"I spoke with (defensive backs) coach (Fred) Reed like three weeks ago," Lane said. "I only had two offers back then and he said they were going to evaluate me. Then I called him on Saturday and he said, ‘man you have been picking up a lot of offers.'
"He said they watched my film again and loved it. He offered me a scholarship."
"I was excited when they offered," Lane said. "Syracuse is a great school and that's a big offer. Coach Reed is a really great coach and he's up front. I really like him. He's a great guy.
"I don't know much about them yet. I'm still trying to do my homework on those guys. I saw them play in the Texas Bowl. They played Minnesota. They were a really great team and finished to get the W. I loved how they played."
Lane is still early in the process and has 20 offers. Btu Syracuse is a school he plans to keep involved in his recruitment.
"I'm really interested in Syracuse," Lane said. "Those guys are good. I don't have a list at the moment, but I'm going to give them a look for sure."
Lane said he does not have a visit planned, but is hoping to get up to campus over the summer to see the Orange program in person.
