Lamar County twins Lawrence and Lance Austin committed to Georgia Tech on Monday.

Lance plays quarterback for the Trojans, while brother Lawrence starts at fullback. Both start in the secondary as well, which is where they will likely play in college.

Lawrence rushed for 1,206 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2012. He also caught two touchdown passes.

Lance rushed for 800 yards and 11 touchdowns and passed for 666 yards and seven touchdowns.

The duo helped lead Lamar County to a 12-1-1 season and an appearance in the state semifinals, where they lost 21-14 to Calhoun.
