The Stats: Corey Lambert graded out at 90 percent and recorded 28 knockdown blocks from this right offensive tackle position during his senior season at Greenville High School. Cory committed to the Tigers over South Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama. He was recruited to Clemson by recruiting coordinator David Blackwell.

Strength: Lambert has a broad wingspan, good range, and good quickness for a prospect his size. With this frame and athleticism, his upside is unlimited. He's also had a year (with a trainer) to work on his upper body strength before entering school as a freshman this summer.

Why Clemson? "Clemson was just where I fit in the best all along," said Lambert. "I was always happy with Clemson, and once my mom was happy, I knew that's where I'd end up going. I like the campus and they have a lot of things set up academically to help you out and that was really important to me in picking a school. I also think the program is headed in the right direction, and now all I'm doing is just getting ready to get there this summer to see if I can play as a freshman. I can't wait to see what it's like to run down the hill in front of 85,000 fans."

Tidbit: Corey was selected to the Shrine Bowl during his senior year at Greenville. He was also an AP All-State performer, a two-time all-conference pick, and a second-team All-South selection on Fox Sports' by Countdown to Signing Day during his high school career.

More Info: Lambert was originally a signee in the 2004 class, but he did not receive a high enough standardized test score to enroll on time. However, after receiving a qualifying score in early January, he re-signed with the Tigers and has since been cleared by the clearinghouse to enroll at Clemson for the second summer session. "It was a big relief to finally get all of that behind me," Lambert said. "It's like a dream come true now."

Tommy Bowden Says: "Having two players over 6-feet-7 inches tall and weighing over 300 pounds is something that we haven't seen on the offensive line in a long time. Now you are starting to see a trend with those kinds of players coming here in the last two classes. Cory committed to us early in the process and has been with us ever since. We are happy that he signed with us."
