If incoming wide receiver Jaquay Lane has anything close to Morgan Burns’ (33) blazing-fast wheels, then he will be an offensive weapon, indeed.

Jaquavius DaQuan “Jaquay” Lane (b. Sept. 16, 1999) is a promising young wide receiver recruit out of Grayson High School in Loganville, Georgia, who is likely to redshirt in 2018.

Lane, who is a cousin of current K-State cornerback Duke Shelley, selected the Wildcats over Power 5 offers from Louisville, Rutgers and Syracuse, plus a slew of smaller schools such as UCF, as well as interest from Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Purdue, TCU, Vanderbilt and West Virginia.

He lettered two years for the Rams under head coach Christian Hunnicutt and was named to the All-Region team for Class 8-AAAAAAA as an athlete for the 2017 season.

Lane helped Grayson to earn a 10-2 record in 2017 and advance to the state playoffs, and he totaled 380 receiving yards and seven touchdowns as a senior. He also helped the Rams to win the Georgia Class 7-A State Championship as a junior in 2016.

Lane was part of a school record-holding 4x100 and 4x400 relay team, and also played basketball. He should be able to bring both speed and athleticism to the position.

Here’s what Ian Boyd at SportsTreatise had to say about Lane’s potential as a wide receiver:

Another burner from the state of Georgia. He’s a 4.6 guy in my estimation and does most of his work as a flex running back, catching screens and sweeps from the backfield.

He runs deep routes decently, but is pretty raw. Grayson used him as a flex running back, just focusing on getting him the ball in space so he could do damage with the ball already in his hands.

He might translate to running back for K-State, but I bet he stays outside at wide receiver.
