Lott sees a fit at Rutgers
First Coast took the 40-21 come-from-behind win over Sandalwood Friday night to take the district title. Rutgers commit Kam Lott had a diving interception and returned a blocked punt 50-yards for a touchdown. He said the road win was big for him and his team. "I've been preaching to them all week that if we win this game, we host the first round. When we got this win, everybody went crazy, we dumped the Gatorade on the coach. That shows how we feel about this win," he said. The three-star corner continues to invest time and energy into improving his game, and he's encouraged by the growth he's achieved this season. "I've definitely improved, just by working on my craft. My defensive backs coach is probably one of the best in the nation, he just preaches footwork and hips and everything, and I've improved on that," he said. Lott pledged to Rutgers in May and couldn't be happier about his decision. He likes the way the Scarlet Knights look this year and sees a great opportunity for himself to make an impact next year. "They look good. They need help in the cornerback position because a lot of them are getting hurt and transferring out, so I'd love to come in and play early," he said. "I don't see another school that's the best fit for me, that's the best fit for me. I'm one-hundred percent committed to Rutgers." Lott has no plans to take any other visits. Last month, Rutgers picked up a commitment from another Jacksonville prospect in Raines' corner Lamont Simmons. Lott thinks the two will be a great compliment to each other at the next level. "I'm cool with him, he just took his official visit up there, he told me he liked it. I can't wait for two Jacksonville boys to be playing in the secondary together," he said. "He's a tall cornerback and he doesn't even have to be on a wide receiver, he's got long arms, and he's a fast cornerback for his size. I'm kind of short, but I'm fast, and he's tall and fast, so we're a good compliment to each other." For now, Lott turns his attention to winning a state title in his senior season, and his First Coast team could certainly do it this year.
