Lane Hoping TCU Offers

Nacogdoches, TX cornerback Jaylon Lane recently visited TCU for a Frogs' junior day.

Jaylon Lane isn’t your typical cornerback prospect; at 6-foot-2, 170-pounds Lane has the size to match up with bigger receivers and with 4.5 speed, he also has the speed to match.

Lane was a star the last two seasons at San Angelo Central, intercepting a total of 8 passes in 2012 and 2013. However, he made an off-season move to Nacogdoches and went from being one of the top corners in west Texas to now a top player to watch in east Texas.

The rising corner hasn’t picked up his first offer yet, but several schools have shown heavy interest including TCU. The Horned Frogs have recruited Lane since last season and the standout even had an impressive summer camp performance last year at TCU.

He recently made the drive to the Ft. Worth campus to attend TCU’s first junior day that hosted over 20 top prospects. The visit impressed Lane enough for him to declare that once the Frogs offer, the process will be over.

“It felt like home,” he said. “That’s where I want to go; I'm just waiting on those guys for the offer.”

Echoing what other recruits have said about their TCU junior day experience, Lane said the bonds formed with current players and the family atmosphere is what stood out the most.

“(I liked) when the four players talked about the school and how the school works and how they stay on their grades,” Lane said. “Just felt like home the whole time.”

Lane says there are multiple reasons TCU sits alone at the top of his list.

“Knowing their defense already and the great relationship I have with the coaches,” Lane said of why TCU stands out. “And hearing from the players, that's when it really hit me. I'll get more one on one in class because it’s a private school. My family also loves it.”

Up next for Lane is a possible junior day visit to UTSA. He also had an invite to another Big 12 program but decided to visit TCU instead.

“I’ve got invited to UTSA this weekend,” he said. “I was supposed to attend Oklahoma State’s but I picked TCU over that one.”
