Lambert Thinking Spring

As the 2003 commitment list grows, Ryan Lambert will find himself becoming increasingly more popular. The 6-7 forward is likely to hold out until the spring and review his options accordingly.

Unlikely To Sign In The Fall

When you own a qualifying score on the SAT and your first quarter marking period GPA was over 3.0, half of the equation is complete. For Ryan Lambert, a standout basketball player at Hargrave, finding a college home won't be a problem.

Lambert, a 5th year prep, isn't sure where his recruitment stands right now. "I don't know," Lambert said. "I'm wide open. A lot of schools came in last month."

Many have come but a handful were chosen for visits including Richmond, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. However, Lambert now says he's not going to make any visits until the spring and is likely to wait and sign late.

"There's a lot of different reasons [for signing late]. A lot of schools have come in since I've been at Hargrave and a lot of them I liked signed players already."

Lambert has steadily improved since last season when he was a senior at Germantown (MD) Northwest High. He participated in AAU ball with the D.C. Blue Devils. His game has expanded to where he's comfortable facing the basket and is a nice athlete. He's around 6-7 and while programs routinely take flyers on forwards, Lambert is less of a high-major risk than others who will sign with high-major programs.

He's routinely active and makes plays. He's left-handed and can rebound. Here's a look at his effort against Oak Hill during this week's scrimmage.
