Lane Relates Well with Coach White

Most coaches will tell you that the most important person in a college football player's life in the collegiate level is their strength and conditioning coach. No argument here, but the next guy in line that the player should fuse with is his position coach. Adam Lane was the first commitment in the Florida 2013 class, and a big part of his decision was likely running back coach Brian White.

Brian White has been known as a great recruiter to those that follow the madness that is college football recruiting, and of course the Florida Gators. His claim to fame coaching running backs is Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne from the bruising back's days at Wisconsin. But White brings more to the table with his personality and that is what allows him to be an exceptional recruiter.

Winter Haven running back Adam Lane has taken to White's style on and off the field.

"My relationship with Coach White is wonderful because we not only talk about football but we talk about everyday things and most of our conversations we're making jokes and laughing the whole time." Lane said earlier this week.

All the laughing and playing is great, but lane intends on a very serious career at Florida. He has been rehabbing a broken leg and getting better. He intends to camp more this summer and prepare himself better for his arrival on campus so that when he gets to Gainesville, he can be all business.

"I'll be going to a few more camps and I will be running track with my AAU team," he said. "I'm looking forward to working as hard as I can (at Florida) and perfecting my craft as a running back and going on to the next level."

It is also very important for Lane to win and the 5-9, 205 pound bruiser with speed knows he will need help when he arrives on campus. He says that the nation's number one offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil of Lake City Columbia is the guy he would like most in the class that isn't already committed. He also knows that he would love some quality help in the backfield and is all over St. Petersburg Catholic running back Ryan Green to come join him and Kelvin Taylor in the backfield at Florida.

"I just keep letting him know that every school in the SEC needs good backs," he said. "I let him know we would love to have him." ,p>
