Tech Central senior commits to Cornell

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - A Syracuse Institute of Technology student made his college choice official in a signing ceremony on Monday.

Solomon Lawrence has officially committed to run track at Cornell University.

"I really wanted to push myself academically. I was looking for academic prestige and one of the Ivy League schools and when Cornell, Coach Zebb, was really contacting me…he really made himself available. And I was really responsive to that.  And when I took the official visit, it felt like a bunch of nerdy guys who liked to run and so that felt like me, so the transition was kind of easy for that,” Lawrence said.

Lawrence is the school’s first Division I athlete.
