High school highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

As a senior in 2012, he was a Baltimore Sun Second-Team All-Metro selection, earned all-county and all-state honors in 2011 and 2012, and second team Baltimore Sun All-Metro honors as a junior after putting up these numbers: 228 carries for 1,728 yards and scoring 21 touchdowns. He ranks as Catonsville’s all-time leading scorer, ran track at the school and played for Team Baltimore at the 2012 Crab Bowl.

In June 2012, Lane went to a Maryland camp with a hamstring injury. He ran the 40 yard dash in 4.4 seconds and according to the Washington Post's Alex Prewitt, the coaches were impressed:

Thirty minutes into the session, the Terps coaches began dropping hints. "Don’t leave afterwards," they said. "Coach Edsall wants to talk." When Lane and his mother walked into Gossett Team House, they were greeted by a scholarship offer. Lane committed on the spot.

Lane's high school football coach Rich Hambor spoke about his versatility to the Baltimore Sun's Matt Bracken:

"He’s versatile. He’s not 6-2, 240. He’s 5-9 or 5-10, 170, 165," Hambor said. "We’re playing teams that are not going to let him go outside. So he can run between the tackles, no problem. He also has the speed to get to the second level."

Career Highlight:

Earned offensive scout team player of the week in preparing for the Indiana game in September 2014.

Dream Season:

A dream season for him would be producing well enough to earn more playing time behind Levern Jacobs and get a potential starting job in 2016.

2015 Prospectus:

DeAndre Lane is second on the depth chart behind Levern Jacobs at slot receiver. He has the speed to make plays, and Maryland certainly needs playmakers after the wide receiver exodus this offseason. Don't be surprised if you see him catching a few passes this year.

Up Next:

Our next player was a late addition to his recruiting class, replacing a player who flipped to Appalachian State.
