NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches football standout has decided where he will take his athletic talents, 37 offers later.
Junior, Jaylon Lane has verbally committed to play at Oklahoma State.
The Nacogdoches cornerback, coming in at 6-2, 185 pounds, said Oklahoma State was one of the first schools that recruited him before he blew up.
"OSU was on me a whole lot and they recruited me before I had any offers in the fall. I kept in contact with those guys and they built up a good relationship with me before I received all the offers," said Lane. "They still kept in contact with me and said I was a good guy that they really wanted. There was a family base with those guys. That was the very first school that I visited and it just felt like home. I felt like this place was where I was going to be so I ended up making it happen."
With an additional 36 offers to looks from, OSU was clearly not his only choice, but managed to narrow it down to a few schools before making his final decision.
"It came down to Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Houston, Arizona State and TCU. I talked to my family, then narrowed it down to Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. Then picked Oklahoma State," said Lane.
Here are the other offers Lane received:
Arizona State, Arkansas, Arkansas State, Boise State, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia State, Houston, Kentucky, Louisiana Tech, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Northern Illinois, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Penn State, Purdue, South Alabama, Syracuse, TCU, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Texas State, Texas Tech, UCLA, Utah State, Wake Forest, Washington State.
