Lane Is One To Watch In Ohio

Cincinnati St. Xavier is one of Ohio's top talent producing high schools, and sophomore defensive tackle Simeon Lane is a player to watch in the class of 2015. Following an impressive season, Lane showed well in the recent U.S. Army Junior Combine.

Last season, Cincinnati St. Xavier sophomore defensive tackle Simeon Lane stood out on the field as a player to watch in Ohio for the class of 2015.

Lane,6-foot-1, 265-pounds, followed up his regular season by performing well this month in San Antonio at the U.S. Army Junior Combine. Even though most of the participants were a year older, Lane more than held his own.

"It was a great experience going against the top players in the nation, and seeing that type of talent," Lane noted. "It was good being able to what I need to do to get better for next season. I thought I did really well, and the coaches there were very helpful."

"Going against older guys was no big deal, and starting on varsity at St. Xavier proved that to me this past season," he added. "I never even thought about it when I was in San Antonio, and I'm used to playing against great players. I did well in one-on-ones, and I think a lot of it was from the coaching I receive and the competition I've gone against."

Although it is early in the recruiting stage for 2015 prospects, Lane is already drawing attention from college programs.

"I'm hearing from schools like Nebraska, Wisconsin, Boston College, and a few others," he explained. "My dad and I are starting to look at places to visit on our own and for camps next summer. I'm looking to visit Boston College and Florida State for basketball games if possible, and I should be more at more camps next summer."

"I was invited to a lot of games last year, and I went to Purdue and Ohio State," he continued. "I haven't had contact with the new Purdue staff yet. I was at the Miami game at Ohio State, and they have followed up with us the past year. I will be at Ohio State's camp next summer, and I'm also looking to camp at places like Boston College, Duke, Clemson and Northwestern. I'm anxious to get out to see different schools and show off my talents."
