at the top of his résume. Lawerence figured to cap his college career with a Heisman Trophy, which he was the odds-on favorite to win entering this season. And while there have been whispers he could return for another year of college ball (especially if the Jets are in a position to draft him), Lawrence is expected to forgo his senior season to enter the NFL Draft.
How testing positive for COVID-19 changes Lawrence’s future for him is unknown, but count him out of Saturday’s action against Boston College. In the end, here’s a quick and healthy recovery. College football won’t be the same without watching Lawrence drop dimes on Saturday.
