Lane Talk Visits Plans And Offers

Itawamba CB Quinton Lane (6-3, 185) recently received a new offer and, while he remains committed to South Alabama, he has a visit planned to a different school this weekend and may schedule another one to see another suitor next weekend...

"I'm still committed to South Alabama," Lane told "I just want to make sure I see other schools and make sure I made the right decision.

"I'm visiting North Texas this weekend and I'm working on possibly setting up a visit to see Hawaii or Louisiana-Lafayette next weekend."

In addition to his offer from South Alabama, Lane has offers from Hawaii, Louisiana-Lafayette, North Texas, Troy, Southern Mississippi and Jackson State.

This season, Lane finished with a team-leading eight passes defensed while contribuiting 25 tackles as well.

"One of the big things I worked on was being better in man-to-man coverage," Lane said. "We have some good receivers (at Itawamaba) and also in our opponents down here (in the MACJC) and it's easy to play zone, but I needed to get better at man-to-man.

"I felt like I needed to work a lot on my backpedal and my footwork. I did a lot of drills to help with those. I also just worked really hard at getting out of my backpedal and breaking on passes.

"I felt like I had a great year and I'm just ready to find my next school and continue doing what I do best."

Lane is a good student and was a full-qualifier out of high school, so he can sign this month and he will have three years to play starting in the fall of 2015.
