Lambert's Status Confirmed

CUTigers.com has confirmed what many Tiger fans were afraid of concerning Greenville OL Cory Lambert. According to Cory Lambert's mother, her son will not be enrolling at Clemson to play football during the fall semester.

The Cory Lambert saga appears to be over.

At least for now.

"As of right now, he'll be enrolling at Clemson in January," said Mrs. Lambert in an exclusive interview with CUTigers.com Monday afternoon.

"We are hoping for the best and hoping he'll be able to go at that time."

When asked if Cory would be attending Prep School this fall, Mrs. Lambert responded, "We just aren't sure at the present time."

Cory was one of the top recruits signed by the Tigers in the 2004 class, and was expected to compete for a reserve offensive tackle spot later this fall.

Standing in at over 6-feet-7 inches tall, and weighing in at 300 pounds, Lambert was one of the biggest linemen ever signed by the Tigers.

Cory's mother went on to add that she fully expects her son to enroll at Clemson, hopefully in January.

Lambert was selected to participate in the North Carolina - South Carolina Shrine Bowl last season and was generally regarded as one of the top offensive tackle prospects in the southeast.

CUTigers.com will have more on this breaking story shortly.
