Lemon Visits Four Schools
Alec Lemon, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound wide receiver from Arundel High School in Gambrills, Md., was a busy guy this week, taking visits to Tennessee, Louisville, Vanderbilt and Connecticut. He does not have any other visits lined up for the near future, however he did fill us in on how these four visits went. "I didn't get to see much of the campus at Tennessee, but they had great facilities and a huge weight room," Lemon said. "We didn't go into the stadium because it was raining the whole time we were there, but it looked absolutely huge from the outside. I liked that they have done some recent upgrades to the facilities and my mother was a big fan of the MRI machines in the training room. They have very nice practice fields and the coaching staff was very accommodating as we took an unplanned visit there and they dropped everything to help us out." "I toured Vanderbilt for about three hours and the campus was beautiful," Lemon stated. "The coaching staff talked to us about the football team for a while and then got into specifics with academics and the history of the school. They also had a pretty big weight room that was very nice." "When we stopped at Louisville I got to see my first spring practice, so that was really exciting," Lemon explained. "I talked to my recruiting coordinator (Greg) Nord and also got to meet with and ask questions to Head Coach (Steve) Kragthorpe who walked us through what Louisville looks for in a wide receiver." "We're on the way home from Connecticut right now and they want me to come back up for camp this summer. It was cool because I got to sit in on a position meeting with the wide receivers and learn some new things. I toured everything there including the facilities and the weight room was awesome. It was a two-level facility and everything was brand new. I talked to Coach (Rob) Ambrose and Coach (Scott) Lakatos for a while as well." During Alec's junior season, he finished 2nd in the state of Maryland for most receptions with 70 for 969 yards and 13 TDs, and helped lead his team to a state runner-up finish in the Maryland 4A division. He received picks for All Anne Arundel County and a All-State Honorable Mention for Wide Receiver.
