Lane Staying Close to Home

Firestone (OH) senior Jerome Lane couldn't resist the chance to play two sports in college. Check out what the dual athlete has to say about committing to Akron.

6-foot-4, 215 pound senior Jerome Lane didn't feel any need to prolong his recruitment.

"I've committed to Akron," said Lane. "I felt like it was time to commit and I felt strong with my decision."

The senior says that the opportunity to succeed in multiple sports is what made him choose Akron.

"They will let me play basketball and football. Also, this is my city, my home and it wouldn't feel right taking my talents anywhere else."

Lane plans on playing linebacker on the gridiron and guard on the hardwood.

What can Akron fans expect to see from Lane in the future?

"That I'm coming to play and give 110% on every play, and to expect big things from Akron in the next couple of years."

Lane is taking his official visit to Akron toady, but says that if other schools are interested in him, he won't completely shut them down.

"I will talk to other schools."

Lane does plan on signing his letter of intent on Signing Day. Recommended Stories
