On Monday, when 2014 Plantation athlete Chris Lammons verbally committed to the Florida Gators, he did so in a way that many dream of — on a telecast of ESPNU’s College Football: The Blitz.
During the broadcast Lammons announced: “For the next four years, I’ll be attending the University of Florida.” With the selection of the Gators, he passes over his Tennessee and South Carolina, his other finalists.
“(Florida has a) great coaching staff, great facility and that is just somewhere I feel comfortable,” Lammons added.
Lammons, a consensus four-star recruit, is considered as one of the nations top cornerbacks. Although, Lammons also starts at quarterback for his high school team, the Plantation Colonels.
Plantation head coach Steve Davis had some good things to say about Lammons’ pledge to Florida: “I think it’s a great decision,” he said. “[The Gators] will have a need for corners in the next two years.”
Lammons is thought to be joined in Gainesville by two of his best friends, Homestead wide receiver Ermon Lane and University School defensive back Quincy Wilson as they both commit tonight as well. Florida has long been thought to have been the favorite for Lammons, Lane and Wilson.
