Ohio State recruiting: Jaylon Lane talks OSU offer

247Sports

2015 defensive back Jaylon Lane talks about receiving an offer from the Buckeyes.

While the Ohio State coaching staff isn't offering as many prospects as they were a couple of months ago, they've still given out a handful over the past couple of weeks.

Yesterday they offered Nacogdoches (TX) cornerback Jaylon Lane, who has been blowing up"over the last week or so. He has also recently received offers from the likes of Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Kentucky, LSU, Notre Dame, Louisville, and a couple of other schools. All of this is in the wake of his decommittment from Ole Miss a couple of weeks ago.

When he called Ohio State co-defensive coordinator/secondary coach Chris Ash, he received some news that got him pretty excited.

"I've spoken to Coach (Chris) Ash for a few weeks and last week he let me know that he spoke with my coach and would have good news coming my way soon," Land told Land-Grant Holy Land. "I called him tonight, he said he watched my film and I fit right for them and he let me know I have a scholarship offer from Ohio State."

Even though he grew up hundreds of miles from Ohio State's Central Ohio campus, he was very excited to pick up an offer from a high level football program like OSU.

"It really excites me. That's a top program and it's good to know I have an opportunity to play with a lot of great guys," he said. "They almost had a chance to play for the national title and it's a great school. I look forward to getting up there for a visit this summer to see what it's like there, see the atmosphere, and everything."

Lane just recently started talking to Ash, but the two are in the process of building a strong relationship.

"We have a really good relationship. He's a great coach," Lewis continued. "He's really upfront and tells you facts. He said he really likes my film and said I could be a great fit in their secondary."

Ever since he decommitted from Ole Miss, there are a couple of schools that he has been hearing from the most.

"For sure Oklahoma, Arizona State, Oklahoma State, Alabama, LSU, and Texas A&M," Lane said when asked which schools he talks to the most.

He's still not ready to name any leaders as he would like to get out on some visits before cutting his impressive list of scholarship offers.

"I think towards the end of next month, I'll have my top schools," he said. "I'm looking forward to seeing all of these schools and going through the process."

Lane isn't planning on waiting too long to make a second decision as he's wanting to get it done sometime this summer.

"At the beginning of summer or before my first football game," Lane said when asked when he would like to make his college decision.

When it comes time to make a decision, there are many factors that will play into it.

"Not at all. Me being an hour away might not be the best and being 10 hours away might not be best," Lane stated. "I just want to get out on these visits to see how everything fits to see where I'm comfortable spending four years."

"Just to see if I'm comfortable at the school and if my parents are comfortable," he continued. "Then also how I fit in their defense and a place where I feel home and know I won't get homesick or anything."

The standout defensive back plans to visit Ohio State sometime this summer and if that visit does in fact happen, the Buckeyes will get their shot. Right now, I think Texas A&M and Oklahoma are the favorites to score a commitment from Lane.
