Lammons is a Gator

The Gators are on roll for the Class of 2014 as they just picked up their second commitment in three days with the addition of Plantation (Fla.) High cornerback Chris Lammons.

The 5-foot-9, 168-pound Lammons last visited Florida with his good friend, cornerback Quincy Wilson, for the Gators’ Friday Night Lights event.

Lammons is the third cornerback to commit to the Gators in the Class of 2014, joining J.C. Jackson and Duke Dawson.

With the commitment, Lammons becomes the 13th member of the Class of 2014 and the third from the South Florida area, joining Khairi Clark and Dalvin Cook.

Lammons chose Florida over South Carolina, Tennessee and Miami.

The South Florida cornerback had long discussions with Florida cornerback Marcus Roberson and Gators’ defensive back coach Travaris Robinson this past weekend. Both Roberson and Robinson talked to Lammons about how he would fit into the Florida defense. The decision was not an easy one for Lammons, as he was still unsure of where he would pledge his commitment over the past couple days.

“Great coaching, great facilities and it’s somewhere I feel comfortable,” Lammons said about his decision to commit to Florida.

The one question mark that comes with Lammons is if he is quick enough to play cornerback in the SEC.
Lammons will be yet another multi-talented player for the Gators. “I want to play corner, kick returner, and punt returner,” Lammons said. “They suggested the same thing, so it’s like everything that I want to do.”

For now, the Gators add another talented player to an already strong group of defensive backs.
