Prospect Has His Eyes on the Tigers

Tallahassee, Fla.--One of Auburn's early football verbal commitments, noseguard Tim Lamb, had a shortened senior season, but says he should be healthy by the time he reports to college.

"I will be full speed when I get to Auburn in the summer," says Lamb, who chose the Tigers over offers from Miami, Nebraska, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisville and a variety of other colleges. "I feel real good about my decision to go to Auburn."

As a junior Lamb set a Lincoln High record with 31 tackles for losses, but his senior season was cut short by an ankle injury and he notes that he was able to play in just three full games. "I got hurt in the Valdosta game (24-21 Lincoln victory on Sept. 22nd). The ankle is coming along nicely and I am doing drills to get it stronger," he says. "I also do drills to work on my balance."

Lamb committed to the Tigers in September after having a very good unofficial visit to check out the Tigers in their season-opening win over Washington State. He plans to be on the Auburn campus for his official visit on Jan. 12th. "I am looking forward to getting back up there," he says.

Despite being limited by the injury, Lamb says he has been able to stay very close to his playing weight of 6-0, 305 pounds. "Right now I weigh 308," he says.

Lamb plans to play at Auburn with his teammate, defensive back Michael Slade, who helped Lincoln reach the state playoff semi-finals as the team finished 9-4. "Mike had a really good season," Lamb says. "It was by far his best season." Slade committed to the Tigers last May.

The Tigers brought another Lincoln prospect in for an official visit this month, receiver/defensive back Brandon Paul. "He was hurt part of the season, but he is a really good player and I am hoping he will join us at Auburn."
