Ermon Lane is already listed at 6-foot-2 or 6-foot-3 by most people, and as he enters his senior year in high school, he could end up being taller by the time his last football season at Homestead Senior High School is all over. He is the type of recruit that clearly shows the potential to make in all the way to the NFL.

Lane already a handful for defensive backs to looks after, and it’s not even his speed that really kills the competition. He’s not slow by any means, but his size and ability to break tackles and avoid defenders is the reason he has been such a threat.

Playing on varsity in his freshman year, Lane only saw minimal action, only catching nine passes. However, those nine grabs went for 181 yards and three touchdowns. He has always shown the ability to make big plays.

He followed up his first year with a solid sophomore season, grabbing 25 passes for over 700 yards, and seven touchdowns, and last season he grabbed 30 balls for over 800 yards and eight touchdowns. With Lane only getting better, expect those numbers to rise as his quarterback looks his way even more.

Homestead only finished 6-4 last season and missed the playoffs. With an improving weapon in Lane in the passing game, the Broncos will looks for a birth in the Florida High School Class 6A Playoffs.

It appears that Lane’s top three schools are defending champion Alabama, and home-state schools Florida and Miami. He is very coveted all over the south and will hopefully have a nice career.
