Lane Talks Texas Tech Offer

Nacogdoches cornerback Jaylon Lane has become one of the most heavily recruited players in the country since decommitting from Mississippi last month. RaiderPower.com caught up with the 6-foot-2 corner to see how his offer from Texas Tech went down and how interested he is in the Red Raiders.

After receiving more than 20 offers, it may have seemed Texas Tech was late to the Jaylon Lane party. According to Lane, they weren't late at all.

"I actually had the offer way before I got it, but they wanted to present it to me in person, which means a lot."

The Nacogdoches cornerback is being heavily recruited by several schools. He holds 29 offers from schools including Florida, LSU, Notre Dame and Texas A&M.

Safeties coach Trey Haverty is currently the main man in Tech's recruitment of Lane.

"Coach Haverty came down and offered me. When he offered me, I talked to him for like an hour and fifteen minutes and he spoke with my dad, so the relationship is pretty good."

Lane visited Tech during the Iowa State game and he enjoyed the visit. His favorite part about Raiderland is the atmosphere of Jones AT&T Stadium.

Lane does not have a top schools list at the moment.

"I'm starting to do my homework and get down to that."

Lane did tell Scout.com national recruiting analyst Greg Powers a few weeks back that Ohio State, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Notre Dame and LSU were standing out.
