CB Lammons picks up Florida offer

Will Muschamp is known for his work with defensive backs, and the Gators are certainly looking to add cornerbacks in the Class of 2014.

On Wednesday, the Gators offered 2014 Plantation (Fla.) High cornerback Chris Lammons.

“It’s great to be offered by Florida,” Lammons said. “Coach (Will) Muschamp is the one who offered me. He said he liked how good of an athlete I was and that he wants to get me on the team and that he wants me to visit soon. I loved it.”

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Lammons is being recruiting by Florida as a cornerback, but he is a prospect who could play several different positions.

But Lammons is very impressed by what the Gators have to offer on defense and he has a connection to the Gators on defense.

“Marcus Roberson is my god brother,” Lammons said. “So he tells me several things about the defense. He tells me that they only recruit the top defensive backs in the country and that they play physical football at cornerback. I really that coach Muschamp is a defensive backs coach too.”

Lammons visited Florida last July for Friday Night Lights, and he plans multiple trips to Gainesville soon.

The last few days have been busy for Lammons has he has picked up several offers from some of the top programs in the state and country.

“This week Florida, Florida State, Ohio State and Miami have all offered,” Lammons said. “It’s been a busy with all of the coaches talking to me and offering me.”

Lammons said that nobody stands out to him at this time, and he will wait until after he takes visits before narrowing things down.
