Florida commits recruiting a DB

South Florida is absolutely loaded with top talent in high school football this year. Included in the talented crop is top cornerback prospect, Chris Lammons.

Plantation (Fla.) cornerback Chris Lammons is enjoying some time in Oregon this week competing at The Opening.

“It’s a real good event here,” Lammons said. “There is a lot of competition out here, but I’ve come out and locked up the competition. The talent out here is the real deal.”

In regards to recruiting, the 5-foot-9, 168-pound Lammons has narrowed down his list of schools to a top 5.

“My top 5 are Florida, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee and Miami,” Lammons said. “With Alabama, it’s because of coach Nick Saban. With Florida, it’s coach T-Rob. Miami is just the hometown school.”

For Lammons, his relationship with Florida started over a year ago and has continued to grow ever since.

“Me and coach T-Rob met last year at Friday Night Lights,” Lammons said. “We built a relationship ever since then and he has watched me compete and play. He always says he likes me. We keep in touch with each other all the time.”

With Florida already having three committed prospects from the South Florida area, you can imagine Lammons is being recruited hard.

“Anthony Moten and Dalvin Cook are recruiting me hard,” Lammons said. “They tell me to come join the Gator Nation and be with them and win games.”

Lammons says he will visit Florida for Friday Night Lights and will participate if his ankle injury is better.
