They raised almost $3,000 in a very short amount of time, but Mowry revealed on her Instagram account that the NCAA caught wind of the fundraiser and put a stop to it.

The news comes about two hours after The State published a story that said NCAA rules prohibited Lawrence and Mowry from having a GoFundMe page for coronavirus victims because athletes can not use their name, image and likeness for crowd funding. The NCAA said it will continue working with its member schools to ensure athletes and those affected by the virus are supported.

The NCAA stinks - we all know that by now.

Lawrence and his girlfriend, Anderson University soccer player Marissa Mowry, started their "COVID-19 Family relief and support" fundraiser on Monday afternoon and raised almost $2,700. The Athletic likewise reported that the university's compliance office acted to keep Lawrence from being in violation of NCAA rules.

It wasn't immediately known how quickly Lawrence and Mowry would revive their GoFundMe efforts, but they are expected to do so. Before the NCAA contacted Clemson, Mowry had posted a video on Instagram Tuesday explaining the situation, thanking those who donated and apologizing for any confusion. They're allowing us to continue to raise money for what we were doing originally.

Lawrence added: "I just wanted to thank the NCAA, really". Clemson Athletics also issued a statement of their own on Twitter. Everyone's made them out to be the bad guy, but it was more so the rules that were already in place. The campaign, which lists Mowry as the organizer and Lawrence as a beneficiary, had raised $2,670. "They've done a really good job of responding and actually allowing us to do it".

"If you want to donate to specific organizations that will help fight the impact COVID-19 has had, use the link in my bio to donate to: No Kid Hungry or donate to Meals on Wheels.Thank y'all in advance for the impact you all will make!" she wrote. Again, our intentions were to try and help everyone, and that's changed a little bit.
