Himebauch connects with Lawshe

Newly hired Wake Forest offensive line coach Jonathan Himebauch did not need much time to mesh with Charlotte (NC) Mallard Creek offensive guard Tevin Lawshe Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Demon Deacons Junior Day.

"Wake was a great trip," Lawshe said. "He seems like a real cool guy. I got real close to him. He actually hung out with me most of the time during the recruiting trip. I sat next to him at the basketball game. We got to conversating, just get a good relationship with one another."

Lawshe gave Himebauch his film, who wants the 6-foot-4, 273-pounder to camp at Wake Forest this summer. He added that Himebauch wants to see him work out in person before making a scholarship offer.

After the meet and greet with Wake's coaches the Mallard Creek offensive guard and the other recruits present at the event viewed an academic power point presentation, then a team highlight video before going to the basketball game against Boston College.

"They taught us more about the university and what it was all about and how it's a smaller university and how you wouldn't get lost like you would at any other university, how it's small and how you know everybody and how they can spend time with you and get you that degree, which we all came there for," Lawshe said.

He added the atmosphere at Wake was a good, and that he can picture himself there.

"Wake Forest actually ranks very high for me, because they are a very small university, which I can work with well. They help you highly academically, which I can really work with well also," Lawshe said.

Along with Lawshe Mallard Creek also brought Alex Covington, Anthony Covington, Jorian Jordan and Brian Walker. The Mavericks rival, Vance turned out well too, which brought about some good-natured trash talking.

"All of us are just looking forward to the season to see who comes out the winner of that game between rivalry," Lawshe said.

He played an integral in Mallard Creek's run to the fourth round of the state playoffs and 13-1 finish.

Lawshe will travel to Duke to March 17 to watch one of the Blue Devils spring practices, and will visit East Carolina unofficially April 14. ECU is the only school that has offered Lawshe. Auburn, Maryland, NC State, North Carolina and Tennessee are also showing interest.

He plans to participate in the Shrine Bowl Combine in Charlotte next month.
