Cheyenne, WY (Future150) -- If there's one thing that remains consistent with the fabric of youth and high school basketball, it's where the majority of talent emerges from. Whether it's Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles or Philadelphia, more often than not, elite talent hails from the most populous metropolitan areas of the United States. Well, you could say then that 2021 post Lawson Lovering is breaking the mold.

Hailing from Wyoming, the 6'8", 180-pound big man emerged at our Future150 Elite24 All-American Camp this past August, and the future looks very bright for the Cheyenne Central (WY) freshman. 

A big man with soft hands, nice footwork & solid finishing ability around the rim with both hands, he more than caught our eye as a future division one prospect. 

"This year, I want to win state and average 10 points per game," Lawson told us in reference to his goals for his initial high school season.

While he's not a dominant force just yet, there are clear indicators that his best basketball days are well down the line. His mother played basketball at Fresno State, his father played at Colorado Christian & his grandfather played football at the University of Wyoming. Need more proof? Just take a look at his size 17 sneakers, or the fact that he doesn't turn 15 until next May. 

"Right now, I'd say my footwork is a strength, and my upper body strength is something I'm working on. My dream is to play division one basketball, and maybe one day play in the NBA."

After playing last season with the Wyoming Beasts on the travel circuit, this year he plans on taking his game to the next level while playing with the Exum Elite Utah Prospects, a program with alumni such as Frank Jackson of the New Orleans Pelicans.
