CB Commit Lott Set for Rutgers Visit

First Coast (Jacksonville, Fla.) cornerback Kam Lott is two weeks into his Rutgers commitment and ready for his first visit to campus. Set to visit Piscataway, N.J. this weekend, Lott spoke with ScarletReport.com about his expectations and excitement for the trip.

Cornerback Kam Lott has had his eye on June 6 since making his verbal commitment to Rutgers. For the First Coast (Jacksonville, Fla.) High standout cornerback, the weekend marks his first trip to Rutgers.

"Me and my whole family are excited," Lott said. "We've been talking about marking this day on our calendars for the longest time. It's just exciting to see where I'm going to be sending the next three or four years at. Everybody's excited."

Lott is set to visit Rutgers for the weekend with his family and is excited to spend one on one time with the coaching staff.

"I'm bringing my mom, dad and brother – the whole family," Lott said. "It's so they can get acclimated with where I'm going to college."

Lott committed to Rutgers two weeks ago over a handful of other BCS offers. Solid on his decision, he looks at his first trip to campus as a chance to learn more about the school and the coaching staff.

"I want to experience the atmosphere," Lott said. "And just meeting the coaching staff. I know some of them. I haven't met them all personally but I've talked to them. Meeting the coaching staff and getting a feel for them is big."

Detroit Country Day (Beverly Hills, Mich.) quarterback commit Tyler Wiegers, Nottingham (Trenton, N.J.) defensive back commit Saquan Hampton and Palmetto (Fla.) running back Josh Hicks have all been in touch with Lott since his commitment.

Lott expects to see Hampton and a few other local committed prospects on campus this weekend during his visit.

"It's been a lot of fun, exciting," Lott said. "All of these coaches and the guys messaged me on Facebook or whatever and just welcomed me to the family. They even reached out to my mom and that's a cool thing. It's been exciting but I'm glad [recruiting] is over."

Lott has friends being recruited by Rutgers and, although he does not want to influence the process, he will spread the word about the future Big Ten program.

"I'm trying not to pressure them too much," Lott said. "I just talk about how it's the place to be. You already have a friend there so why not. Rutgers is a good place, good academics and a great head coach. He's changing the face of the program at Rutgers."
