Brian Cox Jr.’s commitment wasn’t the only good news the Florida Gators received on Saturday. Florida added their first commitment to the 2013 list with the announcement made by running back Adam Lane ($). Lane was a question mark after an injury forced him to miss his junior season, but he had been considered one of the better backs in the 2013 class before that.
The 5’7″, 207-pound Lane committed to the Gators on Saturday during a visit to Gainesville. With the running game looking for a refresh of sorts, Lane is a powerful back in a small package. His weight alone points to that. Lane wanted to commit early and chose Florida over other offers including one from the Ohio State Buckeyes. He is the first running back in the Gators’ 2013 class, but won’t be the last. Florida will be one of Kelvin Taylor’s finalists, is expected to go hard after Greg Bryant and will still recruit Georgia Bulldogs’ commit Derrick Henry. Don’t expect Lane to be alone in the class.
