Lamb Has Big Hoopfest, Looking To Set Visit

Doron Lamb updated Scout.com over the weekend on the latest in his recruiting process. He's looking to visit a Pac-10 school and may be adding a school to his list.

One of the nation's top high school programs, Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill, got off to a slow start at the Marshall County Hoopfest on Saturday. But their top player was ready to go against Jackson (Miss.) Callaway.

Doron Lamb, Scout.com's No. 26 prospect, aggressively looked to score from the opening tip and helped lead Oak Hill back from a sluggish first quarter to a 30-point win.

"It was a great game," Lamb told Scout.com. "We came out here and showed everybody that we could play good competition and we did that and we won by a lot."

"We were a little sluggish at the beginning because we had been here since [Friday] night and we had all day and were just doing nothing in the hotel, so we came out a little sluggish," he added. "But we picked it up in the second quarter."

Lamb, a 6-foot-4, 175-pound shooting guard, finished with an impressive line of 26 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and zero assists with coaches from Kentucky and Connecticut looking on.

"Coach told me I needed to be more aggressive this year and I have to averaged 20 plus for us to win a national championship so I'm just trying to go out there and play hard," Lamb said.

On the recruiting front, Lamb opted to wait until April to sign. He does, however, have his list narrowed down to a handful of schools.

"I'm down to four schools," Lamb said. "Kentucky, Kansas UConn and Arizona. Then maybe West Virginia, but I'm not sure."

So why didn't Lamb sign during the November signing period?

"I just wanted to see where everybody was going and see who was leaving and if I can fit in that system," he said.

Lamb has taken official visits to Kentucky, Kansas and Connecticut. Next up is Arizona, and he's working on finalizing a date.

"I might try to visit Arizona soon," Lamb said. "I don't know the date, but soon probably."

Lamb, a New York native, still doesn't claim a leader among his finalists.

"I'm not feeling anybody right now," Lamb told Scout.com. "Everybody is the same."
