Lammons, who's rated by FOX Sports NEXT as the No. 254 player in the country, made the trek from South Florida to Knoxville last week, checking out the Volunteers' camp on both Friday and Saturday.
"I just think about everything as a family because if you're in Knoxville, everybody's family, everybody's close," said Lammons, who was making his first trip to Big Orange Country. "They're just going to take care of you.
"I didn't expect it to be like this. I knew it has a good history behind everything but as I go forward and look into everything and the National Championship, the legacy, Peyton Manning and everybody who has been here, it just gives you a feeling like you can rebuild it back again."
Tennessee recruiting coordinator Zach Azzanni tripped down to south Florida to watch Lammons practice earlier this spring, liked what he saw and put the offer out there. Now, it's a staff effort to get the difference maker to sign with the Volunteers. Azzanni, coach Butch Jones and defensive backs coach Willie Martinez are heading up the effort.
Lammons, who plays quarterback at Plantation (Fla.) High School, earned Nike Football Training Camp MVP honors for defensive backs, locking down receiver after receiver. He's among the hottest names going as word of his talents have circulated amongst college coaches.
Tennessee is no different as Jones told Lammons on Friday that he'd have a chance to contribute immediately if he signed with the Vols.
"Coach was just telling me I have a chance to come in and play as a freshman," the country's No. 30 cornerback said. "He was saying you have to grow more mentally that physically, and I just like everything about him."
Justin Coleman and Riyahd Jones are tentatively slated to start at corner for Tennessee this fall. Both will be seniors by the time Lammons would be on campus in Fall 2014. So, even if Lammons didn't beat out one of those two, a pair of vacant spots would exist after his freshman season.
"That's something that I really want to do," he said of starting right away, "because I believe in my skills. Mentally, I believe that I can come in and help the team out a lot."
Chad Simmons, a FOX Sports NEXT national analyst, says Lammons is an "electrifying athlete and he has emerged in 2013 as one of the top cover corners in America."
From the Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., area to Rocky Top was roughly a 14-hour drive for Lammons and his coaches. However, certain airlines flying for cheap fares between the two could play a vital role in Lammons' recruitment.
Shortly after returning home, the No. 4 cornerback in Florida released a top 5 of Alabama, Florida, Miami (Fla.), South Carolina and Tennessee. Obviously with four of those schools being in the Southeastern Conference, the league itself raises the eyebrows of the four-star prospect.
"The SEC intrigues me a lot," Lammons said. "I like everything about it."
The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder knows what he wants in a school.
"Just a good education program, which they have, somewhere I can build a family, and somewhere I can feel comfortable. Most importantly is feeling comfortable here because it's a long way from home, but if I feel comfortable, it's better."
Lammons says he does not expect to have a decision ready too soon. He wants to get to Columbia, Fayetteville, Gainesville and Tuscaloosa.
"I'm just going to take some more unofficial visits and see how everything goes and approaches me. But, Tennessee is one of the top; I like them a lot."
The cover corner wants to make a trip back to Rocky Top this fall to see the Vols in action at Neyland Stadium.
"Most definitely I'm going to come back and catch a night game or something."
