"Yes, he's in," Corey's mother told CUTigers.com Monday. "Coach Blackwell called me last Thursday and told me that he had been approved (by the Clearinghouse)."
"I kind of won't believe it until I get in writing myself," Mrs. Lambert added with a laugh. "But he's in."
Lambert, orginally out of Greenville High School, signed with the Tigers in the 2004 class and appeared to be set to enroll last fall, but he did not qualify.
Standing in at over 6-feet-7 inches tall, and weighing in at over 300 pounds, Lambert was one of the biggest linemen ever signed by the Tigers, and he was expected to challenge for playing time at left tackle before narrowly missing acceptance into Clemson.
Now, all of that is behind him and according to Mrs. Lambert, Cory has been keeping himself busy the last few months by working at a local golf course, and hitting the weight room three to four times a week.
"It's not exactly what he would be doing with the team, but it's good for him," she said.
"This has really kept us humble and we are so appreciative that everybody has still wanted Corey and worked with us so hard to get this to happen."
Corey will now enroll at Clemson for the second summer session which begins July 7.
The Greenville native was ranked as the fourth-best player in South Carolina and 23rd-best offensive lineman in the nation by Scout.com when he signed with Clemson. He was also selected to represent South Carolina in the Shrine Bowl.
