When I asked Ermon Lane if there were other schools beside Florida State in contention for his services, we both shared a laugh after he insisted so on Thursday.
“It’s a possibility I might go to Florida State, but other schools recruiting me hard,” said Lane, who tried to keep a straight face while listing Miami, Alabama and Florida after taking photos to commemorate his Miami Herald First-Team All-Dade honors.
Lane, the Homestead wide receiver who decommitted from UF on Jan. 10, said he’s going to wait until National Signing Day on Feb. 5 to announce his commitment – with all signs pointing to FSU – and not during his official visit to Tallahassee on Jan. 31. He met with members of the Seminoles coaching staff at his school and at home on Thursday, and has no plans at this time to meet with any other coaching staff members from any other school.
After playing in the Under Armour All-America Game on Jan. 2, Lane has also celebrated making the honor roll in recent weeks. Since decommitting, however, he has felt the brunt from fans across several fan bases on Twitter and admitted it has affected him “deep down inside.”
