The Clemson Tigers will face Notre Dame on Saturday with arguably their best defensive lineman after DT Dexter Lawrence and two others were not cleared to play after testing positive for trace amounts of the PED Ostrarine. Lawrence and reserve TE Braden Galloway and OL Zach Giella were all officially suspended by the NCAA on Thursday. Lawrence vehemently denies knowingly putting any illegal substances in his body.
Ostarine falls into the catagory of SARMs which stands for Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators which basically act the same as anabolic steroids but have less side effects. They are especially effective helping maintain lean muscle mass and aid in quicker recovery from workouts.
Lawrence was a first-team All-ACC defensive lineman who registered 44 tackles this year including seven for losses.He also had three pass break ups, 1.5 sacks, a fumble recovery, and a blocked kick. Pro Football focus has him down for 33 quarterback pressures during his three year Clemson career and Lawrence is considered an early first round pick on most mock draft big boards.
