Tigers, 4-star QB have mutual interest

Clemson hosted several junior quarterbacks during last weekend's spring game. The highest rated of them all arrived with some concerns about the Tigers' new offense.

Offensive coordinator Chad Morris eased the doubts that Wayne County (Jesup, Ga.) junior quarterback Greyson Lambert had during his first visit since the fall.

After meeting with head coach Dabo Swinney, Lambert and his father sat down in Morris' office for 20 minutes.

"My dad was with me the whole time. He was able to ask some questions that he wanted to ask," Lambert said. "We talked to coach Morris about how he came to Clemson, his background…we talked about the offensive system.

"Everybody knows that I'm a pro-style quarterback…to be honest, I was kind of curious about the situation at Clemson and how that would affect me. This past weekend, coach Morris was able to reassure me that Clemson is very interested in me."

He noted that there's more to the spread option than running the football.

"Whenever people say the spread option, they don't realize that there's more than one option, besides just having the quarterback hand it off, read the defense end or tuck it and run it. You can read the defensive end and throw to a bubble out in the slot or a backside route, have a back run another route, or just have some misdirection," Lambert said.

"[Morris] showed me plenty that I would be able to fit into the offense and run it successfully. Clemson is still definitely a school that I am looking at. I think really highly of them. After this visit, I think they still feel really highly of me. Overall, I think it was a good visit."

Previously, he visited for summer camp and then two more times during the season—the North Texas and N.C. State games.

"Those two games, both of those I'd gotten there right at kickoff and I was not able to talk to the coaches before the game," Lambert said.

The most recent trip also included a meeting with Swinney, and it was a positive one.

"[Saturday] was the first time I was able to talk to coach Swinney, and we talked for about 15 or 20 minutes, just about Clemson as a whole, as a university," Lambert said.

"We talked about how they're top 20 in the nation as an academic program. Also, I didn't realize this, but Clemson caps its student population at 17,000. I didn't know that. He said that's kind of what makes Clemson, Clemson. It gives it that homely atmosphere. That's pretty cool, to me."

Prior to the Clemson visit, he'd also visited Florida State this spring. Lambert will be back on the road this weekend for a spring game, but hasn't decided if it will be Alabama, Georgia or Florida State. The following week is spring break, so he'll make some more visits then, too.

The Scout.com four-star prospect recently added offers from Virginia, Miami, Mississippi State and Boston College.

A decision will be made before his senior season.

"I'm still wide-open, right now. I'm just trying to evaluate and see which school is the best for me and which school I'm the best fit for," Lambert said.
