Live alligators give Lammons a scare

Plantation (Fla.) High cornerback Chris Lammons visited the Gators on Friday with a host of other talent.

This was the first trip to Florida for the 5-foot-11, 170-pound Lammons and he called it a successful one.

“The visit was great and I really enjoyed myself,” Lammons said. “I got to meet a lot of the players and met all of the coaches face to face. I also got to hang out with Marcus Roberson some. Marcus and I are related, so it was good to catch up.”

Much like his friend Quincy Wilson, Lammons enjoyed being able to see the live alligators while on his campus tour.

“Man I’m not going to lie, I was a little scared of the live alligators,” Lammons said. “I really liked seeing them though and seeing a real swamp. As far as the campus goes Florida has a big campus but it seems like most of the buildings are right there together.”

After Lammons went on his campus tour, he was taken to the stadium and to also see the facilities that Florida has to offer.

“The weight room is huge there,” Lammons said. “There was a lot of good equipment in there and stuff that I haven’t seen before. There was some things in there that I hadn’t seen before but you can tell that you can get a lot of good work done in there.”

Lammons also was able to sit down with defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson and Will Muschamp during the visit.

“Coach Muschamp was talking to me about school and my grades,” Lammons said. “He was asking how my grades were and how I liked the visit. Coach Muschamp told me that they want me and need me to come to Florida.”

Following the visit, Lammons said that Florida is high on his list along with South Carolina, Ohio State, Alabama, Miami and Florida State.
