To steal a line from Lebron James’ announcement, the highly recruited South Florida trio of Chris Lammons, Ermon Lane and Quincy Wilson are all taking their talents…to Gainesville, Florida.
All three made individual commitments to Florida on Monday evening, joining an already talented Class of 2014 for the Florida Gators. All three were recruited to Florida by cornerbacks coach Travaris Robinson who is the main recruiter for South Florida.
