Lane enjoys Florida official visit

Adam Lane was Florida's first commitment of the 2013 class and he hasn't looked back. The Winter Haven (Winter Haven, FL) running back took his official visit to Florida last weekend and had a great time with his future teammates and coaches. He also got to talk a little bit with Florida running back target and mystery man Alex Collins. Get the latest on Lane and his visit right here.

Adam Lane said he felt right at home on his official visit to Florida.

"It was great, I hung out with Matt (Jones), (Brian) Poole, and (Quinton) Dunbar the majority of the time there. They fed us a lot though so I think I gained like three pounds, I kid you not," he said.

"(The coaches were telling me) ‘We love you here,' ‘It seems like every time we see you, you're getting bigger,' just things that make you feel at home. It was really cool."

The 5-foot-7, 215-pound running back said he got to talk to Gators' target Alex Collins a bit, but it was tough to get a read on the South Plantation standout.

"I didn't see him as much as I thought I would because his host was Hunter Joyer." Lane said.

"You couldn't really tell anything. Who knows?"

Lane visited Florida for several games this season and was extremely impressed with how the Gators performed.

"Oh, we had almost the hardest schedule in the SEC and we still did really well. We only lost to Georgia, and that wasn't too bad, so I feel like we did really well," he said.

In his senior season, Lane rushed for more than 1700 yards and had 15 touchdowns. He said it was a great way to end his high school career, especially after missing his entire junior season with an injury.

"Honestly, I went into the season not thinking about stats, I just went in an played my game. I just wanted to have fun in my senior year and that's what I did," he said.

"I felt like I improved a lot, mentally, picking up blocks, knowing where to run, things like that."

Lane no longer plans to enroll early at Florida but will finish out his senior year at Winter Haven High School.
