Rivals100 presented by Under Armour wide receiver Ermon Lane is committed to Florida following the staff changes in Gainesville. Lane didn't make it "The Swamp" last Saturday for the Gators loss to rival Florida State. In fact Lane has yet to take an official visit and he said now that the season is over he is working to plan trips to Florida and FSU with a possible stop to Alabama.
"Coach T-Rob (Travaris Robinson) is coming to see me today," stated Lane. "I think he is bringing Joker Phillips. I'm looking forward to just talking to them. I mean they recruited me enough for me to commit, so nothing has changed. We will probably just talk football."
Schools like Alabama and FSU have stayed in touch ever since he committed according to Lane, so with the staff shake up at UF he said both schools reached out just like normal.
When asked which school get his first official visit? Lane hesitated before saying, "It will be either Florida State or Florida, but I'm not sure yet."
Lane said if he leaves Florida for an official visit it will be to Alabama. The Tide have called Lane to feel him out, but they have yet to set up in an home visit.
The lack of playmakers at Florida could help Lane see the field early and that is something that stands out to the four-star wideout.
"That's one of the main parts with them is playing early," replied Lane. "I liked the campus and school when I went up there. Anywhere you go you have to put in hard work to get on the field."
Another factor in his recruitment is his friendship with Dalvin Cook and Quincy Wilson. FSU and Miami are putting on the full-court pressure to get him to flip. Wilson appears to be solid to the Gators. If Cook decommits that could impact Lane's decision more.
"I would love to play on the same offense as him," cited Lane.
Lane mentioned he is still "100% committed to Florida." However, recruiting is starting to take a toll on him. He said, "It's getting harder and harder everyday."
The Homestead (Fla.) standout caught 31 passes for 605 yards for a 19.5 yards per catch average and 8 touchdowns as a senior.
