UTSA has landed the commitment of Juco CB Jaylon Lane.
Lane is a former Scout.com 3-star recruit. As part of the 2015 recruiting class out of Nacogdoches High School, Lane was ranked as the #10 CB in Texas and #78 CB in the nation.
Lane held over 30 offers and was originally committed to Oklahoma State. But an off-the-field incident led to his arrest and he did not sign anywhere. Here are details on that from Scout’s OSU site: LINK
On the field, there’s no questioning Lane’s talent. At 6’1” and 175lbs, he fits the mold as a division one corner. Here’s National Analysts Greg Powers’ take: “Lane is a calm and effective playmaker on the field. He is a defensive back prospect who possesses premium size and length. He could grow in to a safety with time, but is smooth enough and quick enough to be projected as a CB. He has good hands, instincts and open field tackling ability. He stays low and is quick with his backpedal and has a good break on the ball. Shows some above average speed on interception returns and kick returns.”
In a message to InsideRunnerSports, Lane confirmed his commitment to UTSA. He also stated that he was no longer at Jones County Juco and is planning on attending a college in Kansas but preferred not to say where as to not cause any confusion.
Lane will join UTSA as part of the 2017 recruiting class. He is anticipating being an early transfer in order to be on campus in January of 2017.
