East Texas Weekly Recruiting Notebook

The week of April 14-20 was another big one for 2015 cornerback Jaylon Lane. Scout.com recaps the East Texas week in recruiting right here.

Four more offers arrived during the past week for Nacogdoches 2015 cornerback Jaylon Lane.

Lane saw his offer list grow from a region-leading 25 schools to 29, kicked off Tuesday by Arkansas. Thursday was a two-offer day for Lane, who picked up Texas Tech and Miami before receiving a Florida offer Friday.

Lane has been one of the country's hottest recruits during the last two months. He picked up his first offer Feb. 24. In other words, from that day until this past Friday (April 18), Lane garnered 29 offers in 57 days, a rate of slightly better than an offer every two days.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound cover man is a long-limbed prospect with good ball skills. He picked off four passes apiece during the last two seasons with San Angelo (Texas) Central, where he spent his first three high school seasons after moving from Nacogdoches, where he is originally from.

Lane was the only East Texan to pick up an offer from April 14-20, but there were plenty who took visits to college campuses over the weekend.

Carthage 2016 tight end Marquise Guinn visited Texas on Saturday for the Longhorns' first spring game under Charlie Strong. He told Scout.com he thoroughly enjoyed the trip (click here for link to story).

Tulsa was a popular spot for East Texans on Saturday. Tatum 2015 linebacker/safety Kyshaun Smith took in the Golden Hurricane's spring game, along with Van 2015 linebacker Brice Borgeson and Canton 2015 quarterback Chandler Eiland.

Rutgers got a weekend visit from Tyler Bishop Gorman receiver/tight end Connor Hobbs, a 6-foot-4, 200-pounder who caught 59 passes for 1,073 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2013.
