Because Lott transferred from Mississippi to Tennessee during high school, some of his classes didn't qualify him to play D-1 football, so he began looking to play JC football somewhere and Snow was the school that stood out during the search.
"The Mississippi (JUCO) programs wanted me to commit to them right away and I was still waiting to see if I could get qualified, so I sorta missed out and then Snow came along and offered and I just decided to come here and play," Lott recalled recently.
"I really like it here. It couldn't have worked out better for me."
Lott separated his right shoulder shortly before his freshman season in 2013, but that didn't force him to miss any time and he worked into the defensive backfield rotation.
This fall, Lott started every game for the Badgers and finished with 25 tackles two interceptions and eight pass breakups.
"I'm more of a man-to-man and press (coverage) guy," Lott said. "We run press almost exclusively in practice every day, so I got used to that and I really enjoy it."
Lott said he's been talking a lot recently with the likes of McNeese State as well as Bethune-Cookman.
"I talked to Bethune-Cookman yesterday and I just talked to a coach from McNeese State today," Lott said. "I was talking quite a bit with Utah State before Signing Day and they said they'd talk to me after that, so I am hoping to hear from them soon too."
Lott can leave after he finishes up his two-year degree this May and he will have three years to play two starting in the fall.
