Bulls Looking at Largo Playmaker Mike Lang

Largo standout Mike Lang has emerged as a big time playmaker, and has already begun to rack up the offers, including one from the home town Bulls. Find out about the exciting WR prospect who's in Sebring for the North/South All-Star Game. Get informed, only on USFNation.com!

After only bringing in one receiver last year, one of the top priorities for the staff is bringing in a solid group of wide receivers for the next class. The staff has several prospects on their board and recently just added another in Largo's WR/DB Mike Lang.

"I got an offer from the Bulls about three weeks ago," said Lang. "I've talked with both Coach Leavitt and Coach Gregory, and they told me they like how I play and want me to come to Tampa."

Lang, 6-0 and 180 pounds, has helped his Largo team go deep into the playoffs where they lost to St. Thomas Aquinas. This season, Lang has 38 catches for 960 yards and eight touchdowns on offense and he's had a good season on the defensive side of the ball as well with 45 tackles, 3 interceptions and 2 fumble recoveries.

"We wanted to be more balanced than last year, especially in the passing game," said Lang. "I just try and do my very best to come up with a play on both offense and defense."

Lang is versatile enough to play on either side of the ball, and was voted All-Pinellas County first team for offense, but at what position are the Bulls recruiting him to play?

"They told me they like me on both sides of the ball, but they are recruiting me as a wide receiver, and like my potential."

Lang has been to several Bulls practices over the past year and was glad when the Bulls offered.

"I like the Bulls," said Lang. "They're close to home and I've seen them practice and the team seems real close." The two-way standout has speed, leaping ability, soft hands, and emerged as a playmaker for Largo, and that has resulted with offers from the likes of Missouri, Cincinnati, USF, Colorado Sate, Ole Miss, and FAU, to name a few, but isn't ready to name any favorites just yet.

"No, no favorites yet," said Lang. "I want to go on a few visits before I can say who my leaders are."

Lang has not taken any official visits yet, but has a visit set with Cincinnati on January 9th, and plans on going to Missouri and Louisville also, but is still in the process of setting up the rest of his visit schedule.

Today he and teammate Mike Marry are in Sebring for the North/South All-Star Game, and will refocus on recruiting after the game.
