In a departure from his comments a month ago, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence on Tuesday hinted that he could return for his senior season rather than turn pro.

Lawrence is universally considered to be the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, if he forgoes his senior season.

"My mindset has been that I'm going to move on,'' Lawrence said Tuesday. "But who knows? There's a lot of things that could happen.''

Lawrence, scheduled to graduate in December, said in September that "I'm planning on this being my last season." He turned 21 earlier this month.

Lawrence has a 31-1 record as Clemson's starter. The No. 1 Tigers are 6-0 this season. Lawrence has thrown for 1,833 yards with 17 touchdowns against two interceptions this season, completing 70.7 percent of his passes.

At 0-7, the New York Jets are on track to own the No. 1 pick next year.

"No matter where I go -- whether that's across the country or whether it's close to home, whether I stay another year -- we'll work it out," Lawrence said.
